sorted then :D il decide on kit closer to the event, a nice broad cross section of loadouts is bound to attract some attention from the multicam masses

Agree with this. The more factions we can get the merrier. I'll probably go Soviet or Japanese depending on what everyone else is planning.
I've fired a bullet on every continent. Nearly hit someone, too.

Umm, I've not been to an Open Day for years. Do we need to book in or anything beforehand?

It differs between sites really. It looks like you need to book on to the RIFT but I'll double check.

I'm tempted to go Brit Infantry for this, with a Bren or Thompson and fully badged up in Essex Regiment colours. I haven't worn plain battledress in a long time.

Ralph

Seconded, the more variety on show, the more attention we'll get (for better or worse!).

I've already sent the owner a message on the book of face. He said he'll open booking 10 days before the event and add our names to his booking list.

Could everyone just confirm if they are happy to attend on the 13th and I'll add you to 'ze list'. Please give full names :good:
Regards,

Ralph

OK, you only live once.

I'm up for this: Charlie Bennett

Shame it might be a tad cold for KDs or the kilt!

Cheers

Charlie

I have a small skewer hidden in the collar of my jumping jacket, and a razorblade in my gaiter, as well as my knife.

Updated. Just had a rummage through my wardrobe (which is mostly ww2 militaria) and I'm tempted to wear my fallschirmjäger kit. In November it'll be cold enough to wear the fliegerbluse which is probably the smartest looking combat uniform ever.
Regards,

Ralph

Heer impression on a open day is something I've always thought was a very, very silly idea... Only one way to find out for sure! Put me on the list please:

Wake up there, Muttley, you're dreaming again!

You're not a brave knight or a king who's been crowned;
You're just plain old Muttley, the snickering hound!
