Operation ‘All Gas And Gaiters’

Having left the backup vehicle, the three teams of heavily armed men flitted across the pub car park like phantoms. Even if they had made any noise, it would have been drowned out by the sounds of speech making and excited responses coming from the BPF meeting in the back room of the ‘Dog and Duck’, a known haunt of Brixton Popular Front supporters. 

Sword Team took cover behind a Ford Capri Mk.II and readied their silenced weapons. Meanwhile, Shield and Dagger Teams took up covering positions. A Sword Trooper moved slowly forwards, stalking the sentry in front of the fire exit. As the BPF member paused to re-light his suspiciously large cigarette, the Trooper made his move, plunging his Sykes-Fairbairn dagger up and into the target’s skull through his neck. The sentry fell without a sound, his descent controlled by the encircling arm of the soldier. The same arm was also able to secure the AK-74 the sentry had been carrying.

Moving rapidly, all the teams approached the building. Shield Team took up position to preserve the exfiltration route whilst Sword and Dagger entered the building via the unguarded fire door. So far, no one had spoken, the arch professionals having practiced and planned for this operation for the past week. Now, the SAS were on the prowl, looking for the BPF leadership and the hostages said to be present, including one of their own. Time for some payback on behalf of the Paras…

The ‘Dog and Duck’


Special Air Service

Sword and Dagger Teams of 22 SAS Regiment have been tasked with entering the Marcus Garvey Community Centre and eliminating the self-styled ‘Politburo’ of the Brixton Popular Front. They are equipped with suppressed weapons, although they all also carry CS gas and Stun grenades. One member of each Team also carries a shotgun for carrying out Forced Entry. Once inside the building, they are to clear every room until they find their targets, then exfil through the fire exit secured by Shield Team. If they find any captured personnel, they are to extract them.

Special Rules – SAS are represented by markers until they are fired upon or fire themselves. Teams have to stay together, so up to five markers are deployed, moving within the building, then revealed as a ‘dummy’ or ‘actual’ team.

Brixton Popular Front

The Politburo are guarded by twenty of Bob’s Banditos, all with small arms. These are placed in the building as required. Some must guard the Politburo members and some must be allocated as guards for the hostages.

Special Rules – The Politburo are represented by up to five markers in the building. These are revealed when fired upon or attacked. The Politburo must stay together for protection. None of the Politburo members are armed.

Hostages – There are possibly two British Army personnel being held hostage at the Centre and possibly some others. Be advised – killing hostages is BAD!

 Another great scenario from our mate Wayne Bolland. See how it plays out tomorrow night.



  1. Can't wait to see the AAR. Looks very promising indeed.
    Is the pub all on the ground floor, or are the upper stories conveniently on the side? Is it a 4ground building?

  2. Really looking forward to the AAR!
