Getting up at Dark O’clock- sentry duty at the Forts Gates from 04.45...





Guarding the allied CP..




“We are completely surrounded”


Fresh troops arrive






Captured German receives fair treatment..

I can't comment-must have been too busy posing at the wheel of the jeep. Have to say he was pretty well "tooled up". He probably new we were going to need all the firepower we could get to hold off the Nazi hordes!!!

Chris- do you seriously think I would let a jeep with 94th Medical markings get by in any of the piccies...there are some people who would have had a field day. Thats why I got hold of the censor!!

To be fair Chris it is a good event, although it's a fair distance to travel as Rizla has said it's a pretty unique setting. Would be good for you and Ben in that you could travel light and enjoy a well put together tactical that provides variety and a bit of a social in the evening. Sleeping in the haunted ARP post was an experience!

ill go along the river and find a free bridge to cross, ended up at Canarywarf HSBC tower Central London, went through the blackwall tunnel, then off on my way home lol, added an extra 2 hours to my driving trip home to Hampshire!
man i was annoyed on that trip home lol got in at 5 oclock.

Same here, would like to do Amhurst, as I have heard a lot about the venue. Look forward to working with all the new guys as well. It just goes to show what can be achieved when like-minded groups and people work together, and not try and go off at a tangent. The trouble with Napoleonic events was the quality of the officers, they thought they new everything, but new very little. Although our CO, Milo, is bloody good. He would make a better Sgt wilson, then some people lol!
