Thanks to the guys who supported the event. Everyone had a fun day and despite the allies being outnumbered they did a great job in defence.
Really enjoyed a day of section level infantry combat.
A great bunch of guys.

Very good day even with the low number. A highlight was when I came face to face with Russel in the command hq building in the pitch black and a stem pointing in my face :shock: . Really a great day and I hope in September I can bring my groups 223 and show the allies what real German armour is made of :D

A brilliant first WW2 airsoft experience!

Thank you seg for organising it and to everyone else for making it a great day :)

Yes, thanks for a good day out. We made the most of the numbers we had, and it played out very well. Good standards of play and no silliness, and nice ot meet soem new players, I hope to see you at more events in the future.

Many thanks to the heroic Allies and our dogged defence in the face of the unstoppable Nazi war machine! And thank you to our German opponents for not spraying us too much with MG42 fire. My ears are still ringing from the crow scarer which exploded on my boots though. :)

Cheers

What a great day! Thanks to Tony and everyone for making it fun with the numbers we had. It was nice to have some small squad actions going on. I think us Allies held up well against the German onslaught and gave as good as we got.
Regards,

Ralph

Hi many thanks from Mark and George Vickers just how i would like all my airsoft events to be,very friendly indeed.
Thanks to the people who offered to lend kit although we stuck with our own gear,and thanks for the kind comments on the FG42 that was its first outing and there were no problems,i will strip it down and finish if off
Look fo the Fg42 post in the gun section i will be adding more photos,there is more info on WW2airsoftproboards the american site,if you look in the Armoury,technical section
I will be back for sure,just dont tell my misses i was a Nazi i not sure if she knows yet or not,she may be getting suspicious.
SEG I upload my photos to photobucket,its got free storage space,when you have done that click on the image so it is almost half screen size on the right there are 4 boxes click on the one that says IMG ,IT will copy that web location,
then when posting click URL panel above where you are typing and press control and then V at the same time, the location for the photo will be uploaded,then preview your post to check it has worked
iF any body wants to contact me my web site is St George Armoury .co.uk
