Just thinking ahead: is this a separate mission-based event, or a rolling event ?

You list the following fractions:
1 Norwegian SOE agent - £35
14 Royal Engineers - £35 per place
14 German Guards (SS/Heer) - £35 per place
8 Civilian Staff (unarmed and scripted) - £15
4 German Engineers - (armed and partially scripted) - £25
4 Scientists- (lightly armed and partially scripted) - £25


In the booking thread there are no Civilian Staff mentioned. Is this side full or are all 8 places still available?

Hi Snake, I'm not one of the organisers, so I'm not exactly sure (although I will be attending this event), but I was under the impression that the 4 scientists and the 4 engineers made up the 8 civilians. In which case, there is one engineer position still available, along with more British or German troops.

You'll have to wait for a PBI organiser for the definitive answer.

That's exactly the case Andy, it was a partial error in writing it, but yes, there were 8 civvy roles in total, of which 7 are taken, so there's one role left.

Portsmouth will be the nearest station - it's only a few minutes' drive away. A number of guys will be sleeping onsite Saturday night, so if you want to join in the social, just bring what you want to sleep in (and on). I'm sure someone will pick you up from the station if you ask on here.

Not sure. Use www.nationalrail.co.uk to find out which one is nearest the site.

I would think the nearest rail station is Portchester, slightly south west of UCAP.
