Hi F&B,
The only RAF Group that was at Victory show was "An Airfield Somewhere In England".
I was at Victory show acting as RAF Liason for a French/ Jedburgh's group.
Pity about last year :( I really like the event.

ahh, "An Airfield Somewhere In England", thats the bunnies, what a great bunch of lads they were too, really enjoyed the interaction with them over that weekend, they were genuine, helpful and up for a laugh with the Axis bods (us) opposite, I do hope that we can catch up with them again sometime soon.

Victory Show is our absolute Fave show, the atmosphere, the battle, the aircraft and the public (always appreciative) make it a nice way to end the season. 08 was a shame, but the weather we have no contol over, looking for ward to this years already. We are suggesting the Beer Tent dress code should be 'Hogans Heroes' this time :D

They're ok in my book.

Victory is the best event we do. :D

We are always friendly with the Axis forces as we do battle against them. :wink:

LOL, Gott mitt uns!

Yeah we like the look of your Aircraft to- Built in Germany finished in Kent! :lol:

Regt wise we have a 40mm Bofors gun, Bren LAA, and the morris for scouting about.
Colonial friends were always moaning that we're too fierce and aggessive!

Good banter is what it's all about, we find 99.9% of the Britishers are a pleasure to work with, and we (as the bad guys :D ) try to get along with everyone, allowing for random invasions and small things like that :lol: .

We are free on the date you mentioned, do you want me to PM you the events secretary's details?

Hi ,
We're always polite to the gentlemen of the battlefield, there is no politics on the Dark side of the hobby :wink:
Always be friendly to the guy with the MG42 and the WSS trying to execute us again :?
Usual sh** is caused by the Spams to be honest! :lol:

11th of July let me know whereabouts you want us as my events coordinator is in a sandbox ( Afghan Jim's Pizzahut)at the mo.

Hi PebbleMonkey, nice to see another ww2 type on here.

I agree with you totally about the comradery, We russkies have a brilliant banter with the germans in the NWW2A.

Hope to see you at an event sometime, I'm easy to spot, I'm the huge red army assault engineer for the 13th Guards, usually seen chasing the German Marder with anti tank grenades and molotovs (I'm sure he's put the drive backwards in that thing, it's quicker in reverse than going forwards)

Hmm, all that banter makes me ponder re-enacting Maleme airfield ;)

Tempting you to the Light side of the Force?? :wink:

Though, Maleme is a tad early for the RAFR. I (and my bank balance) is happy being muddy evil for the time being ;)

Hi Guy,
Maleme is technically the reason why the Regt were created, Fallschimjaeger attacks had been widespreadly predicted during the battle of Britain and Airfield defence was normally left to the Army.
When Crete fell to the suprise invasion by Fallschimbunnies the RAF decided to form the Regt as specific Anti fallschimjaeger troops, Thus meaning the Regt was an Elite unit formed to fight against an Elite unit.

Which also meant they got the best men, best equipment and were also better paid :wink: than normal forces.
