Running Guns to the Rebels

The Severn Riverside Wharf Labours Federation (SRWLF) had been running low on weapons and ammo recent engagements had not gone well, Harry Doyle had arranged for a contact in Birmingham to bring down a cache of weapons via the canal.
The barge was due to arrive at 8.00pm it was now 8.15pm and no sign of the barge, awaiting on the Bridge at the back of Perdiswell House, Harry and 20 of his most trusted fighters became nervous, the phone in the gate house kept ringing how much longer could he afford to wait.

Reluctantly Harry signals the barge to head back down stream and heads off into the darkness of the grounds of Perdiswell House, the weapons would have to wait.....
