Speedloader question: I now have a Garand but only one mag for it. Would it be ok to reload it in-battle with a speedloader? That process is considerably slower than simply swapping mags, so is no advantage, and also reduces the possibility of introducing debris into the rifle as a result of hand-feeding rounds into the mag with muddy hands.

TIA. :)

Siggi, I have a couple of garand mags in the lost property box left over from Nordwind. As no one has claimed them yet, I don't see any reason why you can't borrow them if it helps.

I thought you were coming as a MG team??? Is this not so now as I have other people who want to use a MG and you are currently taking the spot??

Was my MG-assistant to be unarmed?

The point is now moot however.

Just to let you all know, my 3rd baby is due on the 20th of May so I apologise in advance if I cancel at the last minute or have to disappear quickly halfway through the day.

Chances are it'll be OK but you never know with these things, baby might want to come out early. Hopefully baby will be coming with me to a ww2 game in some 14 years time :lol:
Regards,

Ralph

Firstly, Congrats to Granger on the 3rd baby! (mine is now 8 months old...)

My question is; Will we be taking lunch into the field with us, or is there a lunch break planned?

We will be taking lunch into the field but it can be left at fixed bases for both sides so no lugging stuff around. Lunch will be taken at the base. :good:
