These pictures have been on my iPad for a while and I just hadn't got round to sharing before the main battle at Albanich. It was a good battle so I thought I ought to share just for the record. The battle for Little Orton took place slightly to the north of Great Orton around the main village. My memory is a little hazy so I will let the pictures tell the story. The scenario we played was a 'breakthrough' battle where the Royalists had to push through the Albertine forces.
|The spring offensive....|
One of the St Andrews league units move into the village to take up defensive positions in the Butchers.
A strong Royalist force of regulars backed up by the Carlisle Constabulary approach the village from the SE.
Albertine forces dig in to the North with two Matilda l Tanks looking to force the right flank.
Air support for the Albertines.
