Kit lending/borrowing for Op Sealion

Postby Steinlager » Thu Aug 19, 2010 8:44 am

As no one has started a kit lending thread yet I thought I'd start.

I've got nearly enough German gear to equip a mate of mine who's coming, but if anyone could lend him Y straps, helmet and a gasmask container, that would be great.

I've got a rash of Brit helmets to lend. A full BD set and webbing. No gaiters but some puttees. I've also a RAF service dress if anyone fancies being a downed F/SGT although its not really built for chucking yourself around fields.

I also have some leather gaiters and a 1903 pattern belt if anyone needs a hand donning as the homeguard.

Fremsley if you could bring any spare kit that you have inc the helmets, it will help for those modern airsofters that are coming in civve gear as farm hands etc, to have a tommy pot would be a big help. One or two of my modern lot are giving it a go, and one of them is bringing the big generator that we're using to power the hog roast girls. It's all swings and roundabouts :wink:
Speaking of which as the pig takes about 6 hours to cook and so will primarily be for the evening, the lasses are spit roasting chickens during the day and doing tasty chicken wrap type things. They will aslo be doing breakfasts from appx 7 am on both Saturday and Sunday :good:

Will do Jimbo.

Just remembered I have a No 4 (T) look alike if anyone wants to borrow it. Does anyone have a Webley/1911 that i can borrow to go with my RAMC officer loadout?

Oh yes and a spare denim BD blouse - I'll bring some lightweights to go with it so it may look the part.

“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
