Yeah, hard to tell on the wetness this far ahead but cloudy and 18-21 degrees suits me fine.

Well aside from a few days to do at work, I'm feeling very much ready for this weekend now. I wasn't looking forward to it being a blazing hot day either, so will be bringing ample water and also a few sugary drinks (just in case in do get dehydrated!). Roll on Saturday! :D

Kar 98 still stuck in customs for at least another 20 days + but have borrowed an mp 40 and dialed up the exitometer to 11! :)
Wake up there, Muttley, you're dreaming again!
You're not Robin Hood and you're not Gunga Din.
You're not a brave knight or a king who's been crowned;
You're just plain old Muttley, the snickering hound!

I am now somewhat miffed. I thought Monday 4th was a bank holiday and have just spotted the small print. I have had more than enough of Scotland now. :evil:

Yes, bloody Google calendar has been confusing me for months.

Excitement building now, Mkii helmet painted from sand to mid bronze green, boots slavered in dubbin, fingers crossed the comando insignia I forgot turns up before the weekend. Looking forward to meeting Miss Shelton.

Like the depth needle in "Das Boot", mine has been stuck below the lowest scale, due to stuff. However, I've started getting my kit and Y-strap levels sorted this afternoon - the needle is quivering!

I've decided to wear some kit I've not worn (or had the chance to wear) for ages: my M43 service shirt and my wonderful old HBTs!

BTW, I have a spare old pair of HBT trousers - good condition, waist up to about 35" - £10 only. Also, I have a commando Bergen - I believe it's wartime dated (not sure to determine this). I will sell at whatever you think is a reasonable price. If anyone is interested in either item, PM me.

Hmmm, I'll take those trousers off you if they fit. Kannst du mitbringen?

Jawohl. :good: Best worn with braces, obviously.

I find it difficult to build excitement for a game these days but, I am "quietly expectant" for this, because we've jumped through some real hoops to make it happen and had to overcome a lot of adversity and negativity along the way. Bring it on!

Currently about a -12, seeing as the ulcer on the bottom of my right foot isn't clearing up with antibiotics, so it's looking like I'm going to be unlikely to even drive there, let alone take part. :x :cry:

I just about managed to get the soft top on the lightweight though, just in case it clears up just enough so I can make it. Pretty much everything's crossed at the moment.

Curse my lack of foot-healing knowledge. I wanna help you be present, but I am totally useless here.

Going to sound a bit odd but trying times and all, well have you tried warm honey? Eaten and lathered on the ulcer, I'm biased sure being a bee keeper but its massively helped with burns, blisters and sores in the past and has been used for the like for the past 4000 years or so :-D really hope it clears up for you!
