Applied polish and boiled linseed oil to my boots - the latter on the soles, fyi. Applied Ko Cho Line and polish to my belt, and Y-straps. Also Ko Cho Line'd (is it a verb?) my tornister, since it hadn't been done for a long time, and the leatherwork on my original breadbag. Removed the Landstorm Nederland collar tab (from rifles game about 2 years ago!) and put the runes back on. Dug out the planetree smock I bought about 2 years ago, but have never yet worn! Almost ready to rock! :D

Its quite tempting at these games where any allied or axis uniform is permitted to use the rarely used kit ,its a pity that tropical is just wrong for the bulge .

Had a weekend of tinkering with kit and getting a couple of patches sown on. All set, just now need to decide what combination of wool, peadot and/or blurred edge to wear come Saturday! Going on the pictures from the Bulge it looks like wools and peadot was a common selection but its always good to have a choice isnt it? :D

A little rain never spoilt the day, adds to the realism. :D wet weather gear advisable, Alright for the Allies they are on the back foot and using some buildings in the woods for cover until the Germans clear them out and push them back to St Vith

How much more can you get motivated? Clear the enemy out of the building so you can be in a dry place :D

I also have a mortar but no ammunition. Do we need another one or do you have enough mortars?

Hi Lutz there are mortar shells for sale on the day if you want to bring your one, I have 3 mainly for the barrage at the start and the attack on St Vith.
