Anyone keen to go to this game as the Highland Division?

I'll be booking on as soon as I'm paid; will be good to have a few familiar faces in the Black Watch for this one :good:

Sounds like a good excuse to buy a Tam O'Shanter

I had been considering this game if there's a decent bunch of chaps to be in a team with, without that the last Close Action one was, to me, a bit off

I presume we'll be toting P38s like the real chaps

I am considering coming to the game as British para. Dont have any gear at all at present but could make it an early Christmas present.
Gun will be a problem as I have only German guns. Maybe I can bring MG42 as captured gun.

I always bring spare guns, so a couple of "loan outs" is no problem, usual damage rules apply.

You can use my STEN buddy; I’ll have a rifle.

At this rate I might be tempted. I'll have to check my diary.

Sound like we have a nice little para section on the go. I'll bring the Bren gun so we have a bit of extra firepower. Anyone want to volunteer to be my number 2?

Ralph

Any recommendations how I can get minimum load out?

I thought about buying:
- beret or helmet
- denison smock (what version)
- basic webbing with ammo pouches

I would use my German trousers and boots.
How about gaitors? Germany version acceptable.

Anything else?
Thanks for your help chaps

The 2nd pattern was introduced in 1944 so would technically be better for late war game but I personally have the 1st pattern and prefer the wool cuffs. Stick with the half zip version either way.

Good Airborne-y things would be a toggle rope and a lightweight respirator bag but really as long as you have the beret/helmet and denison with the basic webbing set you'll be good.

Regards,

Ralph

Thanks Ralph.
I looked at various websites and it looks like the webbing comes in different colours.
Which one is better rather brown or green?
