Battle of Clieves Hill (part 1)

Battle of Clieves Hill

Government forces assaulting from the west against defensive positions covering the outskirts of Ormskirk on the right. The original plan to advance through Aughton to the south is restricted by the guns nestled between the hills.

Grey is a main (order of march) road – green is country lanes (hedgerows)

1st (Bootle) Battalion IRA and the Jamaica Street Volunteers have been withdrawn.


All defenders start on table East of the Hedgerow line in front of the hills.

Due to trench network the hills count as a templated area.

All government forces start on the eastern edge (except for any flankers.)

Only 1 Government brigade may flank.

Government forces take orders from assigned general, unless they are designated independent, if he is lost command goes to the next command stand.

LFS Forces take command from any Command stand in range. No chain of command means when generals are lost, they are lost command does no filter down)
