Scrimmage Results and Notation
The 2nd Ranger Battalion was beaten by the 44. Infanterie-Division (44th ID) in a closely-matched scrimmage. The battle begin on TE-Rakowice where the 44th ID held the Rangers to a hard fought 2-0 victory, despite the Rangers almost completing a successful final assault. Both units then switched to the Pacific theatre of war, fighting on RSTE-Betio. A decent defence from the Rangers saw the 44th ID delayed at the E objective for about ten minutes, but the German unit managed to pull through eventually. On the final assault on the island by the Rangers, good movement saw the objectives being captured quickly to give Rangers a victory. The final score for the scrimmage is 3-1 to the 44th ID. The 2nd Ranger Battalion would like to sincerely congratulate and thank the 44th ID for a wonderful match, we look forward to future rematches with the unit.
