Hi, excuse the delay on these details - we're still trying to get the info from the UCAP guys.

However, I can't imagine it will be much different from Sevastopol, where people were arriving from late afternoon Friday onwards.

will the gate be closed and locked later on?

It will probably be pretty late on Friday that me and Dean arrive.

Right, looks like 3 of us coming by public transport, train to Greenhithe then cab to site. if current plans come to pass we should be there Friday night about 8:30 ish.

Any problems with the site owners regards a disposable BBQ for Friday night cooking? (other than the usual "NOT INSIDE" rule). Please say now so I can make alternative plans.

Will also be bringing a small meths stove for the morning cuppas/instant porridge.

Oh and when is the planned Game end on Saturday (I am assuming 5 or 6-ish)

To the tune of "Mademoiselle from Armentières"

Napoleons army ran away, As you do
The guard stood firm for Frances Pride, As you do
They said the guard will stand and die
But we heard what their Colonel cried
It wasn't pretty I tell you.

Disposable BBQ and stove are both absolutely fine mate, outside obviously. :good:

We expect endex to be about 6ish.

We can and must clear the Soviet land of Hitlerite vermin."

Thanks for that.
That means Fridays dinner will be easily sorted, filling and not pot noodles. :good:

Some of the UCAP guys will be onsite doing stuff on Friday, and it should be ok for people to turn up from 1pm onwards. If the gate is locked, there should be a number posted on it.

Mmm...BBQ... sounds like a plan!

BTW, I didn't see inside the buildings last time I came... Is it all nice and clean and tidy inside? I'm planning to dress smartly for the evenings...

Yes is all pretty clean and tidy in the main accomodation block. You wouldn't want to eat you dinner off the floor or anything but it's ok.

There will be free tea and coffee available thought and an large hot water urn. There is limited power also for battery charging etc.

Me too.

One thing that occurs to me is regarding use of braces. When wearing the Blue shirt and tie, with shoulder boards, did FJ still use braces. I've seen photos of lufty wearing belts (sometimes the leather belt not threaded through the belt loops) with their blue trousers and shirts, but never FJ with their jump trousers. Just a thought as it seems to look scruffy wearing a shirt and tie and shoulder boards with braces over the top?

RETIRED, thanks for some truly memorable times and great people

Good question, Ade - I don't know the answer, unfortunately. I will be wearing Fliegerbluse over the shirt & tie. :D

All depends on the weather. I'll do likewise if it is cold, but for warmer weather we are allowed to wear only the shirt and can be permitted to even discard the tie if it is really warm....so I will make sure I bring the fliegerbluse then :)

See you Friday

Good, I can leave the brew kit at home, one less thing to pack/worry about. Cuppa coffee and instant porridge for breakfast will be key to me lasting the day.

Right, I'm heading for the site now. For the very early people, if there's no AGS sign up, then you've arrived before me, so you'll have to wait until I arrive to get in.
