Pipes you really need to chuck the Alice ruck in the bin, sorry but this is like a German reenactor wearing Bundy stuff. And as an item of point; all Zippo's and VC/NVA flags coming out of Vietnam are junk made for the tourist trade, much the same as when you go to Paris and come away with a model of the Eiffel tower.
Also the M17 Gas mask bag should be worn on the left thigh, thin strap around the leg and the larger one going around the waist.

Otherwise a great start to a new impression :D

Welcome, sorry can't make military oddessy, as I have three other events to attend this week and weekend, The 90th Anniversary of the death of our leader and mentor Michael Collins, The father of our nation to a large extent and our greatest military leader, and the Salute show in near to Dublin which should be a fine occassion to attend as old friends and new alliances can be strengthened and forged there and on bank holiday monday I have a large lecture in Belfast to attend on the History of the Irish volunteer organisation.
