Re: Tales of Valour

Some rescued posts from the Battle of Kuala Pahang: Hood's Army smashes the Malayan forces back to Kuala Pahang (Sat Aug 25, 2012 7:52 am ) Twenty four hours. Six hours. Twenty four hours. Six hours. How the hell had they mixed that one up, Hopkins asked himself, again and again. It wasn't his fault...

Re: Jungle Work

Abdul did not even notice Edwards come in. He had entered and sat at the back and waited, quite patiently, for the briefing to finish. It must have been boring for a Company man, Abdul thought. Even he could hardly stay awake. He was familiar with the terms, but in the sense of scale, they meant not...

Re: Jungle Work

Abdul never wore uniform when he traveled; simple trousers and a linen shirt was enough, but the underground bunker was very well air conditioned, so he had brought a thin sweater as well. It had the name of a polo company on it and a random year, selected to look good on a sweater. In contrast, the...

Re: Jungle Work

On the plane over, Jack Harper remembered the rail yard for some reason. It passed into his memory and then passed out again, like a fly in a kitchen. All he knew was that he was going to meet the Big Man for a debrief on Smyth's opinion, as he had done for the past two years. This time the Big Man ...

Re: Jungle Work

Adam waited inside the Range Rover. When Abdul came to Jesselton, he used the same driver, and the same specially-designed, armoured Range Rover. In the home country he had fleets of executive four wheel drives, and in Haversham or North Point, he used a Wentworth, but here in Jesselton, there was a...

Re: Jungle Work

'No-oo. I have to go to Jesselton. Well, why don't you come? Mummy can come too. If you ask her nicely, she might let you.' Abdul rubbed his eye with his finger. Next to him, the clouds flew by. The sun was beating on them. It made Tairendia look far, far away. 'Well, I will be working. I have to go...

Re: Jungle Work

At Karak, the Regiment lined up next to the train tracks, under a corrugated iron cover that held back the sheets of rain. The Pioneers were short men, selected from all across North Questers, swarthy, dark Dharmats. They had joined the Yeomanry because they had nothing better to do. They had joined...

How to build an ORBAT

What you will need: Some coins. The more the better. If you don't have coins, toothpicks, or even cigarettes, will work. A pencil and paper if it helps you. At least 100 IQ. What is an ORBAT? An ORBAT is an order of battle. It can be provided for individual battles or campaigns, but in general use w...

Re: Continent of Dreams

Rain slammed against the windscreen. 'Terrible weather,' the taxi driver said. He could barely make out the neon signs in front of him. Motorcycles, their drivers covered in cheap plastic foldable ponchos, weaved in and out of the traffic. The girl in the back said nothing. Glued to her little phone...

Re: Continent of Dreams

Amara knocked her knees together. It wobbled the little plastic street-side table, so her father, Vihan, steadied it. 'Stop that,' he said. From inside the restaurant, the smell of food wafted out, and mixed with the sound of people shouting about nothing. Amara pushed some food around with her fork...
