Troop Types
UNIFORMS- Please try and research your kit and make the best impression you can it really enhances the event people talking beforehand and kitting up together.
If you don`t have some kit ask. There is a lot of kit out there which people will lend.

We are not asking for Re-enactor standard although a lot of you will endeavor to achieve such a look.

Helmets – For this event We require British and German troops to wear a helmet. If you don`t have one please contact organisers and we will source one for you.

We are doing Generic Infantry. If you go in the Lend Lease section someone may be able to lend a Tunic or you could use a IOnfantry short smock or what would be appropriate only a shirt (Its June hot fingers crossed) with a Zelt over the top.

hopefully i will get the rear sight next week to finish off my original K98 /vsr conversion.
The guy a couple of posts above has offered the loan of smocks in Heer type camouflage,but my interpretation of the rules for uniform prohibits these as much as my Splinter B jump smock?Have i read this correctly?
The image above from the Osprey book shows a camoulflage smock, is this allowed ,or is it Tunic in grey wool only

We would prefer Tunics but want to encourage people to attend so you can wear a Heer Splinter smock and infantry helmet. We just want generic infantry not Fallschirm jaeger or SS . Does that help? Looking forward to you attending.

Hope this current situation clears up so we can make sure the Tommie's dont take an inch of the Reich !
