Re: Strapping Guy

For me, I have the straps of my large pack only loop round the bottom of the helmet. It's never come loose or fallen out while on the march. I also have my blanket inside my large pack and then have my greatcoat between the helmet and the pack. Most likely incorrect, but I've no where else to keep it.

Re: Italy Loadout

For some reason having the buckles going forwards seems 'wrong'.... That's because it is wrong ;-) I once turned out for a parade at a reenactment event with my puttees on backwards. Luckily the rupert doing the inspectioin didn't notice.... :whistle: That moment when the rupert DOES notice. https:...

Re: starting out

Just to beat the already beaten dead horse into dust, wool BD, a Mk.II "Brodie, anklets and basic webbing is literally the basis for EVERYTHING in The British Army, after that as most people have stated... Get a new hat, probably a beret since they're cheaper than a helmet, but still. For me, I...

Re: Would you be interested in...

I'd certainly be interested... If I had KD that is. Since I focus all my attention on the ETO, I have nothing KD related, so I guess it all hinges on how easy it is to obtain a shirt and trousers in KD (Shorts are out of the question, I hate them and have never worn shorts since High School).

Re: Join the Poor Bloody Infantry - new allied group.

I support the aim of getting information together for a generic British and Commonwealth look. You can then co-ordinate for the events coming up. Decide which events you will start with. They priority could be for NW Europe, Italy or N Africa equipment. Wool BD though is actually appropriate for al...

Re: Join the Poor Bloody Infantry - new allied group.

Well, considering that with all of the Commonwealth countries being united under the use of the Mk.II helmet, maybe having a group name that is focused on that like The Battle Bowlers or The Brodie Bunch is the best step forward?

"The Battle Bowlers - Commonwealth Group" or some such?

Re: Join the Poor Bloody Infantry - new allied group.

I quite like "The Battle Bowlers" actually, originally I thought "Tommy Atkins" would be good but they're already a reenactment group :slap: Just another nickname for the Mk.II "Brodie" Helmet, sir. After all, the others have already suggested The Brodie Bunch and Tin ...

Re: Latest Acquisitions

How bad are the straps, can you still wear the bags on your chest or do they need extensive modification (not that I mind a bit or even a lot of sewing)? It is just that at 2.95ea..... Cheers Martin From what I've seen, they've pulled off the rings that would hold the strap and then shortened the s...

Re: Airborne Sidearm

My sidearm's the Cyma AEP M1911. I pulled the attachment for a lanyard off and then superglue it back into place with a Webley Lanyard, yet to actually see how it performs in battle, but I'll get the chance someday.

Re: Join the Poor Bloody Infantry - new allied group.

The Bulldogs
The Battle Bowlers
The Tommies

The last one sounds incredibly egotistical since my real name shortened is Tommy, but I guess those three work.

Re: Airsofters, can we achieve more than a film company?

Can't we have a turretless Chaffee commanded by Telly Savalas? Personally I think one of the best Airsoft films I've seen is BedsnHerts 'Hauptmann Horn' film. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&x-yt-ts=1421914688&v=oQme4EByHOQ&x-yt-cl=84503534 You don't needs tons of ...

Airsofters, can we achieve more than a film company?

After finishing 633 Squadron from 1964 and getting a headache from the amount of inconsistencies ranging from Land Rovers posing as jeeps, SS soldiers wearing the 1932 black uniform and armoured cars that were made 20 years after the war. I'm at the firm belief that we as airsofters with some cooper...
