Brit contingent Brief

Postby Yith » Wed Sep 17, 2008 3:55 pm

Hi guys,

Webby has asked me to command the Brit contingent, which at the moment is:

1. Craig Armistead - Lipton+1
2. David Mindham - Lipton+1
3. Jay851
4. Cliff Southworth - Stof
5. Richard Heath - Yith
6. Robert Fenn - McVickers
7. Steve Marshall - Woodlander
8. John Birchett - john birchett
9. Simon Brand - john birchett
10. Stuart Chambers - jon birchett

I should know a few of you, but there are a lot of names I don't know there and I'm crap at remembering names at the best of times, so apologies if I forget who you are!

After a quick discussion with Webby the ideal load out for this one is as an Army Commando because of what we'll be up to. This is the most flexible of load outs and can cover basic wool or denim BDs through to denisons and wind proofs. Weaponry is equally as flexible. Do whatever you want! However if you try to guide your impression towards a Commando rather than any other unit then that will help.

This is not going to be an event that is in any way strict on uniform, so if you can't (or don't want to) follow this guideline impression, then that's no problem at all!

I'll be in the PBI 2 Commando uniform, i.e. BDs... badged up as an officer.

Please if everyone else can be an NCO or Private that would be best. Note that if you're badged as an NCO then expect to have responsibility passed to you. You better be up to the job! :twisted:

Anyway I suspect we'll be up a lot of sneaking about and generally being a pain in the neck to the axis forces, so it should be a lot of fun!

I'll be away on holiday next week, so I'm afraid I'll not be online from this weekend until right up to the event... so there won't be a detailed brief for this one.

Hi Yith just letting you know that I'll be comin' as a Brit (Canadian).
I know I'm down as a Yank on the list but i spoke to webby about changin' to commonwealth if the numbers didn't pick up and if it's alright with you I'd like to play on the brit side. Plus I've got 2 pals down as Brits who are new to this so I'd like to stick with them (keep them out of trouble) :lol: .
unfortunately we're bagded up as the Calgary highlanders and the 1st polish armoured div, sorry about that :oops:
cheers
Dean (lipton)

Then, sir, I will capture you, execute you (because you're a commando) and take said Sten and use it for myself! :tongue:

I, Craig Armistead by the way..., will be a Brewed up Polish tanker. The reason for him being with a group of commandos are many and amusing and should be left to the individual I feel. :lol: Thew 'Poland' is the officers make, but no one will know...

I do have an unbadged green beret and denison smock that I will bring down in case anyone wants it. i know thjs would make me into a commando but I said Polish tanker ages ago. :P

I have a webbly type pistol, but there are guns for hire if that's not enough right?
