Also included are a suite of mods to change insignia and vehicle markings for British units to those appropriate to the scenario.

This is not a remake of The Sunken Lane from the original CM:BO disc, but a from-scratch scenario design, using information gleaned mainly from The Creully Club newsletter. The scenario departs from a strict historical retelling of the action where necessary for a balanced game.
Feedback welcome. Detailed designer’s notes included in read me file and in scenario file.
