|The Scenario and set up|
|The starting positions|
|First hits on the Graf Spee caused by HMNZS Achilles|
Thus a balance of objectives were constantly on each sides minds as the engagement progressed.
|Commodore Harwood's Ajax (out of picture), Achilles and Exeter close on Graf Spee.|
HMS Exeter sustaining hits early on
|HMS Exeter under fire and taking hits|
|Ajax and Achilles seek to draw attention away from Exeter under fire in the background|
|Graf Spee takes hits from all the RN ships, knocking out guns and reducing her speed|
|HMS Exeter takes an 11inch hit from Graf Spee|
Honours then to the Commonwealth and Commodore Harwood. It seemed a fitting game to play this close to Remembrance Sunday and with HMS Exeter representing a brave ship that has carried the name of our local city and had as part of her crew on that day one of our junior club members Grand Dad aboard.
Thanks to all involved in a fun days wargaming.
