Spent last night working out how many layers I can fit under my USMC fatigues...I bought big so a fair few is the answer!

Hopefully, once we're all moving around we won't notice it.

All ready now so i'm at a steady 9 and counting!

Just had a run around the garden with my tabi shoes. They're... A bit more waterproof than I thought and I'm sure I can make them work tomorrow. Maybe I'll bring my DMS boots too just in case.

I am sure it will be fine, the ground will just be a bit wet. I'll definately be wearing a wool undershirt though.

Sheffield has actual snow forecast, which always make sit entertaining getting up the hills so I'll set off a bit earlier.

Cheers

It'll be fine, even if it pisses it down the site's quite sheltered and you'll soon warm up, especially with last ditch Banzai charges (fast shuffles).

See I've said that now and it'll be -10. :slap:

Do the Japs get sake in place of coffee? That would warm us up and make for some interesting banzai charges :lol:
