Battle of cambrai
« on: November 28, 2016, 02:48:01 PM »

Gentlemen
Martin from Peter Pig has arranged to put on the 1917 Battle of cambrai at the Nothe fort in Weymouth next summer, date TBC.
He is planning a 20ft frontage so to that end I am asking who would like to take part and what forces can you contribute?
We are looking at using 'Square bashing ' rule set, so infantry and cavalry units consist of 4 bases, artillery and Machine gun units consist of a single base, also the number of British WW1 tanks you have.

Thanks

I'd like to do this ... But Weymouth is a long way. If I wangled it it would have to be part of a week away. So are there any dates in mind ? As it would gave to be school holidays for me
