Brits, your country needs YOU!

Postby Sgt.Heide » Mon Sep 05, 2011 9:47 am

Hello chaps, first off, thanks for booking in to this event, I'm looking forward to seeing lots of new faces and, giving you a taste of what CiA battles are all about. Secondly, if you could post up what weapon and kit you'll be using, it'll help with the formation of small squads on the day. Any other Brit' specific stuff, I will post up as I think of it.

I'll start off.... I am mostly wearing my Airborne kit (with helmet, not beret), with either an MP40 or a Sten as my weapon.

I'll be in hot weather European theatre Brit' scruffiness!

As the Brit' commander, I thought it best to tell you all that I won't be throwing away your lives needlessly (although I will throw your lives away if the situation dictates!). We will make progress by cautious recce', reporting and probing. Only when we know exactly what is ahead of us, will we be putting in any full on assaults. We will have mortar support to cover our advance and to make tatical use of smoke when required.

It is vital that you do not engage the enemy needlessly and, report back any contact or sightings of enemy forces and positions. PLEASE follow your orders and take heed of the game rules. If in doubt, ask!

From an "airsoft" point of view, this means don't go haring off after anything in German uniform for "trigger time", don't go lonewolfing and, most importantly, don't be a cock!

Perhaps we could have some volunteer runners to attach to patrols? (And no, that wasn't me volunteering)!

So I've just had a lesson in Para etiquette from my Dad, who was in the territorial Paras in the late 50's and I've learned a couple of things I didn't know, but they may be common knowledge.

Thing one is the battle cry of Wahoo Mohammed - which is actually well documented on the old internet but I never knew it before.

The second is a nice little costume addition which he says was definitely a post war trend but doesn't know if it was a wartime thing. Apparently it was a fashion to cut off the final white silk cord which was tacked to the parachute to deploy it and fasten it in a loop through the zip of your smock as a token of the jump. Some guys would have tons of them - kind of like the stupid big knots that schoolkids tie in their ties ! Whether this was a wartime thing he didn't know, but I'm reliably informed it was definitely a 50's thing so I imagine it didn't just spring from nowhere. I've looked at a few WW2 photos but can't see anything - but that's quite a small detail to be spotting.

The third thing was a very graphic description of leaping from a plane fully loaded plus Bren Gun to land on Otterburn range a bit to fast and wind up with a broken leg - I'll keep that one to myself.
