    Lol I totally forgot about that, that sure was funny. For those who weren't there, our dog seemed annoyed and constantly barked at every reanactor that wore a British uniform, must be something they ate...

    Here's a picture of her eating the hard needed supplies of the Americans:

    Thanks.

    I a'm wearin a original shirt, overcoat, en the hole equepment is original.
    The only things not original are the boots, the pants and mine M41 and M43 jackets.
    all the rest is original.
    I know, it is stupid to use originals, but its sometimes much cheaper then repro's (allmost every time) and most repros are not so beautifful and strong then originals.
    I hope I have answerd your question.

    Kind Regards.

    Nice! We tried that in late 70'ties... but ended up in jail. They confiscated our whole collections and we wher brought to court for membership of a private militia!
    A private militia composed of GI's, WH soldier's and one Belgian Gendarme wearing that old uniform with the high cap.
    All we where doing was... re-enacting...
    We never did thise again...
    Always looking for Belgian Congo stuff!

    Hi Vincent, you guys look really good. Being young and the right size helps too! Nice choice of unit. Or did you watch "Kelly's Heroes"?

    I have been re-enacting since 1977. In the old days I used to do US infantry. In those days everything was original as repro items just did not exist.

    Good luck to you in the future!

    Cheers, Ade.
