The Germans at St. Nazaire

Postby BedsnHerts » Sun May 20, 2012 4:38 pm

There seems to have been a bit of confusion over the German role a this event.

The troops who engaged the Commandos at St. Nazaire were a mixed bunch and our scenario has taken that into account. If you want to go German you can choose between five (count 'em) stylish impressions:

German Heer - The port's garrison was made up of rank and file infantry troops, so normal feldgrau, nothing fancy

Coastal Defence - Heer for those who like to tinker. Basic feldgrau tunic but with naval buttons, buckles and insignia

U-Boat Crew - If you have a set of Brit denims then you have the basis for this impression. Insignia was a mish-mash. Sometimes no insignia, sometimes KM shoulderboards with metal or cloth breast eagles. Add a sidecap and Bob's your uncle.

Ship' Crew - Summer or winter cotton uniforms with tally cap. Most items can be had from Epic Militaria for less than £20

Naval Infantry - One for the obsessive compulsives. Blue/black woolen trews with double buttoned tunics and associated bling.

As always, most things that you might not have can probably be borrowed via the Kit Pic thread.

We're limiting ourselves to the assault undertaken by the shore party as we don't have any boats :D
