Anyone thinking of going to Operation Nordwind? I'm thinking I might go as a commando. Denison, green beret and Thompson.
Not me I'm afraid.

Yep i guess 3 or 4 of us from our posse
Booking is open for this game now. I'm sorely tempted to book on as a commando rather than French.
Possibly,it would be commando for me as well.
Commando places are all gone I'm afraid chaps so you'll have to book in as free French. Plus side is Fremsley's going to be providing you all with arm bands
What he said...Yep just need to get an idea of numbers of FFI as opposed to Amerikaners. It'll be a nice little keepsake for you all.
I'm a hero with coward's legs.
So, are we portraying a particular commando unit or just generic commando impression?
Looking forward to the outing of the new Denison Smock.
Got bits and pieces for a French setup too, if anyone needs ideas check out the French Reenactment Group on Facebook, most of it is a mix of US gear but it's pretty good at showing what a mix/match their kit is.

SnS SMLE, SnS No.4, ASG Sten gun, King Arms M1928A1, Projector Infantry Anti Tank, MkII 2" Mortar, Vickers .303
Generic commandos Granger, I'm not wanting people to get too hung up on kit, I'd rather they had a good game
OK, I've been wanting to wear my leather jerkin for a while so this sounds like the perfect excuse.
Yank/FFI it is then,don't mind which.
