You make a fine Guard. :good:

I'll send some P.M.s and see if we can get some uniformity within the Garrison.

I plan to be kitted out as follows:

M42 Stahlhelm (ungarnished)
M40 Feldbluse with Infantry white shoulder boards
Greatcoat (loaned from Steiner, will wear as applicable)
M43 Hose
Low boots & Gaiters OR can do jackboots but prefer my lowboots for comfort
EM Belt with K98 pouches and breadbag
Gas Mask can
Kar98K rifle
I will also carry P38 pistol as it will be needed for any close range engagements but will keep it in a pocket rather than in holster.

So don’t think I marched there for this reason – it could carry another name – but because there is a very important goal... this goal I wanted to take – and you know – we are very modest, we have it already."
Adolf Hitler, November 1942

"Comrades, Red Army men, commanders and political workers, men and women guerrillas! It is on your perseverance, staunchness, fighting skill and readiness to discharge your duty to the country that the defeat of the German-fascist army and the liberation of the Soviet land from the Hitlerite invaders depend! We can and must clear the Soviet land of Hitlerite vermin."
Joseph Stalin, November 1942

Does any member of the need a greatcoat as I have one they can borrow for the game ( I'll be wearing Saturday night)? I've also got various bits of spare German and Russian kit if any of the partisans are short on gear.

Do pistols rounds count towards our 300, or can we use a pistol in the unlikely event that we run out of ammo?

A pistol with a mag or two is fine, especially for those situations that are too close for a rifle.

Ammo for the pistol is tasken out of your 300 rounds per engagement allocation.

Otherwise we end up with the ridiculous unlimited ammo pistol game and it makes conserving ammo with other stuff pointless.

Onsite by 9am (BST) I believe. Clocks go forward, so you'll have to be up an hour earlier.

No, there's no need for you to bring civvies!
