Sorry we have messed up

(393.9 kio)

Due to a mishap from our side, this sheet did not go to the printer, instead the back of a scenario got printed twice. It will be printed in the next LFT product and in the meantime, can be printed.


LFT 227 "Damsels in Distress"
Add after Italian set up :
"(EXC : ≤ 2 HS must set-up as Guards with the Schoolgirls)"

LFT 225 "Blue Hell at P.A. Abries"
We forgot to add the following instruction before the Italian OB set up :
