    I have had mission 24 ready for three weeks but between work and my oldest graduating high school as well as the usual mundane demands the engagement remains unplayed! I hope to get it done this weekend, then mission 25 early next week. Being realistic I doubt 26 will be played and reported by the end of the month, but C’est la guerre

    The OTT Bitter End Campaign is now officially closed !

    Well done and thank you to all who were able to contribute, you put in many hours of gaming and story telling, it has been a privilege to be part of it.

    I will unstick the Bitter End sticky's as they are linked to the Links To All so as to clear the deck for the Daring Young Men, I will also close down this thread in due course as well and start a fresh one.

    Hey, my sincere thanks Wing Co., that's a pleasant surprise. Time to pile into the Mess again then - drinks all round
    Congrats too to Col Raker and Captain Setarius - I guess the following rounds will be on them

    PS Didn't realize that the Bulldogs had such a wonderful motto - very fitting

    Did you also notice the Squadron number. In all these games over the years nobody on either side of the lines has raised that issue.

    Wow! That was unexpected Rob! Many thanks to Wing Commander Kyte, His Majesty, other dignitaries & the Air Ministry. It will be a great Honour to wear this decoration.

    Hummm! The Squadron Number did slip by my brain but it is a "Significant Number" .

    Honour well deserved Baz.

    Don't forget to thank Captain Triggers, who undoubtedly helped you out in many of your exploits. Incidentally I hear that he is to be given a gong and promotion now that the conflict is ended. What will he do with himself do you think?

    To which they, of course, will reply with "Bull ets" - boom boom (Apologies for another very bad grandad pun).

    It's not being a spoil sport Mike - the statement's just plain wrong !
    Rob himself named the Bulldogs as 52 Sqn in the original campaign - The Eagles are, or become, Jasta 24. They are both even named so on the spreadsheet from an earlier campaign. I put it down to gin intake, or, lack of it !

    Sorry flash must have read it upside down.
    It must have been Cano Corso that I intended to make sixty nine.
    It is Gin starvation which is the problem.
    I'd better get myself one in.

    It might just be worry about how much water the aspidistra needs with its whisky.

    I reckon he will stay in the RAF to help build it for the inevitable Second Round & along with Keith Park & other WW1 vets will help "the Few" defend Blighty against Hitlers Nazi's.

    Good call Baz.
    After his interview with Maurice Baring it looks as if Kyte has landed some Air Ministry desk job working for Air Commodore Raymond's Department.
