Back after tiffin the British tanks finally began to arrive and push on towards the German right allowing the British to continue their attack on the German left, the dice gods now decided to desert Dave and the British trench fighters were able to get into the German trenches, one can only assume that the German MG gunners panicked at the sight of the tough trench fighters streaming towards them, an event drew an extra move card which took them into close combat range, similarly over on the right the German anti-tank gun was unable to deliver any damage to the advancing tanks, however the turn of an event card enabled the Germans to put an ammo low marker on the MKIv which forced them to engage at effective range only, just as well as Dave's Germans were steadily gaining pin markers, one is always in a quandary, do you use your order dice to rally off pins and maybe let the enemy off getting firing casualties that turn or do you attempt to keep up the firing and risk more pins? The German anti-tank gun was then knocked out and things looked all up on the German right, luckily the A7V then arrived followed soon after by the storm troop counter attackers, Dave sent one group to occupy the bunker and the other over the top to wrest back control of the left flank, meanwhile in the centre the British rifle grenadiers and Lewis team kept the Germans in the centre under pressure, knocking out the grenade launcher team. The Brits did not have it all their own way in the centre, an event drew a stray artillery round card that landed plumb in the middle of them, also over on the German left the trench fighters holding the objective were gradually been whittled away, eventually only Corporal Jones remained who single handed held on until it was to late for the Germans to wrest back control, as the British consolidated their attack on the right and centre, eventually knocking out the A7V. One must not forget the myopic British sniper, how many ones did you throw to hit Jon, however he did finally manage to dispatch the German CO.
