Looks like I'll have a Shoot and Scoot SMLE up for grabs on the day, having just bagged it off a mate. Only trouble being I've only two mags for it , if anyone fancies it they may wish to beg and borrow a few extra mags off someone else
I've fired a bullet on every continent. Nearly hit someone, too.

If anyone needs me to bring anything specific, let me know. It looks like I may be arriving by train and bicycle so will have limited space.
At the moment I assume webbing is covered so will try to bring the Sten, anklets, battledress trousers and Denison (less risk of a Denison not fitting someone). I tend to carry a resin helmet on my backpack even if I'm wearing the slouch hat so that can work as a loan helmet in a pinch (as long as those damn yanks promise not to accidentally shoot me in the back).

I have pretty much a full German Heer outfit to offer including webbing...but no bread bag.

Hi all , the MP44 that Tony is using recently started playing up, but I think its fixed now, famous last words does anyone have a spare weapon on the day if it goes down, if anyone does that's cool , better to be safe than sorry

Cheers Phil

Guys I may have messed up. I've just got a full waffen SS uniform, have ordered a Luger which should be here in the next couple of days, but the MG42 was ordered much later and may not get here in time. There's a good chance it will, but if not can someone prepare to lend me a German weapon? MP40 or STG44 (or MP44, whichever you prefer) would be great, but a captured weapon would work too. If the MG42 gets here I'll post again telling you not to worry, but if one of you could be ready to spare something it'd be much appreciated, cheers

If you were in the FJ we were looking for a second on the Zib but your in the SS sorry .we a re probably using the flak 38 for base defence ,your welcome to pitch in with it .

Give me a big enough hammer and a place to stand and I could fix the world.
i'll kill a man in a fair fight or if i think he's going to start a fair fight or over a woman or.......
a problem shared is a problem halved ,but an advantage shared is no advantage at all
if a job's not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well

I'll bring my sling along for you to borrow.
