    Pete (Stumptonian) - I have you down for June's game if that's OK with you ?

    Given you the October slot John, that should allow you plenty of time to play catch up.

    Default OTT CYM Rosters

    The rosters for CYM are completed as far as possible (fingers crossed) & linked to the rules sticky.
    Have a look - every time I do I find something I've missed but might have it this time (bar additional results from Rob).
    I am trying to track total victories from both campaigns of the pilots involved (as previously done) & have an additional number (from the POW/KIA) from the previous mission to give you an idea of an overall total.
    There is also a 'mish' column that shows the number of missions/victories from the previous campaign for tandem crews which goes toward their medal count and not a concern for you chaps, just an aide to save me swapping between rosters & counting on m'fingers !

    You will love the Hermione. Visited it a couple of years ago when it was moored at St Malo.
    Heres a link to the e minis website. They have a great range of all sorts, and the English versions are often on promo.
    Enjoy Spain

    Thanks Paul, I'm looking forward to Hermionie. Oh and some sun as well.

    A couple of minor, minor points...for my Eagles opposition I think you mean "Schwendemann" and not "Scwendemann". The 2nd just looks weird for a German name. The even more minor point is that there's a "." at the end of "Garrelt." I'm not sure if that was a type for another letter or just extraneous. But very, very minor points.

    I didn't mean anything - the names are cut and pasted from a list of WW1 pilots so someone else's typo, or, that's how he spelt his name but I have added the h and deleted the spurious full stop if it makes you feel better !

    Makes no difference to me really. Just very minor observations and I didn't mean to offend. You do a lot of hard work and it is appreciated.

    No worries, Dave. Two weeks ago, I fell on the ice, heavily and flat on my back. No broken bones but still a fair bit of pain so gaming is a challenge.

    my planes are mainly later period i.e camels, SE5s, DR.1 D.v11s. can I drop in later into the Campaign i.e. mid late 1916?

    Did you mean mid late 1917 Iain ? We should get there in a few years time if we follow on through the three month campaign schedule !
    Meantime you can always look at the previous late era campaigns linked in the sticky above and try your hand at them or follow Paul's lead to convert the missions to a later period & post them in the AAR sub-forum.

    That's a star video Dave. I wish I could speak German a tenth as well as this guy speaks English. A thorough and very interesting tour of the Albatros.
    Thanks for sharing REP deserved but the gun is currently jammed I'm sorry to say

    Stumbled on it quite by chance - I liked the fact he talked through the development that led to the D.Va.
    The only obvious error I picked up on was about the D.V when he stated the engine was uprated from 160 to 180 hp, it would have started life with the Mercedes D.IIIa engine which was about 170hp (180hp by British rating), then had the Mercedes D.IIIaü 180hp (200hp by British rating) upgrade. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercedes_D.III

    I watched several of his videos when I was off work over the winter - he does a good job for the most part.

    For Christmas I got a copy of The Birth of the Royal Air Force by I.Philpott. I was looking through it recently, and while it reads more like a scrapbook than anything, it does have an appendix of which planes were in use by each squadron throughout the whole war! Now, it might say the squadron has Martinsyde G.100s in use without ever saying whether that is one G.100 or 20 G.100s, but we can still use the data to get an approximation of which planes the British were using during Jul-Aug-Sept 1916 period of this campaign:

    Heavy Use
