12 - 3 - 6
Operation Bluecoat started with some problems, but the 15th Scottish Division has pushed past the German minefields and forward posts in Sept-Vents. We should be in Saint-Martin-des-Besaces by evening. ^ Clear the road leading to Saint-Martin-des-Besaces. Commander expects your force not to take considerable losses. ^ Your Company is assisted by a Troop of Churchills (three tanks) and two Stuarts from 6th Guards Tank Brigade. This is bocage country, so Engineers have been attached to your Company. ^ The enemy infantry lines are getting thin and weary. This should be a simple mission, but expect to encounter mines and ambushes on the way. No enemy tank forces are known to be nearby. ^ Scout the route for enemy ambushes, bring down indirect fire to soften them up and then use your infantry and armour to disperse the shell shocked survivors.
