Knights of the Sky Scenario
Here's the scenario outline and briefing for the players involved in the club multiplayer WW1 game on Tuesday. It's an historical scenario, at least as far as the events of the 7th February 1917 on the ground are concerned, but the artillery spotting mission it revolves around is entirely made up. That's not to say the RFC weren't active over Grandcourt on the day of the battle but, given the late hour and the terrible winter weather, it seems pretty unlikely. It is, however, typical of the sort of mission that Re8 crews would have been tasked with, the DH2s of 29 Squadron were there and Jasta 2 was active in the area, albeit flying Albatros DII's. That's good enough for me!
