Defence of Lympne Airfield 17 Sept 1940

The latest action in my PBEM campaign of Operation Sealion – the German invasion of Britain in 1940.  The campaign is fought using the rules supplied by S-2 Shop Productions, which is a useful guide with orders of battle, but also has several failings in accuracy.

Background:  At 01:00 on 17th September 1940 3rd Fallschirmjaeger Battalion landed and captured Lympne Airfield in Kent.  The attached reports document the first British counter-attack.

I have created the report in a PDF format for quick viewing and also a Word document for those who wish to view the photographs in greater detail.
