US Infantry

Postby Wladek » Thu Jul 12, 2012 11:36 am

OK

I have just Talked to Chris and the 'Doughboys' will have a sector, so, if you have US infatry 'stuff' come along and join us.

We will have our HQ camp up, Telephone wires out, and be eating and sleeping 'in the field' - though you could go back to the other place it wanted.

So, in that regard, here are our 'starting rules' for joining us -

Any Khaki pup tent is fine - post war, french etc - if you are staying overnight in our camp (as is a hole with a sheet over it if you want).

Any mix of M43s, M41s, Wool Trousers, Buckle Boots and Leggings, Great coats, scarves and massive gloves - in fact try and mix it up, rather then imagining there is a 'late war m43/early war m41 dichotomy'. Eveyone should have an M1 Helmet.

Either unbadged, or badged as 9th Infantry Division.

As yet the following have expressed their desire to attend/already booked:

Wladek
Yith
Lipton
CHThree
Oligoscenic
Horus
Marsha
Headshot
Gunman Josh
Ed
Barrie & Anne
Universal Gunner
Pete 59
Django
DT
DT+1

So roll on up chaps, should be a damn good weekend. :good:

I'm giving this serious consideration, definately not up for sleeping in a slit trench :shock: and at the moment I've only got my 160lb tent which is probably over the top so if I go it'll be sleeping in the tented area on a camp bed.

Weapons wise if I can sort out the mag feed problems on my BAR I might give that an outing.

Will make a final decision closer to the time, main issue is going to be how much college work I've got on.
