|The Workers' Militia, the Hilton Main Miners and the Boulton-Paul Workers|
advance on the right flank towards the farm.
|Manders' Horse and Princess Sudhira's Rifles support the Armoured Car's|
advance down the road towards Bilbrook.
|The South Staffords make rapid progress to occupy White Oak Farm, their left|
covered by the MMG.
|The Smith Gun and a Vickers MkVIc support the advance. The anti-tank|
rifle team waits to ambush the armoured car and the 3" mortar deploys.
|The BUF's Bilston Steel Division and the Chillington Rifle Company hold|
the right flank.
|In Turn 2 the South Staffords occupy the White Oak Farm. The farmer and|
his prize pigs seem unimpressed!
|The Socialist advance continues, using the steam road roller to smash through |
the thick hedges. Manders' Horse is held up short of their objective by the
strong enemy position.
|Princess Sudira's Rifles advance to support the MMG |
enfilading the farm. In the distance the BUF and the
Chillington Rifle Company advance across the fields.
|In Turn 3 the Socialist tank advances on the farm's defenders while their|
infantry makes steady progress in support. The South Staffords' position
looked very strong at this point.
|The tank attack fails to dislodge the farm's determined defenders in Turn 4.|
The infantry will have to go on! Manders' Horse is under heavy fire in the
centre! On the left, Princess Sudhira's Rifles gather for an attack.
|On the Government's side the situation seems well in hand at this point.|
|Despite heavy fire from the defenders and their supporting units the Socialists |
assault the farm in Turn 5.
|A rush of blood to the head sees Princess Sudhira's rifles assault the BUF!|
Not a good move and by Turn 6 they were eliminated. Support though from
the MMG, the 3" mortar and Leach Catapult and the 18lb gun eliminates
the enemy in Turn 6.
|Fierce hand to hand fighting in the farm ensues in Turn 6. Its in the balance|
after the first round.
|The second round of combat sees the Socialists defeat the South Staffords and |
occupy the farm. The Miners advance in their support.
Although there was an extra turn, immediately it started the Miners eliminated the remaining South Staffords. With no prospect of taking the farm now, Phil conceded defeat. The Socialists of the Peoples' Republic of Wolverhampton could acquire the stores and animals of the farm. A thoroughly enjoyable three hours which could have gone either way in the end.
