Splendid event. The less intense morning did work well, gave some of us time to get rid of our hangovers 8) and helped to build up the atmosphere.

High point - Have to say thank you to all those involved with the final "suicide" assault on the Church. Split into two sections, got to the engagement very quickly and kept the enemy occupied as ordered, all with military precision.
Arizona Smith, Award yourself some Bling. Did not realise you had travelled from France to take part! You fought well keeping the right flank in tact. I think most of you were still active when the recall siren sounded. Kudos.

Low point - Been shot on the lip. F**k that hurt! (but not as much as been shot in the teeth at Arnhem)

Nice work American forces. There was a time when I considered you easy targets, and that time no longer exists!. You have proved in the last two games to be a formidable fighting force :wink:

Well done CIA organisers!

Ah its actually 'you've got red on you' and its one of those 'humour by repetition lines' in the movie. :)

Starts off before the zombie out break when his pen leaks on his white shirt and people keep saying 'you've got red on you' then when they are splattered in gore the same line is trotted out.

However, I've uncovered a photo that I think explains it all:
