It's Pippingford Park (not Pippingham) on Sussex/Kent border area (not sure which county it's in!)

Italy Spring 1944 /26th 27th April INVITE ONLY EVENT

Post by Pete Skillman »

Info on next years Pip Pk...decided to go for Italian themed event...

Date of event ; 26th/27th April 2014

NAME OF EVENT; "OPERATION CRAFTSMAN"

Armourer; John Oxlade HireandFire@hotmail.co.uk

VENUE ; Pippingford Park Estate East Sussex (A22)

Operation ; Italy April 1944 The Allied Advance into the Po Valley

Division ; 2nd Battalion of 349th infantry regt,(The Kraut Killers),

88th Infantry Division (The Blue Devils)



The thrust to capture the Valley and cross the River Po started April 1944...the 88th Division was in the thick of it.. The idea of this event is to have as many American re-enacting units rebadged and operate as one company of 2nd Battalion of the 349th infantry regt... KRAUT KILLERS of the 88TH Infantry division THE BLUE DEVILS.....we will operate if numbers are big enough as two maybe three Squads of a platoon....each Squad with minimum of 8 and max of 12 men in each squad.

The Allies will have a start line and advance onto prepared Axis MLR...digging in for the night...
any groups wish to try out a Pip Pk contact me via PM and we can sort you out etc..its not an open invite as not all ww2 reenactors see authenticity as the main goal of a private tactical...trigger time and kills are not what its about...supposedly!... :o
