The game focuses on the link-up between 7 Para and Lord Lovat in the small village of Le Port on the 6th of June 1944 that Richard has been patiently researching for many months. The building of the table, figures and terrain has been progressing at a more frantic pace in true, traditional, slightly last-minute Salute fashion.
Not content with adding buildings, Richard has gone beyond the call of duty and added a French pissoir, vegetable patch, collection of newly-harvested potatoes and other sights and sounds of a small French town. I shall be disappointed if I turn up on Saturday morning and he doesn’t have a newly printed French newspaper for the town café. (Hmmm….now maybe there’s something I can contribute…!)
