Aesthetically they are not right at any time or any place? :wink:

There are pictures of the Jerries wearing them, so I would assume you lads can have them as we stole them from you. :giggle:

Right, volunteers needed!

Engineers x 2
Signallers x 2
NCOs x 3 (acting, unpaid, obviously)

(Engineers and signallers will still get shooty shooty opportunities.)

Signals or Engineer for me too.

While I have Y&L insignia (slip-on & cap badge) I confess to sadly having the same for Royal Corps of Signals (Horn) and Royal Engineers (Il Giogo) too!

But may be signals then I can stick with Y&L and my signaller trade badge.

Hurrah for badges!

No KD rank insignia (yet)!

A pair or wire cutters/strippers would definitely be useful :good:

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."

"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."

I was also hoping to be a Bren gunner for this one or I'd sign up for engineer or NCO too. Probably not very easy roles to combine.

To Dave: My 'engineer kit' consist of a pair of RE flashes and some wire cutters, but I've done engineer role at games with nothing more than my normal gear and a pouch stuffed with explody things. Wire stripping I either do with my clasp knife or my teeth.

Cheers
