Welcome to the
Double Update May 29th, 2010:
What dog of a place... Mediterranean is supposed to have beautiful
women, clear blue sky's, and warm kind weather. We got none of the first two,
and a little of the third with the cold Tunisian wind blowing upon us time to
time. The fighting was good though, the men were in very good spirits, and we
have the battle report to prove it!
Wrench monkey speaking here;
The guys have been griping at me that the website needs to change, for the
better. I haven't heard any particular gripes, though I'm pretty sure that it
has something to do with the fact that website looks like it came out of 1995.
Rest assured people, I will work one something better,
beefier, although I have to warn all of you that it might take a while... And
that I will start working on it after university is done, in 2 weeks or so.
Summer side project, so to say.
Battle report from the May 22nd weekend:
"After much fighting across Morocco, we have
finally entered Tunisia. We knew very little of the area, and proceeded with
caution as we headed across. We encountered a very large contingent of the 2nd
SS, with multiple vehicles against, one scout car included, against our 3/4 ton.
We gave them hell, took out the car, and chased 'em off.
Later command advised 1st squad to find the camp that the Germans came out of.
Turned out to be empty, with only the cook being present!
We drank the hooch, screwed the pooch, burned down the camp, and threw out a
couple of mines just to irritate the Germans.
In the afternoon 1st squad went on a long hunt for
German's, finding nothing to the least bit. From what we heard, 1st squad was
taken by surprise, not before the BAR gunner took down a couple of German's to
even out the count.
By late the 2nd squad found it's way around and
ambushed the German's, with the day ending with the 37mm peppering the hillside
and taking most of the German's out that were left... It was a hard day, we lost
many good men, and the German's paid for it 5 fold!"
The film from the camera that took the picture was sent
off to be developed, it hasn't come back as of writing the report, what a
Website side note:
For all who are wondering why the site looks so plain, to put it simply, I
dogged it up and now it's FUBAR. Looks like that new webpage is coming sooner
