Lend/Lease

Postby spiers » Tue Mar 03, 2009 9:00 pm

Got a mate who's interested in coming, looking for some US Kit which he could borrow...
Preferably some M42's but I'm not picky...and corcorans...and an M1 Helmet.

He's a reliable and respectful guy, kit would be in safe hands and I wouldn't ask if I didn't think it would be return in the same condition it was lent in (Maybe a bit muddier).

EDIT: Could also do with some basic webbing if anyone has any.

Doughboy pack would be good mate, he'll be wearing an M41 so it'll look good. Will have to remember who to give all this back now!
Thanks again!

I have German flags, One nazi battle flag which some might not like because of the swastika, so I also have a Kriegsmarine (knights cross on red background) and a WW1 Kaiser Willhelm flag with the big eagles crest on it. They are all repro and all unmistakenly Axis. Also have a skull and crossbones and a couple of Georges Cross. Will stick them in the kitbag :good:

Bring the battle flag mate, Dog Co. could do with one for a couple of photos we're taking. If that's ok with you?
