This is mainly a posting to "whet your appetite" as I am still working on the battle report which will be posted on the Jackson Gamers web site. I'll announce the posting of that report later.
The action takes place in the town of East Bergholt, near Ipswich, in Suffolk. The local Royalist field force, reinforced by a unit of BUF troops, is out to gather supplies from the area. Receiving word of this expedition, the local Anglican League command sent a small force to disrupt the Royalists. At the same time, the Harwich Naval Soviet was sending a convoy to East Bergholt to trade with the socialist workers' union at Brown Brewery. All three sides, plus the local townsmen and police, clashed in East Bergholt.

|Part of the Royalist command advances behind the Crescent Moon Pub heading to the Brown Brewery. They are supported by their "secret weapon", a Vickers tankette.|
The action was furious and resulted in the Naval Soviet troops in control of the brewery but threatened by the Royalists while the townspeople and the police held the pub and the Gilmore Delivery warehouse.
I hope that you enjoyed this "taste" of A Very British Civil War.
