Great site, great 34th organisation and great British Camaraderie. Thanks to all to make it a great day.

Lots and lots of highlights: Such as blowing up a garage with a firework..... Losing Steve behind the lines..... watching Alex suffer with PTSD and eat a chemical moth ball, abandoning Charlie, Alex and Gareth on a ravine under heavy fire, and the list goes on.

I will write up a British summary of the day and post later on.


Current Arsenal: ICS Grease Gun, ICS M1 Garand, MP40, Viva Arms Sten Mk2.

Thanks guys for an awesome weekend, we had a blast as usual. It was good to camp over and the atmosphere on the saturday night was great. Had some great battles and even got a kill with the Pak which was awesome( I think it was Randles, so thanks for taking it mate , It made the time and money spent worth it, cheers mate. Really enjoyed the Sunday battles and we even carried on after everyone had gone. we split the squad into two and carried on battling! It's always good to settle some scores with your mates after all of the trash talking! Thanks to ALL of the guys who played and especially the organisers. A german gas mask tin with a smoke grenade in was left behind so I grabbed it . let me know if it's yours.

we of the 34th shrug off Friendly fire as 30% of the days kills! Unlike you our C.O gunned down half our squad in a moment of psychotic madness...
But as i said, that's nothing unusual...

Phil survived the PAK kill via being in cover, mate. Medal of Honor award if ever I've seen one incidentally, held out for twenty minutes virtually on his own,

The twat who went flying after the TAG round landed three feet from him was me. ;)

AH ! so it was you Gareth!! even better . we fired another round right onto the bridge where Phil was but it failed to go off!! those Tag Rounds are funny as hell but expensive. Granger , Major Dave was the FJ officer, Matt was the SS officer. we would have been fine if Matt was firing the gun . Dave is always blowing us up...... and I get blamed for it.

As many have mentioned thanks to the organisers for a great weekend. Great to see familiar faces again . Played both days as my decrepid body can attest to . Humping the MG34 around didnt help but its performance outweighed the incumberance of its size and weight. I am sure some of the allies will be glad its safely packed away now . My favourite highlight of the game was getting into the Allied lines at the end of day 1, crawling for ages through the triffids, shooting at least 3 before bursting out of my triffid patch for my suicide charge into a hail of fire. The apologies from the US bloke who lit up my face was not needed as 'shit happens'

It was me that shot you in the face as you charged towards us but it's only natural to apologise it's not nice to take one in the mush.

But it was a bloody brave run from you, you must have spent ages creeping up on us we didn't even know you was there until you came charging out the bush 3 metres in front of us

Big thanks to Chris for all his hard work writing, printing, organising and sorting out all the other behind the scenes shenanigans :D

Thank you to tin for all his running around and the props he's spent time building :D

Not forgetting all the 34th for setting all the props up and getting them back on Sunday.

What a fantastic weekend enjoyed every minute of it except Friday night in my tent next time I will listen to the good wife and take a sleeping bag

Well what can I say?

Only managed to make the Saturday but it was amazing!

Had a few sneaky missions to ease the squad in, then as the day went on ended up in some really intense fire fights.

The final bridge attack was a great finish to the day.

As always came away with some great memories you can't get anywhere.

Where else can you roll out the detonator wire under fire and push the det plunger to blow up a dam!

Many thanks to all those involved, the organisation, the props, the missions, the supplies the list goes on.

Great immersive team work always makes a good day!

Yep it took ages especially as I knew you were so close. Took time as I had to crawl under and over the branches snapping the smaller ones to make a path, trying to be quiet all the way. I shot a couple to the right of your position in the legs because thats all I could see about 10 mins before I shot your mate which forced my hand. I knew what was about to come and come it did lol. Like I said shit happens and given that I was floundering through the triffids anyway only added to my hollywood style death performance
