...though why i bother posting AARs these days is mute :(
Glad you continue to persevere, Richard. As is usually the case with your scenarios, I have copied the details with the intent of someday converting them to CD-TOB terms, although frankly the chances of my being able to host such a game are becoming increasingly remote. I still enjoy working out the TO+Es and scenario details for potential games regardless.

David
Thank you David

For both scenarios, i have got written orbats, etc. I just didn`t put them here to save space

Richard,

I am glad to see you have not given up on AARs.
I know how time consuming it can be to edit photos and create what appears to be a simple article in terms of composition.
I was busy planning our own escape (now I have retired!) to north Yorkshire shores, so missed reading your lovely and informative AAR earlier.
As others have noted above, these reports are inspiring both to gamers (like me) and to amateur historians (I always like to read about less well reported actions and conflicts that have shaped the world).
With this in mind I am going to be cheeky and ask you what was your "interesting article" and your "disposition map" sources, please, so I can follow them up as a future read!!

Keep posting (please!)
its the nearest thing to a Journal that we have here on the Forum! I shall endeavour to reciprocate once we get re-settled!
And hoping your move to the sunny shores of Spain is fulfilling and lets your gaming, writing, researching, painting mojos thrive!

Very kind :D

By chance a few yrs back i came across an issue of "Artillerie" the magazine of the friends of the French Artillery Museum at Draguignan, it contained several interesting articles (in French of course), but also a contents list of other issues so i hunted some of these down with Tunisian based articles - issue 22 (December 1998) is all about various artillery units in Tunisia 8th Nov 1942 - 13 May `43 and had an account including a tactical map of 1st battery 67RAA at Faid. :)

What Carl really means is that he and his long suffering bride (of Dracula), are relocating back to Whitby, as his original (Dracula's) coffin has washed ashore after the wreck of the Demeter was disturbed in a recent storm. Needless to say, he is 'staking' a claim to the original coffin, and looking forward to getting a decent full days kip!!

I shall be heading down that way shortly, and treating both of them to a 'stake' dinner!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Grant

P.S. Carl, you really do make it too easy for me bonny lad!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

PS Granty,

the grandson of said Dracula, all 87cm of him, (he is only 21months in human terms) got his teddy bear today (in post) and conveyed his delight and thanks via Viber video call - unfortunately the credits all went to "gaga" although Maggy did try to explain to him that a certain Durham lad should get the thanks and credit..... even Dracula had to agree.....
