You should be an officer!

Thats acceptable behaviour if you have pips.

with running around being a medic alot of the day I picked the layout up pretty fast. plus im fairly good with maps anyway. what did confuse me was when I was trying to describe to chom where the ammo room was only to find the dead ends werent marked on the map heh

"its a 3 dead end room with 1 door in." "where is it, there isnt a room like that on the map" "uhhh there... i think."

Helga - thanks for your kind comments

Although I'm claustrophobic, I'm not too scared of the dark so charging off on my own down the tunnels to 'get' the Germans wasn't a major problem for me. What I was heading into (probable instant bb death) was!!!

It was just that bloomin' smoke that freaked me out. It's that dread feeling of being totally enclosed and trapped. For god's sake, Barrie had to stand outside the portaloo on guard because I daren't lock the door in case I got locked in!!! (I can't use lifts or phone boxes either)

Anyway, enough about that. The whole day was great fun so no worries.

Indeed I'd wondered why Barry was loitering at times near the loo, thinking he could if he was busting just have ran to a bush (lot easier for these men folk :roll: )

My brothers a complete claustrophobe and he freaked at an email of pics, The only thing that scared me :oops: and may amuse some of you, I heard Gadge giggling at me :oops: was the repulsion I felt due to my foot phobia on sunday (thankfully not in the tunnels) and had to run away squeeling that Lewis had his plates of meat out, they physically made my stomach turn :oops: it wasn't nice :oops: :oops: (sorry Lewis they ain't, they're nasty orrible feet and should be covered at all times :lol: :oops: )

:lol: I will try not to mention the S word :waggle:
However dry ice stays low and would have given it all a great effect without the bad visibility and health issues.
They use it quite a lot on Most Haunted etc.

Just wanted to put this as a suggestion to the UCAP guys.

Nice idea but dry ice would cover up all those nasty trip hazards.

Yes I thought about taking my helmet but the one I have is a nice genuine WW2 so didn't want to put big dents in it hence went for the cap and dents in head :?
Extra padding required next time!

i managed all day without hitting my head once, even when running, and im over 6 ft

but walking out of the bunker, after the visit up the stairs right at the end of the day, i banged my head :roll:

no damage done , as my heads probably denser than the steel beam i bumped

My tommy helmet is original WW2 (as I suspect is everyone else's)... It didn't get a scratch...

These old helmets are tougher than you think!
