Blown up a bit? Damn I had another grenade too. We were going to come in a drag you out, but I did think you would have confused and scared as it was not meant to happen.

Anyway, now we know the next game. A commando raid somewhere in the Bavarian mountains.

What a weekend! I've never travelled so far to a site, 6 hours including the refuel stop! but the journey was well worth it.
Taffy, many thanks to you and your team for the excellent hospitality, I'll have to up the ante if you guys come down south to visit us ;)
It was a fantastic site with stunning views, vast rolling countyside with massive rocky outcrops, the like of which I've never seen before.
It was great to meet a lot of the guys that Ive chatted to on the forums and actually put faces to names. Del's Axis catering uniform was a scream and would terrify that Marco Pierre White fella :rofl:
Thanks very much to the armoured divison for your support, and thanks most of all to Niel and Jeremy for the lift, without you guys I'd never have been able to attend the event. :good:

Taffy!

great to see you again mate, you and Spiers did a great job, realy enjoyed using our old walkie talkies and making plans work in the field.
allways great to play with our favourite adversaries (16th ss) top blokes with great kit and a real true enjopyment of playing! see you at war and piece lads!!

all the crew did a great job, hope Alex's ear gets sorted it was one hell of a hole through it, we enjoyed playing as the filthy 13 though it seems to have confused chommers (scary make up? :rofl: )
we all had a very enjoyable game and want to thank all of the players who came to chat in the eves too, mainly axis players!
look forward to another of Taffy/Spiers productions :good:

Glad you all had a good game (and good weather). Makes me even more gutted that I had to miss out on this one. The 222 looks fantastic, as do the rest of the German side.

Thanks to taff and alex for laying this game on. Always up for some mountain yomping wearing and indeed carrying far too much kit (see weary pic of me with .30 link, tripod, 30 cal and m1 carbine in hand) weather was lovely, although i dont think i took on enough water on the saturday! Thanks to all players, was a shame that some of the germans coulxnt have made it that were booked on! :( *epic fail*
Glad i managed to zero my carbine on saturday night, bb in line with the front iron sight post at 50m will do me just fine! :)
Was fun krauting it up on sunday too, got to play alongside many players that i dont normally get chance too! Thanks to forrester and chomley for use of kit :good:

Well what can i say first time i've been to a WW2 re-enactment day and it was absolutely fantastic, fantastic weekend and a really good way to have celebrated my birthday!! the weather was incredible!! Thought the vehichles were awesome if not at times a pain for us airborne but oh well!! But would like to thank everyone for making it a quality weekend met some great guys who all played extremely well on both sides especially the bloke that shot me in the neck with a luger ;) cheers mate cracking shot haha!! It is definitely something i would do again without a doubt and would like to thank John who as usual provides the best of the best and Johns wife for the great chili :)

Thanks to everyone (esp site crew) for a great weekend. I think my favourite moment was when Webby playing as a Yank captured the Sdz 222 armed only with a pistol :rofl:
