These forces have infiltrated Royalist held areas disguised as farmers, labourers etc and then rendezvoused at the small village of Low Hesket, where the A6 narrows through the village. They have hit it lucky as having waited through the day for a suitable target a convoy including two valuable 25lb artillery guns is travelling north.
(We set up a 'simple' scenario where the Royalist forces need to break out and get off the far table edge. I hadn't anticipated how hard this would be)
|Royalist Convoy stops in the village|
|Trap is sprung|
|Cumberland Constabulary reserves heading across the fields|
|Cumberland Border Troops pinned down in the fields to the north|
|Constabulary eventually force a way through to the south|
|Smoke rising from the Albertine armoured car in the distance.|
A good victory for the Albertine forces showing what can be achieved by experienced troops working behind enemy lines.
