its almost on the way to the wotan game, me paul and phil, are going to visit on saterday afternnon on the way down.

IN FULL PANZER UNIFORM OF COURSE :lol: (coat over the top to get in, then when we get to the panzer, "coats off")

i fully intend to jackboot round the tigers like i own them :lol:

pauls idea is, if anyone comes, to freeze like a statue, and pretend to be in the exhibit.

i spent most weekends in here during my year of basic training, its a great museum, well worth a visit

If you tell them who and what you are you may even get the cost of getting in cut as people will be able to get pics of tanks with "REAL" crews.

I beleive tony phoned the other day and they didnt seem interseted in speaking to him. they fobbed him off saying someone would call him back. Dunno what he said to em, but might be worth a try again if we get more people interested.

If anyone has an 'in' it might be a good idea to get them to call. Personally I don't like turning up in kit at things like this. The only times I'd wear kit would be as part of a reenactment group as part of a relevant and specific event.

I think if I told what I am they'd get offended at me swearing and throw me out :shock: . Thats if I am what people say I am anyway.

FYI, it's approximately 80-90 miles from Portsmouth!

I may be up for this - but definitely in civvies.

well, it looks like we've got ourselves a little motley crew here. Think they definatley need another call to sort out some discount nearer the time.

Smashing. :D

Well, the discount they do is if you gift aid your entry fee, you get a free year of admission.
