Re: Ant Z /Pirschen militaria

Both, unfortunately, appear to have 'ceased trading', ebay has no gear and the site is "rebuilding". A pity, as I have fo...

Re: WW1 Section?

Much of what has been written in this thread on the attitudes of those who re-enact WW1 is very true.

Some people do get all the nice mothers-in-law.

DVD's look excellent, a good choice. I trust the brand of aftershave was also well chosen. :)

Re: WW1 Section?

Battle group south now do WWI worth thinking Thats true Franz, BGS did take a decision to form an Imperial German re-enactment group recently and a section for the Great War was opened on our Axis forum.

Photo example given on page 50 of the b...

Pathfinder Camo Net Discussion Thread?

Would appreciate it if anyone can point me to the recent thread discussing Pathfinder Distribution's camo net burlap pattern variations. I think it was about one month or so ago.

Boll*xed if I can locate it! :( and beat the UK vat rate increase in 2010!

Thanks in advance.
