When supplies are short they will venture out of their protected valleys to gather provisions or to persuade others to join their revolutionary cause. On this occasion they have targeted the village of Gamblesby and set up a road block to deter Royalist forces, this is a clear land grab with the Workers Brigade looking to expand their area of influence. The Royalists will have none of this and send out a strong force to teach them a lesson ......
|The Battle for Gamblesby 1938|
|Workers Brigade in force on the North of the village|
|Workers Brigade make for the village and to man the baracade|
|Over confident Royalist regulars head straight down the road|
|Workers Brigade digging in|
|Strong Royalist left flank|
|Workers Infantry tank pushing into the village|
|Vicious fighting around the barn|
But the workers could only hold on so long and in the face of the Royalist Tanks they are gradually pushed back. Eventually a break by a unit of fascists sealed the day and they were through for a minor victory. The workers would now have to pull back or face being cut off.
