Heard good things about this game from all the people I knew who attended on the day. Well done to all concerned.

Historian Prof Peter Caddick-Adams has estimated that Allied fatalities on D-Day were about 1,100 less than those incurred during all the training and rehearsals for the day (4,400 dead against 5,500).
No plan survives first contact with the dice.

The table looks superb, as your shot from behind confirms - and your black and white photos are very evocative - so I'd suggest you've achieved your objective!
