|The ruined temple proved useful to the British to anchor their position|
The Japanese attacked strongly on the British left but ran into stiff resistance from the British infantry in Ambush positions.
|The Japs find their path blocked!|
Meanwhile, the British tank attacked in their rear while more infantry took position on the high ground to enfilade any attack.
|As you can see, the attack was a costly failure!|
Meanwhile there was an exchange of mortar fire between the two sides.
|The British 3" mortar team do stirling service!|
|Even under heavy fire the Jap mortar team stick to their task!|
Finally the Japanese begin to get the upper hand, despite some serious losses of their own, including the tankette knocked out by British mortar fire.
|The Japs attack the British left flank in numbers and carry the day.|
The game lasted seven turns in the end and took about two hours. In the end the large number of pin markers I accumulated on two units proved the tipping point. The Japanese had lost 290 points but the British 380 plus, so clearly a Japanese win. I must get some more figures for this game later in the year: a Japanese tank and anti tank gun I think and a 25lber for the British if I can find the money!
