Nobly he decided to advise the two novice German Players facing me with the british and JP with armoured infantry. My opponent had a platoon of German Panzer grenadiers in half tracks, supported by a Pak40 a mortar and an HMG, a Panther and a Panzer IV.
I fielded a foot patrol , one churchill, 4 rams carrying a platoon and a 6pdr.

The German Player deployed swiftly over two thirds of the table, his Panther eventually leading. He reached the buildings my foot patrol was occupying. At this point I was ready to spring my trap depolying the reserves, the Kangaroo dismounted with the attached Medic, Piat Team and Light mortar. The 6pdr pushed forward and unlimbered out of sight of the Panther

The German infantry were occupying the houses in the background.
The platoon commander felt a needed to deal with these as it was now hitting 10.30 pm with less than so the Churchill and the rifle sections rolled into the attack but ended repulsed. the Churchill missing a rear shot on the Panther with the same beast hitting it twice and penertrating twice. Game over with the Brits pinned within 10" of the enemy and likely to all go into the bag, however the foot patrol came out in one piece.
