|Rommel, always close to the action, surveys the scene|
This months game was a Flames of War encounter between 15th Panzer Division and 4th Armoured Division in a meeting engagement east of the Bir Hacheim strongpoint at the end of the Gazala line in May 1942.
|The opening moves as Rommel's armour sweeps to the south of the Gazala position|
|RAF ground attack aircraft were becoming a potent threat to the Panzers|
|The table set up with British and German edges left and right respectively|
|British set up with three troops of Honey's, one troop of Grants, Company HQ (2 x Honey) and a troop of 25lbrs|
|The German set up with a Panzer III Special nearest to camera|
|British armour closes with the Afrika Korps. On the left the Honeys and Grants are duelling with the Panzers, whilst another Honey troop swing to their left to attack the German gun lines around the second objective.|
|RAF Kittyhawks come screaming in to bomb the German lines|
