The Kit loan thread.

Postby Sgt.Heide » Fri Jul 09, 2010 3:57 pm

Please post here if you have any kit you're willing to loan to fellow players, or, if you need to borrow kit for the event.

*CiA take no responsibility for damage to, or loss of any kit loaned out.*

I'll kick things off with things I have to loan (bend it, mend it, naturally!).

U.S M41 jacket, 44" chest
U.S mustard wool trousers, 34-35" waist.
U.S Pistol belt, with waterbottle and aid pouch.
U.S GP ammo bag.
U.S leggings, size 3R.
U.S Roughout boots, size 9.

Basically, an almost complete Glider infantry loadout!

Sarj, that sounds great and all just about my size down to boots too! I'd be most greatful if I could borrow your gear on a " break it buy it" deal! If that's ok with you. What helmet/head gear would be needed to finish the look? And I know it's a huge ask to your community but I'd need a weapon too! Talk about a nerve eh!? Thanks to any who can help!

No problemo, I'll bring it along for you. You need an M1 helmet and that's it (SOF sell post war ones for £20 if noone has a spare). I'm sure someone will have a weapon that you can use too.

I have a spare M1 helmet. It has a regular infantry chinstrap rather than an airborne one though

It's the only bit of yank kit I own.

Still had no offers for the loan of a weapon, can any one help me out? I've been kitted out most generously but don't fancy tackling a kruat para bare handed! Any offers would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

I may have my MP40 available. Again, on a "bend it, mend it" basis. I'll let you know nearer the day.

Have you got yourself into training yet then Johnny? Sorted yourself out with any kit - was your brother any help?

I have an MP40 I can loan out with ammo pouches and six mags. It does only have the rubbish original battery so would some kind soul mind bringing a spare or two in case of the thing going flat?
I guess PvtJohnny has first dibs on it. :good:
If I can't make the game (there is talk of my attending an evening of Argintine Tango) I'll send it up with Yith or somebody.

Damn, I would say this would cover both bases for you, but we only engage in Brazilian Tango at these events. :slap:
