After their encounter with the Leighton Boys both the BUF and the Duke of Bedford see them as a threat. The BUF are planning to send two flying columns into Leighton, 1 from Dunstable and the other from Aylesbury.
The Duke of Bedford is also planning a large fighting patrol, with orders to cross the A5 and ‘show the flag’ to these upstarts.

The Dunstable column ran in to the Duke of Bedford on the A5 and a fight started. Both sides where slow to move towards the village, giving the villages a chance to form up and man their defences.
In Wing the BUF had a hard fight to get past a line of trenches guarding the edge of the village. This was not helped when their armoured van broke down on the first move and would not restart.
