I do miss Boshman's nun-with-gun avatar. And Bedsnherts Fallschirmjäger-disguised-as-nun.

Just for you then Andy! :lol:
“I wanted to come to the Volga at a specific location at a specific city. By chance it carries the name of Stalin himself. 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."
Adolf Hitler, November 1942

"Comrades, Red Army men, commanders and political workers, men and women guerrillas! 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."
Joseph Stalin, November 1942

What's the FPS limits Jimbo? Trying to decide if it's worth bringing the MG42 along for a shakedown! It's shooting around 345fps.

If only the Ford boys would bring the Vickers and the Lewis - now that would be fun! BTW - Are any of the pics from last sunday been put up anywhere Jimbo old bean?

If any of them are coming i can bring along the spare BD jacket and tousers i have that they can borrow - its not in our slipped chest size so should fit the normal sized ones.

As Arthur Smith said : 'The thing that most annoys me about young people is that I'm not one of them!'

You wont get the Ford team away from home before the event fella, they're even putting in extra training so their support gun crews work well together. That Vickers needs connecting up to the water can before it can fire, that's the rod you make for your back when you make a water cooled weapon.

Looking forward to seeing that MG42 in action. I've only played one game up against a support weapon, some yank thing with a box on the side, and try as I might I just couldn't get anywhere near it. It was in a defensive role, so I'll be interested to see how it works in an offensive role.
