Historical Miniatures

Fairfax West (Fridays)

The NOVAG Friday night group offers the following games. Masks are strongly recommended. 

 

2 Sep                            WWII                     15mm         Fireball Forward

 

Scenario:

10 November 1942 1300hrs  

Port Lyautey, Morocco

The Western Task Force landed at three widely dispersed sites.  Their mission was to take Casablanca and Mehdia-Port Lyautey.  The latter had an airfield and P-40s were to be flown in from the USS Chenago. Taking the airfield fell to the northern most task force which landed at four beaches and encountered stiff resistance. The airport was taken by 8:00 a.m. on 10 November by a raiding party and later reinforced by an armor/infantry force.  However in the early afternoon, a French force was observed moving to attack the airport. Major John Dilley’s 2nd Battalion Landing Team was ordered to stop them and reinforce the airfield. Supported by a M3 and a T-19 HMC, he advanced. 

   

Aftermath

The French force had taken up a position on a prominent hill south west of the airfield. Details of the fight are scarce.  Howe’s official history merely states that Dilley’s task force “wrested control” of the hill from the defenders by 1430.  They then continued north to the airport which they reached at 5:30 p.m. after capturing 150 prisoners.
