Mmm...BBQ... sounds like a plan!

BTW, I didn't see inside the buildings last time I came... Is it all nice and clean and tidy inside? I'm planning to dress smartly for the evenings...

Yes is all pretty clean and tidy in the main accomodation block. You wouldn't want to eat you dinner off the floor or anything but it's ok.

There will be free tea and coffee available thought and an large hot water urn. There is limited power also for battery charging etc.

So don’t think I marched there for this reason – it could carry another name – but because there is a very important goal... this goal I wanted to take – and you know – we are very modest, we have it already."
Adolf Hitler, November 1942

"Comrades, Red Army men, commanders and political workers, men and women guerrillas! It is on your perseverance, staunchness, fighting skill and readiness to discharge your duty to the country that the defeat of the German-fascist army and the liberation of the Soviet land from the Hitlerite invaders depend! We can and must clear the Soviet land of Hitlerite vermin."
Joseph Stalin, November 1942

Good stuff... my British Officer Service Dress will have a run out then. Most of it is original WWII (or earlier). :)

Me too.

One thing that occurs to me is regarding use of braces. When wearing the Blue shirt and tie, with shoulder boards, did FJ still use braces. I've seen photos of lufty wearing belts (sometimes the leather belt not threaded through the belt loops) with their blue trousers and shirts, but never FJ with their jump trousers. Just a thought as it seems to look scruffy wearing a shirt and tie and shoulder boards with braces over the top?
RETIRED, thanks for some truly memorable times and great people

Good question, Ade - I don't know the answer, unfortunately. I will be wearing Fliegerbluse over the shirt & tie. :D

All depends on the weather. I'll do likewise if it is cold, but for warmer weather we are allowed to wear only the shirt and can be permitted to even discard the tie if it is really warm....so I will make sure I bring the fliegerbluse then :)

See you Friday

Good, I can leave the brew kit at home, one less thing to pack/worry about. Cuppa coffee and instant porridge for breakfast will be key to me lasting the day.

To the tune of "Mademoiselle from Armentières"

Napoleons army ran away, As you do
The guard stood firm for Frances Pride, As you do
They said the guard will stand and die
But we heard what their Colonel cried
It wasn't pretty I tell you.

Right, I'm heading for the site now. For the very early people, if there's no AGS sign up, then you've arrived before me, so you'll have to wait until I arrive to get in.
