Taffy!! Any of your other regulars going to book on?

We could do with a few more Italian civilians. They will be armed civilians and fighting the whole weekend, just so you know.

I can lend some 'partisan' gear that I got from a charity shop if anyone's missing anything.

Hi Smurf, here's what I advised "civvies" to wear on a recent game:

Remember you're trying to imitate civilian dress from 65 years ago, so as regards colours, think in terms of grey, brown, black, navy etc.

Suggested items:

Corduroy or suit-type jacket or long mac (useful for concealing weapons!)
Shirt - i.e. button-up, collared or collarless.
Jumper or tank top
Corduroy or non-denim trousers
Flat cap or brimmed hat
Black or brown shoes / boots

No-nos:

Military clothing, tee shirts, blue jeans, white trainers!! :wink:

Have a look at The Godfather. When Michael hides out in Sicily all the local tough guys wear flat caps, shirts and corduroys.

Saucy !!

Seriously though, please don't mock one of the finest actors of the 20th Century. Until I saw Diagnosis: Murder I though he was a real life cock-er-ney.
