Would like to mention 2 games I did get in. The first was with my Italians (Sgt Bustamanti) in Kenya. They were soundly defeated by the British and there were no particularly interesting post game actions. A fun game but not a great battle report.
Staying with the desert theme I took 6 Tomahawks up from 111 SQN on a fighter sweep. Fighter Sweep is a great mission. It is similar to "patrol" in that you don't exactly know what will happen when you start.
Sdr Ldr " Puck" Poole Pessimistic vet 1 kill
F/O Jessie Oldfield jovial born leader
Sgt Ken Harrison foolish
2nd vic Lt Thurlby liberal 1 kill
Flgt Sgt Nick Skinner Generous Vet
Sgt George Turnhill Fanatic
Sdr Ldr "Puck" Poole was leading 2 vics on a fighter sweep when Dandoline came over the wireless. "Bandits 12 angles heading toward comet". Comet was a small convoy that was returning from Tobruk. Looks like they were going to earn there flight pay today! He only hoped he would get a chance to drink it.
He spotted the enemy far off and due to his experience, managed to get behind the stukas. "Must be italians" he thought. As he closed in he told everyone to break the vics and go for a stuka. He and Oldfield managed to do just that before the firing started.
Nick takes out a fighter!
