Any German disturbances will be fended of promptly. Due to the fact that the front is not consolidated we expect to encounter recon elements from LXXIV Corps’ Aufklährungsabteilung.

2 BTN in Belgium 1 - Night Interrogation Part2

The heavy fighting in the dark continued for a while. We managed to creep up and knock out a Pz III/IV with one shot. This made the Germans a bit indecisive and we took advantage of the situation. More prisoners where taken and the fighting diminished and the Germans had to withdraw. Miraculessly we came out of the fight without loosing a single man. A few wounds including the mission CO. We know this is only the beginning and we wount be as fortunate in the days to come.
