Sorry for the lack of posting recently, as mentioned in previous posts we were away in Arran for a few days celebrating our wedding anniversary. Unfortunately after dodging the virus for 2 years my wife decided to give me covid as an anniversary gift ! It has taken about 10 days to start feeling reasonable again although the symptoms are pretty much just a horrible head cold. Not an ideal state for painting but there is light at the end of the tunnel.

We’ve not seen an Operation Sealion battle for a while so with a new visitor to the Dungeon I thought this would be a good option if nothing else it normally looks nice. George has already written up the battle here http://musingswargameslife.blogspot.com/ . By way of background we are in the morning of Day 2, the British overnight have reformed a defensive line along West Wood but they have been pushed back again and it is clear the road junction at Sixmile Cottages is key to opening up Stone Street and the way north to Canterbury. The map below shows the position at the road junction the German main force will arrive from the south their Recon force randomly along one of the roads marked with red arrows. The British have positioned a Homeguard unit at the junction with an antitank gun. British armour will hopefully arrive from Elmsted.
