Bren Gunner seeks No.2 for Fun and Frolics. Must have GSOH.

Postby Barrie and Anne » Sun Mar 09, 2008 9:25 pm

As of today have just got my home-made hicap working and feeding perfectly so if I can get another one finished for Varsity we should be able to field a support gun with 1000ish rounds.

That means I'm going to need someone to carry it around (you get to shoot it too though) and I'll be the loader.

Anyone up for it?

Steiner expressed interest a while ago so he gets first dibs.

So not Anne?

We're going to try and build the British unit for Varsity as per the proper unit organisation... Hence two sections, maybe three.

1 Bren per section, with a No1 (L/Cpl) and No2.

(yup, one less than in an standard infantry battalion)...

What I'm trying to get at is that the No1... has rank... :)

I'd do it but just don't fancy carrying it round all day - Brenda's a heavy girl!

I take it that the No1 is the Gunner? if so I'd better get sewing :wink: oh that's after I've actually got the bl**dy thing working :(

Yup... No1 is the gunner, though you can swap roles... and the No1 is the L/Cpl.

That's one stripe on the right arm.

If you don't have the stripe then I do have some armbands available...

Anyway, I thought you were going to be one of the Cpls?

Cpl's fine by me, just can't remember discussing it, but then my mind's like a sieve these days :oops: ,(one of the joys of getting older :roll: )
