The £4 isn't my price, its what I paid from my local scrap yard. They were £5 originally but I beat him down by buying 100+. He still has lots of pallets left.

You could just buy enough boxes to cover the opening at the back of the wagon to make it look full. Drop me a PM if need details of where and when.

Hi there my name is luke halladay, I am a re-enactor who is putting together a Military based magazine.
The magazine will be Free to all, enabling you to become part of our mailing list.

As a re-enactor I found that I have to buy three different magazines to find the things im looking for, so I come up with the idea of combining all the areas of most interest and sending it to everyone showing interest for free. The first issue is due for release on the 1st January 2010 and will be sent straight to your email address monthly. The
magazine is in a PDF format allowing 99% of all computers to access. The magazine will consist of upto 124 pages of Militaria, containing:-

- Re-enactment Groups, this allows us to publisise your group.
- Re-enactment Group of the month, Our team will pick a group from our contacts enabling them to have 4 pages dedicated to them in the magazine.
-Military Vehicles, this is an opportunity for subscribers to send us photos and details of there pride and joy. It
Will also have a double page spread for 1 vehicle in the month.
- Restration projects, subscribers can send in thier own projects, to help others or even ask questions.
- Classifieds section, subscribers can sell items, all militaria based
- Wanted section, For subscribers who are looking for things to complete thier collection but just cant find it.
- Vehicle Classified Section, For subscribers to sell thier Military Vehicle.
- D_Day diaries, the Stories from the vets of D-Day.
- Events Calender, The Calender to show all events in the year. Subscribers can send in events to be added.

For more view the website http://www.fofmagazine.webs.com
to join the mailing list send us an email to:
fofmagazine@live.co.uk
or www.fofmagazine.webs.com
IT IS FREE........................ even to submit us your group and information, future events of 2010 for the calender, pictures of your vehicles and group photos (we are looking for photos to be front cover images......)

For this type of magazine to go ahead, we need as much interest as possible, therefore we would like all interested viewers to spread the word and become part of this new exciting new idea.

Hi me and Liz otherwise known as she who will be obeyed have just joined the forum and it is our first military vehicle.

We have a 1942 Willys Jeep from Phoenix Arizona - ex navy but we have painted it as a tribute to the 82nd AB 319th Glider boys as they were based at Papillon Hall close to where we live in Lubenham Leics. I have attached a phot0 taken at Papillon Hall

We also have a Bantam mock up trailer based on a Sankey narrow. We have built a trailer to take them both out there so we will see how well we travel

The only problem now is that because I am a tall fat b******d I only just fit behind the wheel. So - we are doing Normandy with MVCG 86 and after that we will be looking for a Dodge WC Ambulance as they seem to have much more room for the more substantial gentleman.

Hi Steve,
you trailering that Jeep to Normandy :wink: We're driving ours all the way there and back, thats what they were designed to do :wink: Love the Papilon Hall pic, nice touch that and Lubbenham is a lovely part of the world. If you're after one of Dodges finest then we need to talk, we've owned all the marks between us in the group and we're currently running at 1 WC62, 3 WC51's and 1 WC52, sadly no WC54 anymore but that may be changing very soon !!

Cheers Dave

Would love to go all the way as the actress said to the Bishop but we are then going down to the Vendee after Normandy and although the jeep may well take the journey my pocket wouldn't, petrol is around 1.25euros a litre using the diesel saves me pounds as the lourney is over 1000kilometers each way.

Lovely machine we have just joined but I feel that the groups standards morals and joie de vivre is as low as our own so I feel we will become part of the "family"

Hi Steve,

yes buddy, you're right about the cost of motion lotion and with the pound/euro as it is it is'nt going to be cheap. Hope you enjoy the Vendee too, it's a lovely part of the world and some great beaches there too. We're staying at Fontenay on the estuary just down from Maisy if you fancy linking up ?

Cheers Dave

p.s. One of the guys got another Dodge today :wink:
