I dunno how it went other than the Japs got what they were after (whatever that was) and withdrew. I think we may have lost a section but otherwise were able to withdraw back to Isurava. Not a lot of action it seems.
Nonetheless my wargaming pal and redoubtable Jap commander Greg sent some of his beautifully Photoshopped pictures of what action there was - from a Japanese perspective of course. One shot appears to be of Andrew's Aircobra - implying we (the Allies) may have had some air cover? Wonders never cease as 'Dugout Doug' MacArthur had only recently withdrawn all combat aircraft to the Australian mainland - just in time for us to make the forlorn assault to retake Kokoda (yeh, right!)
The table set-up with Allied commanders deep in conference with game umpire Andrew - where are those bloody Japs?

Oh, there they are!
And finally, there! That's a lot of bleedin' Japs Sir! Er, Sir?...
(Jap commander) Big George picks his nose... er, sorry contemplates his patch of jungle and realises just how bloody annoying those (Jap) starshells can be!
A much-vaunted Aircobra makes a tree-top run - hope he plastered some of those Japs with cannon-fire or dropped his bloody great 500 pounder bomb right on top of 'em! (although fat chance of that unless Ian was flying it!)
The following is totally unrelated to the above but is a link to the Angry Lurker's blog, which has recently achieved some dizzying heights in blogdom with now over 800 followers. As Mr Lurker is also a fine deranged wargaming enthusiast like the rest of us, I thought I'd make a link to his site and give it a plug. He's a zombie movie affectionado too, which further commends him to us!
The Angry Lurker: 800 Followers and the One.
Definitely a quality blog. Mr Lurker produces great wargaming figures, movie reviews and as a bonus, the most tasteful shots of a pneumatically-endowed lady or two.
So be a lurker at Angry's blog - you won't regret it!
