After a full day of activity the French lost two full detachments, and what do they have to show for it? They chased off a crowd of rabble. Fortunately for Colonel LeNoloc, the High Command retains faith in his abilities. They have deigned to grant him replacements for the troops lost. However, with these troops comes a stern warning that a second day of failure will see him shipped off to the Americas to languish in that barbarian wasteland filled with savages and worse - more British. And even worse than that - Americans!
With a detailed scouting report of the locations and strength of enemy forces, and one load of supplies nearing the northern edge of the county, General Elan can feel some optimism about his chances in the coming day. The spy he has running around the country side gives him a full run-down of the situation, and then returns to the Five Villages to get some rest before another day of skulking and hi-jinks.
Due to the day's activity, Detachment Blanc begins Day Two in possession of one wagonload of supplies (1VP) in train. They are camped atop the hill located at C20 and from that vantage can see British activity at Orange Chicken Bridge and Hethwill Farm, thus confirming the spy's reports. They MUST escort the wagon off the north edge of the map first, spend one turn handing over the supplies. That means that Detachment Blanc will not be available until Turn Five, at which point they can re-enter the map within three squares of where they exited on the Turn Three.
The French Spy remains active in the area.
