This is the second installment of Brian Ivers’ Black Jackals battle report using Combat Patrol™: WWII. The Jackals prepare to retreat toward Battalion.
I use red rubber bands for wounds, black for stunts, and white for out of ammunition, but any mechanism that works for you is fine. Sally 4th also makes some nice markers from MDF.
The platoon retreats into the forest to link up with another battalion. Theirs has retreated and is miles away. Lamb has lost four men, with three wounded. 2nd section disappeared completely, as they continued moving into another part of the forest and were scooped up by another retreating company. Lamb has his mortar, but no ammunition. The ATR is damaged and is now even less useful. His little command is not just one officer and 21 men. Jerry outflanked the canal, and the Belgians and French are retreating. The British are now trying to avoid being “put in the bag.”
