Your eyes slowly adjust to the gloom but immediately start to sting. Dust and plaster has fallen down from the ceiling, and you taste it in your dry mouth. Slowly the ceiling lights flicker on as the emergency generator starts up, and people begin to pick themselves up... ...Its August 9th. You've just survived the biggest killer of man in history. In 30 minutes, 3.6 billion people have died across the globe. Unknown to you, the population of the UK has quartered, and will continue to drop. You think briefly of your family before being dragged onto your feet by your platoon sergeant... "Come on son, there's work to be done!" Comes the gruff voice from the dark... but not yet... for now we wait... in the dark...

"Alright lads, Just to ease your mind a bit, recce guys are still working hard, got some shots from the front. First one is of Dockway Road, There used to be a thriving shopping high-street type place up there, now its completely defunct of anyone not bearing arms against us! Zero wants no3 platoon

"Alright lads, Just to ease your mind a bit, recce guys are still working hard, got some shots from the front. First one is of Dockway Road, There used to be a thriving shopping high-street type place up there, now its completely defunct of anyone not bearing arms against us! Zero wants no3 platoon to move up and secure Ganymede council estate (see Fig2), it still has a relatively large civilian population, who as far as we know, are loyalist workers. Reports from some of our moles say that those union posters we found the other week were made and distributed from a printers, ehrm, London Printworks if I'm not mistaken. I want three guys to set up an OP overlooking it, you can do it from the opposite side of the canal.

A final note, The bastards took out a patrol from the Royal corps of transport, they we're carrying about 2,000 rounds of CS, so when your out there, make sure you have your respirator and spare cannisters to hand"
