Java (1811) - another Christmas Cracker!

At OWS in recent years we have established a fine tradition of Christmas special games. These are multi-player BBB scenarios created by Dr Mark Smith, but with the added dimension that each player has personal objectives unknown to his team-mates, and often conflicting with theirs. Mark likes to find obscure corners of history for us to visit. Previous years have seen us fight at Magdala, Khoosh-Ab, and Amoaful.

This year, in honour of Colin's recent return from Indonesia, Mark transported us to the British invasion of Java in 1811. The climactic battle of the Java Expedition was the storming of Fort Cornelis, and this was the action we fought.
