Was hoping to go as british airborne, but think they weren't around in this action!? However, could go commando (oooerr missus)! 3 commando were involved weren't they? I know this games a bit more relaxed re kit but thought I'd ask!

The operation began with a Commando raid, so, go for it if you want John. However, Brit airborne is ok for this too, as we're trying to be a bit more inclusive, to get players without multiple loadouts involved.

Since our recent reshuffle most of our games will be more relaxed in terms of kit :good: . Plenty of good kit out there gathering dust unused, we are hoping we can give it excuses to get out and dirty !

We have at least 3 of the British contingent (me, John Birchett and Roland who hasn't been to a CiA event yet) who can do commando, regular infantry or airborne - we are easy so if we want to present a uniform look we probably can. I'm not desperate to badge kit up properly, but we can at least align on the major points. Lets face it, British kit isn't that sophisticated. Chose Denison or battledress and pick a hat style and colour. Beyond that it's stitch counting in my book (JOKE !!!!!!).

Yes, a drum mag is fine, as long as it's only loaded to the stated ammo limit (which may be less than 600 rounds, by the way).

Happens to us all, although my wife is used to me clumping around the house trying out uniforms, I still find it less hassle when she is out and about. This weekends blancoing activity produced looks of utter bafflement though.
