Since I'm SoE, I'll obviously be speaking to my French colleagues in a very proper accent, as trained in good old Blighty, so:

"Gid moaning overy-biddy."

See, that's what a classic English education, and lots of practice does for you! :happyswing:

It would be great to see some of the kit you guys have for these roles any pictures would be great.

Just found this worth watching for film fans.

I am now intending to re-open the recruiting thread at 7pm on Sunday 27/11/11.

That is providing I remember but this is an advance notification for all those who wish to jump at the US slots of which there are now 9. :D

All other bookings none US stand as before, any questions just PM me.

Field phones could be good to have on this, but I do have a re-enactment mate near here with a German sentry box and phones.

May also use some radio gear on the US side but not set on that yet.

The French resistance side will be fun remember there will be a big language barrier between them and the US :giggle:

I have 2 us radios handy/talkies that I could bring if I can make the game Nige. As well as my jeep and /or the T25 if it's ready

Doug I will have to talk over the vehicles as I tend to want German or German captured vehicles hence a re-flag on my LITTLE TANK to be a bit Allo Allo :giggle:

Walkies could be good are they PMR internals like my stuff?

Thanks for sending the jeep to the last game it gave a good convoy feel driving through the tunnels along with my tank.

I will be looking for payments in about April.

Here is a good photo of the site :good:

You can see why the main house section will be good for this event.

The attached F block is to be used as a German barracks.
