"... fifty-three fatalities, and three unrecovered vehciles. Overall, below expected levels."
"As for recovered archeotech, as you suspected there was very little. It appears the xenos Eldar may have removed a handful of items from Vulcanis Hive before we arrived to drive them out. Our most significant recoveries occurred in Vesuvius Hive where we did not encounter any Eldar forces, but did engage Imperials several times, the last being as we moved en masse to Vulcanis."
"Our largest engagement with the Eldar occurred as we withdrew from Vulcanis Hive and made towards the extraction point at Helios Spaceport. They attempted a raid on our convoy where the recovered items were being transported. Two transports carrying parts recovered from both Vesuvius and Vulcanis were destroyed beyond salvage but they other 4 were able to escape to a safer route to the north of our position. We held the Eldar off as they attempted a second attack and lost approximately 250 Volistadians, a minor price to pay in my opinion."
"After those engagements we reached Helios unmolested, boarded our craft and made orbit at the agreed time. We made our rendezvous with the Darknight's Pride and are preparing to enter the warp upon the successful transmission of this message."
"We should be back in Harsaded within 6 weeks."
"May Qunitara protect."
