Nice to illustrate the poot stopping power of the M1 Carbean to the masses :wink:

The trench system looks excellent and not a kraut in sight...

It took Ian 3 or 4 shoots to bag those two… and from all of 75yards… some stopping power on that Carbean…. :wink:

Germans…. You never know…. We may man the Siegfried line or the Volkssturm could defend the Seelow Heights from then, they may even move continent for Mark… it would look good with a few Dough Boys in them too…

A nice site that is well used and as such has that ‘used’ look that things need… sometime that just dug look is not what you want…

Nice out building, nice skylines and fields beyond… all in all a good day out….

Dear All,

Personally I thought Stoneleigh, was a waste of time, nowhere near the bargains to be found in the old days. I also enjoyed the flanking maneuvers of some ! Nice also to attend the AFRA AGM, as it was a much more supportive affair. Thanks to Paul and his team, it feels like groups are there to be helped, with their endeavours. No ego's either on the top table.
Glad to see that Summer of 44, won the the best display, they most certainly deserved that accolade, well done to Kate and her team.

Best regards to some,

Der Chef.

PS Could not see any long spoons for sale ? They must have all been sold early on Saturday !

For those who know Bill Tom. It appears as though his Gmail account has been hacked as I've had a message saying he's lost his wallet and requires money to be wired to him etc. Needless to say if you have received a similar mail it is NOT TRUE!! I've contacted him to warn him.

Hello,

How are you doing? I hope all is well with you. I know this might be a surprise to you but I'm writing this email to you in an hurry and in a confused state of mind. I want to say I'm really sorry that I didn't inform you about my traveling to Scotland for a Seminar. It was something urgent and i didn't even inform anyone about this traveling. But I just got myself in serious mess here. I got my wallet misplaced on my way to the hotel and all my money, phone, bank cards, diary, my return ticket and other vital documents are all in the wallet. I'm so confused right now as I have lost all contacts.

I need to get out of this mess. Please I need $1,500 USD to sort myself out and to pay for the hotel bills but I will appreciate any amount you could afford. I will pay you back as soon as I get back home. Let me know if you will be able to help me with any amount and you can help me send the money with my details below at any western union money transfer office and i will get the money over here within an hour.

Name: William Tom
Address: 14 Porteous pend, Edinburgh, EH1 2HP Scotland
Country: United Kingdom

Kindly help me to make the transfer as soon as you receive this email and you should get back to me with the 10 Digit Money Transfer Control Number, exact Amount sent with details used in sending it. I still have my passport to prove my identity at Western union here when receiving the money, and I will email you with the return flight details immediately I receive the money.

Your reply will be appreciated.

Thanks so much and God Bless You
