Turn 8

La Signy Farm turn 8

Not surprisingly, IR 140 lost three companies from the lead battalion at the end of the previous turn. The Whippets advanced towards the sugar beet factory, drawing fire away from the New Zealanders.

“B” Brigade of the New Zealand Division now arrived on table near Colincamps. IR 14 spotted the threat, curtailing their advance. The commander was all too aware of the desvastating effects of advancing in the open towards unsuppressed enemy infantry and machine guns.
