So don’t think I marched there for this reason – it could carry another name – but because there is a very important goal... this goal I wanted to take – and you know – we are very modest, we have it already."

It is on your perseverance, staunchness, fighting skill and readiness to discharge your duty to the country that the defeat of the German-fascist army and the liberation of the Soviet land from the Hitlerite invaders depend! We can and must clear the Soviet land of Hitlerite vermin."

A quick note about Thompson's - they've changed the formulation. The old was kero based, the new is water based. If you've previously waterproofed zelts with the old formulation do not try and re-proof them with the new!

Oops, too late. :roll: I did mine with the old stinky stuff a long time ago, but the new stuff is brilliant. One 5-litre can does more than 10 Zelts.

Totally not airsoft but just back from a larp event (including mass battles)

I held my place in the shield wall despite some rather chafing armour and some vary scary/numerous opponents!

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.

Today I, (well Wednesday actually), got my permanent contract at work, which I knew was coming, what I didn't know was coming was a 40% pay increase :shock: so I'm currently in a very good mood :D

Why Sunday? That means you have to go to work tomorrow.

Today I am in charge of the entire marketing department office. Unfortunately its literally just the office I'm in charge of- I'm the only one here.... :slap:
