Starting the game the Germans would have three rifle sections of nine men, one of which would have a captured Lewis gun, a Maxim machine gun, a grenade launcher and an anti-tank gun. In reserve dicing to come on after turn five would be an A7V and two nine man sections of storm troops one with a MG08/15 LMG, the A7V would enter on the road the storm troops in the second line communication trenches.
Not being aware of the British objectives Dave chose to deploy the Maxim in the left hand emplacement and the anti-tank gun in the right one, two sections of infantry would deploy in the front line trench with the third in the communication trench between the front and second lines, the grenade launcher was deployed in a shell hole in no-mans land the German side of the wire.
The British initially attacked on the German right flank and centre, unfortunately the bombardment had only broke the German wire over on the German left flank and straight in front of the deployed Maxim!
