Aaron took a quick look down at his kilt, then at the others around him. Yes, they wore their's shorter. So without a word, as usual, he wipped out his knife and cut off a section that made his even with the others.

He nodded and accepted the flask from Campbell. After quick swig, Scanton handed it back. "Situation, sir?" He rasped out, eying the German trench line. A slight rain was beginning to drizzle, further thickening the already ankle-deep mud.

Milosh Porebski was tired. He had been walking along for three days without rest. The rest of him men too. Hell, the entire army had. If you could call it an army. One hundred Austrian Poles who had left to fight with the Triple Entente for the freedom of Poland was not an army. It was a freaking protest rally. However, a show of resistance was better than no resistance. So they had all left the Austrian army. Leaving the army had been hard. Not emotionally, but physically. Any deserters were shot. Milosh had slit the throats of three guards before they had reached the inner perimeter. A half dozen more were between him and the outer perimeter, so to had they died. It was when he reached the outer perimeter he started to have problems. He had been the distraction. He had accepted the role without qualms, as he had been willing to die for his comrades. He hadn't obviously.

By the time he reached the outer perimeter, they had discovered the hastily hidden bodies. Since speed was in greater demand at the time, he planned for it. He hadn't planned for getting all three of the camp's machine guns shooting at him. He knew god was on his side when he had crossed that twelve meter stretch unharmed. He had said about four hundred prayers as he ran through that hail of bullets. Any more rounds and he would have smacked into a wall. The next six days had been spent hiding from his former allies. On the seventh day he had been found by the others he had allowed to escape with his distraction. He took it as another sign from God.

All of these things were in his mind as the line of soldiers reached the Canadian rear-guard. He moved to the front of the line to translate for the commander, an inspiring man named Lech Wademski. Porebski was the only one who could speak English, and they were hoping a Canadian could speak English.

"Hello!" Porebski called out as load as he could in his weakened state. The large Lewis gun he carried had taken it's toll. Out of all the Poles, he was the only one trained to use a machine gun. The rest had rifles and pistols as their main weapons. A few had shotguns taken from local farmers. Finding some of the weapons, like the Lewis gun, had been pure luck and a flat Austrian tire. The rifles and most of the pistols had come with them from camp.


Drake is flamboyant, and may go over the top, but if he were not that extrovert then who would move things along?

Aaron heard the call, and swiftly snatched up his rifle and trained it on the rear. There were about a hundred foreigners in a loose marching formation approaching their rear. One of them, a man holding a Lewis machine-gun, had called out. Apparently, the commander was not able to speak English, or else he would have spoken first.

Scanton grumbled inside, not wanting to have to speak to these men. Please, let someone else translate.... None of the men under his command responded with words.

OOC: I wouldn't be surprised at that. Porebski is the only one who can speak Polish, English, Austrian, and some German. The rest only speak Austrian and Polish.

OOC: Ok cool.

Scanton looked around hopefully, but when no one stepped up to the plate, he sighed and cautiously moved forward. With his rifle still trained on the man with the Lewis, he rasped out, "Who are you?"

"Milosh Porebski of the Gadninski Partisans!" Porebski shouted back. His commander asked what the man asked, so he tells him.

"My commandant says he is Colonel Lech Wademski, Commandant of the Gadninski Partisans! We seek food and shelter with our allies of the Triple Entente." Porebski added with a shout.

Aaron thought for a moment, and then remembered. Yes, he had heard of these men. A 'roving band of killers without a country', his old CO had called them. Eying their uniforms and equipment, Scanton determined they were in fact who they claimed to be.

With a quick twitch of his rifle and a point of his finger, Scanton motioned for Milosh and the Colonel to follow him. He led them quickly back into the trench and to Captain Campbell.

"Gadninski Partisans." He scratched out to Campbell.

Having Scanton being the only one who speaks English. Didn't know if Nold's charrie could or not.

I'm sorry, what do you think Canadians spoke, and still speak? It may be a Highland Regiment, but that doesn't mean we speak Scots Gaelic. The vast majority of the Canadian Corps were Anglophones. With a few French-Canadians. So how does only 1 soldier in the company speak English?))

"Pułkownik, chcą nas do spełnienia dowódca grupy żołnierzy." Porebski said to his commander.

"Pozwólcie nam pójść i poznać ich dowódca następnie Porębski." The Colonel responded in his booming voice. The pair walked toward the man that had indicated to them.

"Mężczyźni, tu i czekać na nas." The Colonel shouted back to his troops. As the pair neared the man who had gestured to them, Porebski asked,

"Hello. We speak to your commander, yes?" in his heavily accented English.

Campbell extended his hand. "Captain Cambell, 13th Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force." He told the partisan. "Who sent you? General French?" He asked, namin the British commander. It didn't make much sense to Campbell that partisans would answer to a Regular Army commander, but he had no other idea of how they would have infiltrated Canadian lines. The nearest half-dozen Canadians picked up thier rifles slowly, holding them casually. But thier long sword bayonets were fixed and freshly sharpened. In a pinch, the partisans would not last long against the kilted infantry.

"Kto cię przysłał? Ogólne French?" Porebski asked the Colonel. The Colonel shook his head.

"Przyjechaliśmy tu z własnej woli." The Colonel boomed.

"We did not come here by  order of anyone. We came of our own accord." Porebski translated. He scratched his head.

"The commanders before you just waved us through. We had one who made  query to his commander, but his commander did not know of us." Porebski said.
