PACIFICON cont'd (22/25)

Early in the battle the smoothbore battery comes into action behind the center nullah, which is filled with Jacob's Rifles and, to the right (North) the 66th Regiment (Berkshire). To the left of the guns is the detachment (in reality a half-company but in the game more like a half battalion) of Bombay Sappers & Miners and just barely visible to their front, 1st Bombay Grenadiers. Already Ghazis have begun infiltrating along the East nullah but remain clearly visible thanks to their green standard flying above the lip of the ground...

Open ground behind the smoothbore guns...
