Would that be a PAVN soldier? ;)

As NVA has an entirely different meaning over on the commie side of life. :)

Re: 'Have a Caaaaaare!!!'

I've never thought it to be anything other than a reenactorism designed to make other people aware you're about to fire a piece of ordnance. Translated into Mummerset because 'Fire in the Hole!' would be difficult to explain outside the late C20. Nobody told me this, incidentally, it just seemed the...

Why? What they were doing was plastered across their website and it's obvious to even the casual observer such as myself the defence they're relying on. Will it work? Your guess is as good as mine.

Are you on Facebook? If so search for Combat Forces 89 you should find plenty of like minded people thjough perhaps slightly earlier than your chosen operation. Also I think they're mostly based slightly north of where you are but not a million miles away.

Re: Webbing pattern dates

Have you checked on karkeeweb? It's a good question incidentally. While it's not my direction of interest, for example, I am aware that the 1944 pattern was not issued during the war.

Still to watch the last episode but I've enjoyed the first two and it being outside my main directions of interest has been refreshing. My knowledge of the HYW is gleaned entirely from Shakespeare, some dodgy 1970s school history, coming across mention of the French Ordonnance(sp?) armies of the lat...
