That is fine, let Steve have the spot, I'll stick with the Germans. The more players the merrier.

This is arguably the most motley British squad assembled for some time!

Haven't worn my windproofs yet. Are we going to be a rag tag collection of Brits that have some how made it to the combat area? Sort of like a magnificent 7 (or 6) of ww2
Regards,

Ralph

Whatever the consensus is. I haven't worn battle dress in ages. If the weather is pissing it down then wind proofs are advised; they're a cracking bit of kit. If it's just cold though you can't go wrong with battle dressmand a tasteful leather jerkin. ;)

Battledress and jerkin sounds good to me, I hope it's cold enough for the balaclava too!

I have a small skewer hidden in the collar of my jumping jacket, and a razorblade in my gaiter, as well as my knife.

It is always cold in January, which is great as you can load up on ridiculous warm clothing you wouldn't normally wear in a game. Last year I didn't take my gloves and balaclava off all day, but that is paper thin German stuff.

A wool shirt and BD has proved to be quite warm enough in the past, with a Denison on top turning the whole ensemble into the usual buckets of sweat experience.
