They Are Coming - More Great War CoC

We wait, we know they are coming, the scouts sent out by Sergeant Boot confirm our worst fears, the front line is overrun. They come but we are prepared, we will hold them for as long as we can.
Lieutenant Reginald Rawnsley, OC, 2nd Platoon, Pendeford Pals Battalion, 46th Div

We have overrun the British front line defences, our follow up battalions have our flank. We must now press on to the next line, I believe the Tommies call it their main battle line. We expect a strong opposition here, we also lack the element of surprise now, but our men are in fine spirits and we firmly believe we now have our enemy on the run.........................
