Market Harborough is the principle town in the south of Leicester with a tradition of fox hunting, cricket, rugby and keeping things rural. With the HQ of a Squadron of the Leicester Yeomanry this town stands as the base of operations of the Royalists in the area. Linked to the Duke of Rutland, being under his command area, the town has little love for Moseley and the BUF, but understands that needs must. The commander of the Royalist forces is John Leofric Stocks, DSO with his Second in Command being Charles Alfred Richard Coleman, Leicestershire and England Cricketer. Also in the town is the Earl of Rockingham, Sir Lewis Watson who is try to regain his home, Rockingham Castle, which has been taken over by the Socialist forces in Corby. Sir Watson has a small force of chaps that have come with him and a section of BUF which was supplied by the Duke of Rutland to aid him in retaking his family home.
Corby, on the other hand is a very new town, built on industry, Steel, with a large population of Scottish and Irish workers, the socialist fire was there with them and when the war started they declared themselves for the Socialist cause and joined the east Mids Socialist League, supplying the major socialist cities with steel and protected from attacks by the city of Leicester to the north and the socialist towns of Wellingborough and Northampton to the south, but still it makes to a prime target for the Royalists.
Now a Socialist patrol under the command of Branch Secretary: “Red” Roy Mackenzie, a thoroughly political entity through and through, quite happy to use the war as an excuse to further his political ambitions and increase his personal power, advances in the general area of East Langton, with following under his command: Branch Assistant: Tommy “Gun” Boyd, Mackenzies' left hand man, a local hard man, hired by “Red” for protection, Tommy carries the banner. Senior Steward: Stuart Caldwell, No.1 section, very popular with his men, and has a personal following amongst the rank and file membership, something that displeases “Red Mac”. Senior Steward: Danny McGrath, No. 2 section, made up of drivers and transport staff & determined to make a good account of themselves in the conflict. Junior Steward: John Collins, No.3 section, recruited from the clerical staff, given a bunch of pistols and very little training. Section Leader: Lenny “Lenin” Lewinski, No.4 Section, Lenny, a Polish émigré is an even more fervent socialist than “Red Mac” a true believer in the cause. First aider: Jimmy “Doc” Doohan, Jimmy was a Medical orderly during WW1; he has experienced what it’s like under fire and is willing to put his neck out to save others. Sniper Team: Fergie & Paul McShane, brother and sister from the "old country" who have come down to England for the sport, their kind of sport being poaching, currently “in the field” around the Langtons.
Opposing them is a Royalist Patrol from Market Harborough under the command of 2nd Lt "Paddy" Logan, MP. With him is The Harborough Auxiliaries, Lord Symingtons’ Volunteers, Harborough Grammar School Cadets and an old Austin Type 3 Armoured Car, named “The Cricketers”.
The Socialist forces being cut off from their transport home via the railway track, by the Royalist patrol decided to fight their way through the Royalists to get to their transport home. Meanwhile the Royalist forces deploy to engage the Socialists.

The Harborough Grammar School Cadets advanced to the edge of the village and opened fire on the Red truck causing it crash and forcing the troops inside to jump out of it. This made them targets for The Harborough Auxiliaries who poured fire into them too. In the meantime the Corby Socialists carried on their advance with sniper team of Fergie & Paul McShane running to the top of the hill to take up positions on its summit.
