Looking at the number of players we have booked in as Waffen SS, is it worth a try to get everyone to play as Waffen SS? I'm sure there are enough of us who have a spare smock/helmet cover/pea dots/ cap, etc to loan out to anyone who needs them. Just imagine what 25 - 30 players decked out in the same gear would look like! :good: A damned sight better than all of the disjointed allied uniforms. :ghey: A heer or lufty tunic wouldn't matter, as the smock would cover it. The rest of the uniform is the same anyway.

I appreciate that some may not want to do Waffen SS, it's just an idea (suggested by a couple of others, as well as me).

Nah, ya need some FJ as well, after all, they were scattered pretty much *everywhere* during that particular ill-fated drop, which actually assisted the Germans as the Allies thought there were far more FJ around than there actually was due to having been dropped pretty much everywhere.

That's fair enough, it was just a thought.

Plenty of FJ in the area as yes, while there was a botched drop, 6 Armee had 3. Fallschirm-Jager Div, pulled in from refitting in Holland - at least three regiments took part. Rebuilt after losses in Saint-Lo and Falaise pocket in contained many Luftwaffe ground personnel with no experience of fighting as infantry.

So, just like all the British 6th Airborne, US 101st and 82nd fighting in the Bulge, most of the Fallschirm went into battle in trucks. No 'planes or parachutes!

Oh, thats fecking settled it. I'm DEFINITELY coming as a medic now.

Chuck me in a River? Try it. Just make sure you have good dental insurance. I dare say that a Jerry entrenching tool will take most of your teeth out :twisted:

Plenty of time yet - I expect a few more bookings once pay cheques are in the bank, then a full month for those people who couldn't commit the date so early.

Still, if you know of peeps who might be interested then by all means give them a nudge. I always assume everyone who does WW2 knows about the forum and web site but of course many chaps don't have/do interweb stuff!

Believe me, you drop me in a river when I'm drunk, i'll be out of it in seconds - fully sober.................and looking for REVENGE!!!!! :twisted:

Suppose I better add the following to my kitlist then:

1 x Axe
1 x 500ml bottle of Chloroform (I have gallons of it at work. You have been warned ;) )
1 x Shovel
2 x Rolls of bin bags
1 x Pair secateurs
1 x Bow saw.
2 x Cast iron alibi's

That should do it...
