Sunday dawned at Firestorm Carpets and Country Club. After my hurried withdrawal from game three forced on me by family circumstance beyond my control , otherwise known as die Fuhrer, I was looking forward to two leisurely games in the mid table no-pressure zone…..

My Pershings were ready and I had a brilliant plan to stop my opponent in the scenario "break-through"

From delayed reserves, came a Panzer grenadier platoon and claimed the rear objective. My arty half track dashed to contest but it was all over.

Next up Mike Parker…………it’s hard to miss Mike on the Flames competition circuit but it really is worth the effort!

My armor couldn't  squeeze Mike's defence.

Sorry Colin, last one honest!
