British 8th Army HQ

British 8th Army HQ

The middle ranks of officers were almost invariably drawn from the upper-middle classes – educated in the public schools, instilled with the values of empires, and imbued with a sense of confidence, duty and resolve that is difficult to conceive of today. An officer unit consists of the man himself, and can include up to two other men acting as his immediate attendants.

British 8th Army Medium Machine Gun

8th Army MMG Team

The .303 Vickers water-cooled machinegun offered fire support to infantry units. This was another weapon of World War I vintage that soldiered on through World War II and beyond, proving effective at laying down continuous fire over a long range.

British 8th Army Medium Mortar Team

British 8th Army Medium Mortar Team

The 3-inch mortar was used to provide support from up to 3,000 yards, dependent upon the projectile used. The 3-inch mortar was operated by a crew of three or more (we use three for games), and was often transported in a Universal Bren Carrier.
