Now in its new home.
We still have work to do on it, like lining the inside with ply and adding window sills to protect our lovely guns. We then need to add to the surroundings, but we have plans..... It is playable though.

The guys did a fantastic job of recreating it.

Great. I fought endlessly over that with Airfix Commando and German figures using the old Paragon skirmish rules.

In other news of new things: I recently acquired pair of artillery Leutnant shoulderboards for Vierville.

Been picking up stacks of Fallschrimjager kit to replace the heer/ss stuff I used to mix and match. Got myself a nice Underwood smock, seems to be a smoother material than my old Sturm one and the snaps seem a lot firmer.
Also got myself a gorgeous pair of Polish made low boots. I'm still on the lookout for jump boots in my size but these will do for garrison and late war use and I can use them for my ss kit.

A tan 43 or 44 dated (stamp a little unclear) commando bergen, been after one for ages. It came with a British army wool blanket, with 3 black stripes down the middle.

The bergen is very comfy to wear, I think I might use it as a general backpack if the need arises. Apart form 3 little holes (no bigger than an inch), a couple of small seam splits and a little bit of grubbiness, it's in very good condition. All the straps are present, in good order and complete. Very, very chuffed with it. :D

I use my Bergen all the time, all my camping stuff fits neatly into it, and yes, it is very comfortable.

I can definitely see why they were so popular with scouts and other outdoorsy types after the war!

I've bought a lot recently, but I keep forgetting to post up....

Very recent purchaces include:
Panther Store British '37patt BD blouse, fits me perfectly, second hand but like new as only worn twice - £80

Purchaces today:
British '07patt bayonet, WW1 dated, Wilkinson made, in very nice condition, with fantastic condition WW1 dated scabbard. Always wanted one, but only if nice and at a good price - finally this one turned up - £50
British 3.7-inch mountain howitzer cartridge casing - 1940 dated in really good condition with clear stampings - bit of a random item, but I've always loved the 3.7-inch mountain guns so have been on the lookout for these cartridges for quite some while now, but they're rather rare - £18
Three British '03patt leather belts, all look of the same era, with two of them being maker, size (M), and date (1944) stamped! - £6.50 each

These little beauties arrived this morning from Germany, full of birch seeds!. I'm hoping to restore them to wear, although they seem in very good nick for their age, stitching's not rotted and soles are good. I think they probably are genuine late war officers boots. They seem like a 2 piece construction. leather lined inside with wooden pegged thick leather soles and correct toe and heel plates. Hopefully one of you more knowledgeable chaps might be able to enlighten me. I paid £26.80 plus postage. They are to fit 41 size, so that might be why I managed to get them for such a good price.

My telogreika padded jacket arrived today. Very nice and warm, it'll do nicely for Rattenkreig.
Regards,

Ralph
