Episode 51 – Road to CRISIS

This recording covers our trip to CRISIS from the 2nd-4th of November 2018, during which we ran a large game depicting the Tavronitis Bridge battle on Crete in 1941, which some people may have seen featured in recent issues of Wargames Illustrated. I was joined by clubmates James Morris and Thomas Webster-Deakin. After the show we visited Ypres, which was poignant since we were there just ahead of the 100-year anniversary of the end of the Great War.

During the Saturday of the show I recorded short interviews with the organiser, Willie Bogaerts, as well as Richard Clark of TFL. There’s also plenty of chatter and moderate boozing during the game itself…

On the Sunday I recorded parts of our visit to Ypres, including a sobering and beautiful service at the Menin Gate where we heard a veteran choir and the daily rendition of The Last Post.

The end of the podcast has the latest prize draw for Patreon backers to win a £20 gift voucher courtesy of bossminis.co.uk – to whom I am once again thankful. I also thank new Patreon backers for their support. You can visit patreon.com/downorder if you wish to become a patron.
