The Search for Mrs Johnston

Sampson and Kofi join forces with Lewis and the Reverend Johnston

They search high and low for Mrs Johnston - she is still lost in the jungle somewhere

The Search Party

Mrs Johnston, still without a weapon, runs into some Askari - these are the rest of the brigands led by the infamous DuPont

Rev. Johnston is jumped by a native out of nowhere - he manages to utilise his full array of missionary talents (12 gauge) to subdue the man

DuPont takes charge, telling Mrs Johnston to stay in his camp until he sorts things out

Taking direction from DuPont the Askari fan out

Achillobators stalk slowly around the side of the small camp

The leading Achillobator is ambushed by the Askari - their muskets bring it to the ground but have little effect. DuPont takes careful aim and kills the beast stone dead

The Askari melt into the jungle to creep away, but the Raptors come after them - they try to shoot them from cover but in so close their muskets are more of a hindrance

As the search party and Mrs Johnston are reunited, they also sneak off, but DuPont comes out of cover to aid his Askari - spooked by his stealthy movement, an Askari opens fire: slaying the Frenchman with a single musket ball!

Sampson lead them out of danger, staying hidden with Lewis bringing up the rear

The remaining Achillobator chases, spotting them as it approaches - chaos breaks out with some panicking and others running

In the bedlam, the beast attacks Mrs Johnston. It kills her leaving Sampson to run after the rest

Poor Mrs Johston

A sad end to the day - the indefatigable Mrs Johnston almost made it
