I'm 2IC on the Brit side for this one, so anything you don't have, i can probably lend you, if Gunman don't have anything spare to lend out.

Really, all you'd need beyond what you're getting is helmet, belt, breadbag, mp40 pouches and a water bottle.

most of these tents are two man, so there should be someone willing to accomodate me.

They can be a bit, erm, 'snug' though, once you've got two people's kit in there as well! :wink:

If you have a look on ebay, you can get one for less than £20 posted.

Sigsy I have a French Army two man tent that you can have for free. I'll bring it on the Friday for you. It's military canvas so you can use it "In game" at any event. It was given to me but I'm too old to fit into such a small space, so you can have it. Believe me you wouldn't want to share a confined space with any of us snoring farting old gits :wink:

If you want to 'period camp' it, then I can easily bring along a second WW2 dated Brit' tent (both of my tents are kept in the same tentbag, so both usually come along with me anyways!). All you need to do is bring along a groundsheet/two gascapes/a square of tarp as they don't have them "built in" and I only have enough groundsheet for one tent at the moment.
