Both Prussian and British forces having established their beach head bases dispatched patrols out to seek contact with any native habitations that might be nearby to initiate contact and begin studies. The terrain being very marsh like and hot lead to slow progress, till both sited what a first was thought to be a village or even small town but turned out to be a ruined temple of some past glory. Both the Prussian and British patrols raced to secure them.
Fire on the both British Units becomes brutal as the Prussians find the range and shake out their lines. Alas the British have to fall back, into the arms of their late to arrive reinforcements.
Capt Klinq orders his men to resist to the death! One suspects that his troopers are from very outlying parts of Prussia as their continued rifle fire remains very ineffective encouraging the British to charge the ruins.
Getting the initative, my stalwart infantry charge across the open ground and into hand to hand melee with the dug in defenders. After a vicious round of melee, the Prussian position is penetrated and the melee spills into the trenches.
