Imperial withdrawal, nearly completed

On the way, 20th August 1713


Most of the Imperial units still in the Principality have finally converged in the outskirts of Vilafranca town, not too many miles away from Tarragona city. Everything has gone as smooth as Count Wallis expected, with no major incidents. All of the units now are forming one single, long column...

...except for the one farthest to destiny: delayed by the extremely rough terrain as well as the vicinity of the just fought battle of Ponts, the Bagni Regiment is still quite far from the meeting point of Tarragona -maybe too far for arriving in time to be embarked in the English fleet... Fearing this could actually happen, Colonel Bagni has just decided to send a fast courier in inform Count Wallis in Tarragona about their position as well as their likely delay, hoping their high commander will manage persuading the English to wait for them...
