The defense of Chimay

QM Sergeant Tcmann reported: I reported for anti-tank duty shortly before dusk. Most of the action was northeast of town. I heard a little German small arms fire but mostly German armor coming in from the Couvin FB. Began pushing my 2-Pounder from the south army base and headed southeast. Met up with a CovertOps sqauddie in an A13 and proceeded east.

We heard most of the German tank audio about one and a half kilometers northeast of our position so we decided to head to the wooded area between us and the reported targets just after dark. CovertOps squaddie 'Firekast' engaged a Panzer 3-F on the way to the wooded area and had a confirmed kill on the 3-F. Once we settled inside the wooded area we had clear shots of the turn in the road east of Chimay. We quickly began dispatching enemy armor units and were met by another squaddie 'DenisD' in a Matilda tank.

I quickly engaged a Panzer 3-F at the southern turn and it was exploded after two rounds. Engaged another 3-F that was in the wooded area N of the road and quickly exploded that enemy unit as well. While moving to get a different view my squddie 'Firekast' destroyed a SdkFz-232 that had been some annoyance to the friendly units that were farther to our north and northwest.

After pushing to and settling into my next position a Panzer 4-D was spotted heading towards our wooded area. The 4-D had turned south before reaching the turn in the road but was still in the open and in view from the woods. Myself and 'Firekast' engaged the 4-D but he was lucky enough to get under the hill and most of our 40mm AT rounds were not penetrating the turret. The noise must have been deafening because the 4-D then turned and moved hastily east out of view. The tank commander in the 4-D then made an unwise decision and headed back towards us looking for targets where he quickly met a fiery death.

It was quiet after the 4-D and we waited for more German panzer audio. We didn't have to wait long. Within a few minutes another Panzer 3-F was headed west towards the turn in the road. We lost audio contact of the 3-F before he reached the turns but apparently he used his momentum to keep moving as I saw him go off-road at the turn still heading west. He made it to a berm where he was searching for targets inside the woods on the north side of the road. I engaged him at 1.2 kilometers and my first 3 shots were poorly aimed and short. My fourth shot however met the left side of the 3-F with deadly accuracy causing the Panzer to explode.

After waiting for for more targets it seemed that we had repelled the attack and we shortly RTB'd thereafter. In total I had 4 confirmed kills.

Utinni's War Diary

Friday 18th November 1940

Well they say war is hell, and I guess I found out the hard way.You will notice it has been some time since my last journal entry. You'd think I would have plenty of time to write journal entries from my hospital bed, but unfortunately time is something I have but the ability to write is not until now.I am writing to you from my bed that is true, but I have only just had enough strength in my arm to write.
