The Adventures of Major Bohlsupp
A Jolly Jape for “Sharp Practice”
The Peninsula - The Northern Portuguese-Spanish Border
At a sleepy Inn and Tapas Bar “L’Otra Cerveca” is billeted a unit of Portuguese Cacadores under the Command of Major Harry Bohlsupp. His job – to lick these Johnny foreigners – sorry – allies – into shape. The last thing he expected was for a beautiful Spanish Spy – La Marquesa de Gambas Pil-Pil to come wandering across his picket lines, complete with a coded list of every one of Boneys spies currently plying their villainous trade across the continent. How she got it, she wont tell (Ladies don’t). Having got a despatch off to Nosey chop chop, he now awaits a platoon of Rifles under the command of the infamous Dick Flash, and his trusty Sergeant Patrick “Plenty” O’Toole, who are coming through the pass to escort the Marquesa back to Boney for a thorough debriefing.
Unbeknownst to him, toiling up the hard and wet roads from Madrid is a detachment of Voltiguers, under the nominal command of Le Comte de Frou Frou. With him is a unit of the Emperors own men, the Elite Grenadiers a Cheval, led by the shadowy Baron Mange Fromage – the most evil man in France (and that’s saying something). Commanded by the Emperor himself – “Bring me the Marquesa, dead or alive – and get me that list!”
Allied Forces – Protect the Marquesa, get her out of the Inn, and to the pass.
French Forces – Capture the Marquesa, or get the List if she passes it on. Free any French prisoners.
