Some pictures of a game of IABSM between the Italians "Bartolini, Marconi and Errico", and the British, played by Willie.

The retreat of a strong Italian column was cut off by British armoured cars, which were later reinforced by several Cruiser tanks and infantry. The lightly armed and lightly armoured British armoured cars went on the attack, but were no match for the M13 / 40s. But they did buy time.

The Italians went on the defensive and deployed on a ridge, where their infantry and artillery took heavy losses from British artillery. By the end of the day all the British armoured cars were out of action, but the Italians had not conquered the crucial crossroads.
