The Grid-----> > > > > THE GREATEST GENERATION < < <


Theatre is : Guadalcanal

Coordinates : 7 9

Not all of Guadalcanal is hidden away under stifling undergrowth. This particular area is more wide open. While not a jungle or a forest per se it's still fairly tough going making your way through tall grass and around tough bushes, but it's bright here during the day, the sun beating down, and the humidity and the mosquitoes aren't nearly as bad as in other places.

A major Japanese offensive began this morning, starting with assaults to the west. This squad is part of the battalion that was left to guard the southern perimeter, about a half-mile south of the airfield. The assault on the southern front started later in the afternoon, with the initial attacks repulsed in heavy rains.

Now, late in the evening the squad has been pulled back to the reserve line for a little breather. The sound of heavy fighting can still be heard to the south, including machineguns and mortars. A forward dressing station has been set up here, given that the rains are slowing the evacuation of casualties. It's not much to speak of, just some crates and a few cots and a lean-to to provide some cover from the persistent drizzle.

Fredricks is heavily laden with medical gear, pistol on his hip and is near the back, working on a soldier, patching him up. Stay down, Doc, stay down.

Colt is huddled out of the rain, checking over his rifle. There's a rather distant look on his face. Could be combat fatigue. Could be his natural dimness. It's hard to tell with Colt.

Mud. That's what they have a lot of around here. Mud, some of it streaked red where it puddles the worst. Kappedal's been running back and forth from the south, providing first aid for the forwardmost troops and helping drag back broken bodies though the storm for Fredricks to see to. Having just come back from another run, he's now skidded into the trench, drenched and looking like a drowned, muddy, kosher rat.

Hay is present, shaking his head a little as he makes sure his rifle is ready. "So, we shoot them, they shoot us. And all we get for that is…" He shakes his head a bit, "What is it, exactly?" Looks like someone had a bad day, right?

Annabelle is working in the makeshift aid station as well, helping Fredricks. It's not that anyone "let" her come, per se, but she showed up here and nobody's really gotten determined enough to shoo her away. At least not yet. The fighting is far enough away that she's not horribly concerned.

Fischer is in the trenches. Fishes are naturally soggy, but Fischer dislikes it. He could be a sauerkraut even. Sigh. The corporal wipes his brow, and looks around. He pulls his jacket closer to him, hoping it will fend off the water. "Lots of things I suspect. You alright?" Fish asks quietly.

Colt frowns, huddling a bit deeper, trying to keep his rifle from getting wet. "It sure is rainy here," he observes, to no one and everyone. "We getting snow back home right about now."

Kappedal spits rainwater onto the ground, that's been dribbling steadily into his face despite the cover of helmet. "Least it's warm." Even if one can barely breathe with all the humidity. He crouches down in the thick mud on the trench floor, taking a few minutes to simply catch breath after running around the last hour or two.

Fredricks finishes a patch job on a Soldiers arm and nods, "Alright, you're ready." He moves to Annabelle, "Okay, so far, so good."

"Back home…" Hay mutters at those words. "Don't make me start about…" He trails off, shaking his head a little bit. "Perfect vacation spot, this place isn't."

Fischer ponders that. "Back home, I think I'd be hitting my siblings with snowballs or running into leaf piles depending," A smile at the memories. Feesh divebombing leaves. He sighs softly, wiping at his face again. Even his good hankerchief is soaked. "I think even my soul is wet at this rate," He notes wryly.

Kyle is trying to get a bit of shuteye. He's finding that quite hard, so he is listening to the sounds of the battle from a seated position instead, trying to breathe normally.

Colt gives Hay a look. "We ain't on vacation," he says placidly. Colt is a literal fellow. He cleans his rifle more.

Annabelle nods to Fredricks, murmuring some reassuring words to the soldier. "Aye, so far," Anna agrees. She brushes some damp hair back out of her eyes, and casts a brief look back toward the trench. Another soldier is waiting on the next cot over with a bad leg wound, and Anna moves to him next.

Kappedal finally stands back up, knees wobbling a bit. His boot squishes in mud, almost causing him to tip over sideways right into the trench wall, and he mutters under his breath.

Whoa! Kappedal's shoulder butts trench wall at the sound of rifle fire so -close-. "To the south!" He calls out, pointing into the dusky light.

Kyle stands up, wiping the water out of his eyes, there's shots, there's people, thats a damn assualt! Rifle comes to hand, time to shoot back.

Colt peeks out of his meager shelter, looking frantically around for the enemy. He sees little in the shadowy jungle.

Fischer looks to Kappedal, "You alright?" Fish offers a hand. Fish hisses and turns southward.

Fredricks ducks as the shooting starts up again, oh great. Problem cases are under cover already, as this is a forward area so he just moves carefully around the lean-to.

Assault? What happened to RESERVE line? Anna yelps at the sudden gunfire and ducks down behind some of the crates.

Kyle fires off into the jungle, then moves to a better position. Counting under his breath.

Kyle gets to his position and shoots in the general direction of a nearby rifle flash, then the machine gun comes, damn, he ducks for a moment. "Can't see that big gun." He mutters, the lead rain must be tollerated it seems.

Fischer looks to the others, "I may need to go out there." He frowns, hoping it doesn't come to that.

Kyle has one round left when the next wave charges, ah well, we can hope, or wait for the medic to do your job.

Fischer welcomes the Japanese warmly, as always. Fish is cuddly that way. A gout of flame roars out of the trenches.

Fredricks peeks out FWOOSH! BOOM Fish and Ben doubleteam.

«Ground Combat» Kyle reloads his Garand!

Colt sniffs the air, gagging some at the smell of burnt Jap.

Masaru is turned into a human torch, running around screaming for a few seconds before he collapses and smolders. Tsubasa is cut down before getting ten feet. Shortest charge ever.

Kappedal only has that lean-to in mind as the straggling japanese charge forward, remembering all too sharply how Hiroshi had tried to zoom that way. Heart shots seem to be his macabre theme of the day, as he pulls the trigger on his pistol and blows Tsubasa a new body cavity.

Kyle sighs as people stop shooting things in the imediate vincinty. "That was our break too." He sort of smiles as a jap smoulders.

Annabelle stares, eyes wide as saucers, at the burst of flame from the trench and its effect. "Dear God in Heaven," she mumbles.

"See how the rest of the working day is, then?" Hay offers to Kyle, shaking his head a bit. "Hate to see what they'd throw at us in our time off."

Fischer winces as Masaru runs around screaming. He wishes they wouldn't do that. He takes a deep breath. Fish certainly looks a little more grim.

«Ground Combat» Hay reloads his Garand!

Fredricks ducks back into the Lean To. "Well, that would prevent the men from disrespecting the Corporal.

Kyle nods, looking over to the lean-to, now dread speaks. "How are the wounded?" He shouts. A smile to Hay, if he didn't smile he'd go mad.

Fredricks calls back, "Still wounded, but no new wounds, thanks, how are you?" Mellow Doc.

Colt reloads his rifle, looking around. He seems surprised to see no one injured among the men in the trench.

Tsubasa is still lingering, apparently, gurgling from a sucking chest wound.

Kappedal slides his pistol back into place at his hip. His hands are still shaking, and Tsubasa - his kill - lying on the ground bleeding isn't helping. He watches the man spurt blood with grimly thinned lips, his face pale as though he might be tempted to be sick. "Should we…capture him? Or something?" Other than leave him to die, that is.

Kyle looks up at the non burning Jap. He's stupid enough to leave the trench, his knife drawn.

Hay looks back to the south, shaking his head a little bit. "Think we've shot up all the Japs on the island soon?"

Annabelle boggles at Fredricks and just shakes her head. "Bloody hell." She's tended burn victims before but that smell… gah. She turns away, back to the crate, and puts her head down on her knees to quell the rising nausea.

«Ground Combat» Kyle moves out of Reserve Trench.

Tsubasa looks up defiantly at the approaching American, eyeing the knife.

«AngelOfDeath» Tsubasa breathes his last…

For just a second, apparently, before his eyes roll up in his head.

Kyle approaches the dying Jap, cautious. Trying to creep up on the blindside, in fact he takes so much time the man's dead before he gets there. A good time to scurryb back to the trench.

Hay looks to Kyle and the Jap for a few moments, shaking his head a bit, "Well, look at that. You scared him to death," he remarks.

Fischer points out, "They like to hold booby traps or pull the pins on grenades then hold them to their chests. If you check, check /carefully/," Fish warns. "Won't have one of you blown up by one of them for nothing," He frowns. Poor Fish doesn't notice Anna's suffering just yet.

«Ground Combat» Kyle moves into Reserve Trench.

Kyle nods as he jumps back into the trench with a plop. "It's worth it Corp." He says. A wink too Hay, "To see the look on their faces." Very tasteless.

Hay snickers a bit, shaking his head.

Annabelle is blissfully unaware of the drama surrounding Tsubasa. She loses the battle with her stomach and leans around the other side of the crate to be sick back there. Then with a shaky hand, she wipes a sleeve across her mouth and moves back to tend to leg wound guy.

Fredricks moves back to tending the patients himself, sliding the pistol away, only weapon unused in the battle, whew.

Kyle just tries to get somewhere dry, more stuff might happen yet, and he would like not to be completely wet when they do.

"None of the medical staff got shot either?" Fish seems concerned, making sure no one got shot or hurt.

Annabelle is too far away to hear Fish's question, but she does look up from the fellow she's tending to look his way, her pale face showing the horror of the evening.

Fredricks takes a cleansing breath and focuses on his work, concentrate..

Kyle tries to bury into the trench wall, this is hard as it's wood reinforced. He's still damp and unhappy. Water streams off his helmet onto his nose and off it. Hopefully the rain put the burning men out.

Poor Kyle. Fish looks sympathetic. Although grateful as the water puts out the fire. He takes a deep breath, "You all did well. If you need the doc, the lean to's that way." For now, Fish hunkers, to try to put himself out of the way of some of the rain.

Annabelle is very quiet. She busies herself tending to the blokes who are brought in from the "front" lines. The irony.

Fredricks moves to Annabelle, resting a hand on her shoulder, "Anna, how're you holding up?" He asks as he steps in beside her.

Annabelle jumps a little at the hand on her shoulder, not having noticed him step up. She was off in her own world there, trying to reconcile Gentle, Caring Fish with Grim Flames o' Death Fish. A shaky nod answers his question. "I'll be fine, sure," she replies quietly, before admitting, "Feel as though I'm like to be sick again at any moment." But she isn't, mercifully for the patients' sake.

Fredricks nods, "Take a break if you need to. Don't push it." He says kindly. Reconsiling the gentle, kind Fredricks and the Rectal Thermometer wielding turn your head and cough Fredricks is easier.

Eventually, Fish is turned loose from the trenches. He does at least stay out in the rain enough to get some of the stink off. Although now Anna has SOGGY FISH. He carefully looks to the lean to. "Hello?"

Everyone's pretty soggy today, it seems. Anna nods to Fredricks. "To think I came down here to get away from the shelling." Out of the frying pan, as it were. She looks up at Soggy Fish's voice, a corner of her mouth quirking up in a weak half-smile. "Hullo, luv." A quiet greeting.

Fredricks looks to the soggy Feesh and moves Anna over, taking care of the patient, "I've got this one." He says, commandeering Annas job for the moment.

Rain, Rain go away. Fish wipes his eyes, so the water stops running into his eyes. A smile as he sees Anna. "Hello there. I came to see if you were alright," He looks a little awkward, fidgeting.

Annabelle is a little surprised by the commandeering, but not ungrateful. She nods to Fredricks. "Thanks, Doc." She wipes her hands on a nearby towel, getting them mostly clean, and then looks to Fish. There's a moment's hesitation, knowing that this isn't really the time or place for public displays of affection. Then there's a mental 'screw it', and she crosses the distance quickly to throw herself against his chest for a desperate hug. Flames o' Death or no, he's still her Fish and she's glad to see him all right after all that nasty business.

Fredricks keeps working, ignoring the Fish and his Anna

Fish is quiet while medical staff sort themselves out. He's a statue for now. At least, unntil Anna gives him that hug. Oof! Fish seems a bit surprised, but he smiles and hugs her back. "Are you sure you want to do that? I'm quite soggy…" One could probably wring a bucket of water out of Fish's clothes. He even squishes a bit on contact. Eeek, squishy cammies. He blushes and returns the hug. A little smile. "I'm glad to see you too. I was worried," He admits.

Anna clings for a good long while, not seeming to mind the sogginess. She shakes her head a little, resting against his chest. "I'm just as soaked." And so she is, the shelter of the lean to marginal against the driving rains they had earlier, plus there was some wandering. "I'm so glad you're all right. What happened? I thought we were far back from the fighting?"
