Captain Enema Posted September 18, 2011 Report Share Posted September 18, 2011 [b]Manchester[/b] Cromwell packs up his last bowler hat and frowns. He hates to leave home, he's lived in this modest house for over twenty years. Yet, here he is departing for the halls of power, a place he really would rather not depart for, but must go. Samuel quietly takes up his last bit of luggage and the two of them leave the house in silence. [b]Glasgow[/b] "Britons! Today we being the long road of restoring our nation to its rightful place in the world. We'll start here in Scotland and Wales. We'll work with the Germans to rebuild England. One day we'll be a country that is united under one banner. Shortly we'll begin the hard work of restoring Scotland and Wales to its former glory. USI, you are on notice. You will return every speck of British land promptly. The same for those Scandinavians squatting on our shores and Islands. You will depart. The Empire, you had a legal agreement with the former government, we'll honor that 100 year lease and not a second more. It will take some time to transition the seat of power to London. I ask all Britons to be patient. I ask you all to work side by side with the Germans and other European powers so that we can send them back to their homes in the shortest time possible in good health and spirits. Britons, we'll work hard, and in the end we will prevail, and we will establish a rational government that places the interests of the people first. My first official act is to put the House of Lords on notice that they are now a token organization. This hereditary organization is free to meet, but they will never again hold anything more than an advisory capacity with the British government. The lords, dukes, and earls of the realm will provide their own incomes, their own security, and they'll pay their taxes in full and on time. The King and his family will be given their personal estates and the income derived from it. It's substantial enough to keep them in bread and butter for centuries. They'll no longer feed off the British people. My first order of business is to order the remaining forces in Scotland to assemble on Glasgow. We'll put them to rights and they'll immediately be dispatched to assist the Islanders and the Scandinavians with their departure from our soil which amount to nothing more than rank opportunism. For now the Scottish Territorial Forces will be activated to contain the Scandinavian and Islander incursions. Notices are being sent out as we speak to sort this bit out. Starting tomorrow rebuilding of the National Health Office is going to be a major priority. Health-care that is affordable and of the highest quality will be made available to all Britons no matter where they are located. Be patient, work hard, and stand together united!" [b]Islander Incursion Zone[/b] [img]http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2008/09/18/article-1057767-02B5C25700000578-292_233x423.jpg[/img] Hundreds of Scottish Territorial Army soldiers begin to move towards the Islander holdings on mainland Scotland. Sea lift will be organized later to oust them from their two captured Islands. They are armed with the reserve Territorial equipment drawn from their armories. These include the following weapons: SA-80 Infantry Rifle General Purpose Machine Gun Javelin Anti-Tank Weapons 81mm Mortars Stinger AA Manpads Squad Automatic Weapons Air Support is scant as the RAF is in a massive state of confusion. However, in a day or so it is expected that once the Blackwatch is reorganized there will be a few wings of Tornadoes to go along with it. Battle Force Islanders is given to Colonel Henry Pim, formerly of His Majesty's Armed Service, who is coming out of retirement to serve once again. He looks over his roster and notices that he has present and accounted for 15 companies of various size. This gives him roughly 1870 men in the field. He hums, he haws, and then he gives orders to pull 600 of them out of the field and organizes them into a proper logistical department after confiscating several dozen large vehicles to give them something to drive about in. He quickly organizes a staff or keep his workload prioritized. His finds a capable intelligence officer, a bright young quartermaster, a lovely Scottish lass to serve as his medical officer, and an assistant commander for the Battle Force. He gives them the following order, "Get our men under cover, keep them directly off the border for the time being, and prepare them for action. We'll have more men coming shortly." [b]Battle Force Wiking[/b] Colonel Airey Neave, currently active duty, is sorely annoyed at having his entire regiment shot to pieces down south. None the less, he's quite competent at what he does. He has the better end of the stick at the moment as the Northern Scottish Territorials are a cohesive force just waiting to be lead into battle. 4200 men under the Northern Scottish Frontier Regiment are standing in formation waiting for him. He's impressed, very impressed, and he duly states as much. He doesn't waste much time buggering about as he orders his scouts to get on the road and to fix the location of the Viking incursions. His orders are simple, "Find them, contain them, and prepare to wipe them out like the criminal riff raff they are." [b]Battle Force Blackwatch[/b] Outside of Glasgow the battered survivors of the Southern front make their way to the Blackwatch banner. The men are met by bag pipers, hot food, clean uniforms, and supplies. They are given 48 hours to rest while they are sorted, assigned, and given their orders to their new units. Groups of men who arrive as a unit are slotted into larger commands as they arrive as well. The heavy metal of the reformed British Army comes in the form of the 350 Challenger Main Battle Tanks that are being pulled out of the scrap yard for active duty. They aren't the current model, but so many of those fell in battle it is difficult to find replacements for them. Despite their are the Challengers are expected to serve well if the Islander invaders and the Vikings want to make a fight of it. Cage armor and reactive plating is being affixed to them and to the Warrior IFVs as well. 155 SPA are being rehabilitated when they can be found. Supplies are short, but the professional staff that is currently in place is very carefully balancing everything out so that a mixed force can take the field. It might not be a sizable force, but it is hoped that the introduction of armor to the field will make a difference where needed. [b]Wales[/b] 15,000 Territorial Troops assemble and begin the task of guarding their homes and beaches. [b]RAF[/b] Aircraft where it can be found are being rushed to Glasgow to prepare to evict the Islanders and Vikings. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
