The 2009 campaign got underway last weekend with a good turnout at the 'Breakout from the Don' private battle. As has been said on other threads, turnout for the event was fantastic and the combatants taking part looked spot on.

Fantastic weekend for the group and we really enjoyed ourselves fighting the relentless tide of Bolshevism :)

Also got the chance to bed down in a derelict building for the weekend, cook simple food on the Esbit, kip on straw with just a greatcoat and wool blanket to keep warm - nice to leave the cosy tents and camp beds behind and rough it.

There are some great pictures coming out of this event, but I thought i'd share some of ours - the gallery is now uploaded to our website and can be seen at:

Bit of fun out in the snow the other day, it's funny - but I tell my kids to stop rolling around in the snow, but here I am like a big kid doing exactly the same!

Just want to say a big thanks to you guys, from me and I'm sure from the rest of the vagabonds in TFH. It was a pleasure working with you as always, and looking forward to it again.

To echo what has already been said...

I would like to offer a huge thanks from all the members of RECCE who attended the VARSITY event to Dave and all the members of GD Recon. Superb guys, very professional and fair. Thanks for one of the best private events I have ever been to!

Hope we can work together again in the future as this one was a pleasure

Cheers guys!

Pete

Really impressed with your unit Dave, in fact all the units there were pretty much spot on with their impressions, making it a pleasure to work alongside you all.

Anyway, some pics to start things, these are screen grabs off the video camera, still pictures to go up as I get them from our mob...

Dave, Neil and the rest of the GD boys

I'd just like to thank you on behalf of VERA, for a very enjoyable weekend, you guys are top notch. Fantastic to see field grey everywhere you looked and boy where you guys everywhere!

I hope that this is the first of many events that GD, TFH, RECCE and VERA are involved in and I think this has set the mould for future events, no more running round the wood like headless chickens wearing crappy kit like some do.

Once again guys, thank you

Regards
Gary

Cheers Gary, what can I say but great opposition - our boys, myself included enjoyed working with you and were well impressed with the standards of kit and your tactics at the weekend (just hope none of them want to defect as a result!!)

Certainly would be good to do more of these kind of things - next time we'll have to mingle at night a little more.

Neil.
