The Battle of Pointe Du Hoc
 

This little known battle was part of the Normandy Landings on what has now become known as D-Day, the allied thrust that was the turning point in World War 2. This push into nazi held territory saw litterally thousands of true heroes as young as 17 fighting to the death to put an end to the fascist regime.

Pointe du Hoc (pronounced {pwet dey ok}) was mass of land on the Normandy coast that projected into the British Channel with a 30 metre cliff on either side. This was the highest point between Utah beach and Omaha Beach and obviously this key position was heavily fortified by the German forces. That fateful June 6 morning in 1944 it was the task of the U.S. Army Ranger Assault Group to deal with this threatening and and critical position.

First they had to scale the cliffs and then face the full force that the Reich could unleash on them.

Death Rags and Bandages are compulsory. (available for sale on the day for convenience @R20 and @R5) 
Barrel Socks and Radio communications are optional but highly recommended.

I understand any offences or dangerous play can result in me being removed from the field of play/ venue and I will forfeit all fees paid.
Respawn Rules All Teams:
Each soldier has a maximum of 3 hits before considered dead and needs to respawn at a field hospital
Upon taking a hit, a soldier is to display his death rag signaling he has been hit and lie down.
He will then start his 3 minute bleed-out time. If he bleeds out he must go respawn at the field hospital.
Before that time runs out, anyone may bandage his arm (arm opposite to team colour) for him to respawn into the game.
When hit:        he loses the use of his legs completely
                        he may be dragged, carried or drag himself to a safer spot and crawl about without using his legs
                        he will lose the use of his primary weapon used at the time
                        he can scream for medics, and give away enemy positions
                        he can choose to defend himself with a secondary weapon or grenade.
Drawing a Secondary he is liable to being shot again which will equate to complete death and he must go and respawn at his field hospital. He may not be fired upon when displaying his death rag unless he draws a secondary weapon.
On 3rd Hit, only a designated field doctor/medic can give come to his aid with a "Mirth-ine Shot" (cause its funny!). This is a syringe with a dice in it. The dice is shaken and then the syringe is plunged into the soldiers leg as if injecting. When dice is trapped the number seen from where the needle is normally inserted denotes the extent of the soldiers injury.  This will determine the prognosis:
1) Apply a bandage to right leg
2) Two minute downtime, stationery
3) Two minute downtime and 30m retreat
4) Two people must apply pressure for 2 minutes. Injured may not shoot.
5) He must be carried back 20m off the ground completely
6) Dead! - go respawn. Start as a new soldier.
Should the soldier bleed-out before he is bandaged at any stage, he will die and then return to the field hospital
(bleed-out = instant death)
Other Aspects:
- Stabs with a knife also count as instant death and no "hit" may be called.
- A hit to the gun is considered a hit to the body.
- All bandages must be at least 2m long.
- Soldiers may not play dead or wounded.
- Death Rags must be completely concealed when still alive and fit.
- Weapons can be disabled by enemy if they touch them and say "Disarmed" realistically.
- No soldier may bandage himself .
- Medics/Field doctors respawn the same way but any soldier can use his syringe for his 3rd hit.
Respawn after death: On a 4th hit, receiving 6 on the dice or bleeding out, return to the designated field hospital, remove and roll his 3 bandages and  re-enter the game as a new fresh soldier.
