With ammo limits on the though or we'll have the germans up in arms!

Though that game is set in the third battle of Monte Cassino, this game is the fourth battle. :wink:

those chaps represented are, one assumes, from '2nd New Zealand Corps, comprising the New Zealand 2nd Division, the Indian 4th Division and the British 78th Division'.

given the association of the Lewis gun and those down under, I would assume they are New Zealanders pictured.

What terrible luck, this is just a month or 2 before my first trip back to England since I left in '93... :cry:

I shouldn't worry, I'm sure there'll be other events you can get to during that time!

At exactly 4.00 mins on that video - what has that soldier got on under his helmet?

I don't know either (Assuming Del doesn't actually think it is a pumpkin :wink: ).

A beret/GS pulled back with the helmet perched on top? :?

Well I'm up for this. Really nice to see a Polish theme being portrayed considering they were the 4th largest allied force after USA USSR and GB & Commonwealth. Can you let me have some details of cost etc?

Also as an aside - did anyone know that Brazil had a contingent fighting of the allied side in the Italian campaign?

Cheers

Good man. :good:

Details of cost etc is £25, 16th May, Ex-Site North Wales and booking will commence shortly. viewtopic.php?f=122&t=8489&start=0

In answer to the aside - I did. :giggle: Italy was a great mash of allied forces.

My dear transit camper failed its MOT so my marathon trip is now ongoing - sitting here on a Virgin train from Euston (after a train from worthing - then across Town on a 73 bus). May not get into Telford until very late and then I've got to sort me kit out and work out how on earth I get there tomorrow morning!
