Hi Guys, this weekend our group is holding a 48 hour "private battle". It will be held in a very large area of woodland. Section 5 MG's will be hired, so I will get my beloved PPS.
This event involves 2nd Guards and two German groups who portray "GD". The scenario is the fighting around Memel in 1945 with Soviet forces probing the German lines.
The event is very hard core and not for the faint hearted. You sleep and fight in what you stand up in. Not modern kit allowed only wartime pattern gear. Food is limited and we will just get one hot meal. We may even have a dusting of snow! Last year at night it was minus 2, the year before it was minus 10.
Our group will be outnumbered 3 to 1 by the "Facists" so we will have to work hard. We have several vehicles coming, Sdkfz 222 and Sdkfz 251 which will make things interesting.
I will give an after action report next Monday.
