Private battles WITH proper marshalls is well worth the effort.....proper tactics...real weapons that do go bang. Event battles are I agree pointless...theres often no room for manouvere no control as such and obviously no marshalls. Its just a circus show for the paying public!! Not to say I wont or havent done them.....but watching these event battles as a MOP knowing whats goin on can be quite embarrasing.....strange that lots of people only die when theyve run out of ammo!!!

So having been considering playing WW2 airsoft for a while I finally decided to really go for, with the encouragement of a mate who has a load of yank kit & the fact that 'the Hill' is not too far away so it will hopefully be a regular thing. I'm aiming to get an airborne loadout but only problem is, I wasn't going for a South Staffords look, do you think there'd be room for a Recce Corp member in the group?

Assuming I'd be better off posting this in the actual PBI forum I'll post this there too, sorry for the repetition guys :oops:

Query answered tactfully in the pbi section but the short answer here is no to recce corp unless you own a jeep or a bren carrier and want to bring it to games :)

Did you attest in 2000 by any chance? I was a 2509xxxx :)

You never forget that one.

We'll do you a new 40s service number but as an ex tom we can let you use the last five digits of your real one of you like?

great, I joined my local TA unit in Dec 1998, left in dec 2002 and joined the RAF, so went from Stab to Crab as my mates like to say, and am now in the Staffordshire area, originaly Royal Anglian, and proud of it.

Many thanks, not sure when I can get to a training day/PBI event as I spend most of my time deployed somewhere in the world, but will be back in time for the "Die Glocke" game, and around for the one in May.

Gadges last post on this thread was in 2009, I don't think PBI are particularly active as a group any more.

There are a fair number of new British players though, so perhaps it is something we could re-kindle or even start a new group? Maybe something similar to the Alte Hasen, more of a loose group of players who go to events together than one tied to a couple of particular impressions?

Cheers

PBI are active, they just don't airsoft.

There is a "new PBI" which is primarily about re-enacting. A few of the original members (including Gadge) still take part.

What Yith said and; The current PBI is mainly a Living History group. Only Gadge, McVickers and I take part in Airsoft and then not under an organised group.
Location is not always an issue. In its first form PBI had members from Portland to Huddersfield who discussed issues online and only actually met at events.

This sounds good to me, would be nice to see a generic Tommy equivalent to Alte Hasen, could possibly help to guide new members in the right direction in regards to kit and the like (well more than they already are), and help with organising people in regards to getting to games.
