|Don't ask her|
to make you a sandwich!
British forces under Major Hedrick Batguano, Esq. arrive on the farmstead of Petronius thinking a quick snag and grab will take the area Boer forces (commandos-citizen soldiers, skilled in field craft and crack shots). The wife of Petronius and a field hand meets them initially. Color Sergeant Harvey Wallbanger tries to put the woman into custody and is cut down by a bush knife wielded by the field hand. Battle is on!
at 100 yards!
