I do appreciate the offer, though. Though, as a yank, you'd only lend me the uniform that had a feckin' great bullseye stencled on the back of it. :wink:


It's only fair. They'd never hit you otherwise.


Hey we not the Stormtroopers ! lol

and it was not a bullseye was a remote det :happyclap:

I'm hoping to be down there by five, but it depends when I can get away from work and on the many, many miles of Friday afternoon rush hour traffic in the rain, so who knows.

Putting tents up in the dark is OK as there isn't a blackout :) but it is very easy to lose things or discover you've put it on an ants nest and/or sharp tree root. We'll need to put them up well because it is going to pelt with rain tonight.

See you all this evening.

Cheers

I'll be there early Saturday morning, Eversley is only a 40min drive for me!
“I wanted to come to the Volga at a specific location at a specific city. By chance it carries the name of Stalin himself. 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
