Apart from a lack of dead Pit Vipers the Report to Moscow Centre will be largely Positive.

I certainly wouldn't mind doing so, and I think I know a few other guys here in Denmark who would be interested as well.

Thanks for all the very positive comments about our photos.

As with all the Monty's Men trips the photos were shot by myself (Gary Hughes) and Jeff Ball as AFPU camermen using original cameras (i.e. Super Ikonta 532/16's using 120 film.

The fact is that they look so real because Monty's men brings togetehr the best WW2 re-enactors who really know how there stuff, both in terms of kit as well as field craft etc. Plus also the photos are taken in Normandy, more often than not as part of a 3 or 4 day 'Field Phase' that gets everyone nice and dirty, tired and most of all in the groove.

For more eye candy visit our website at www.afpu44.co.uk.

:D

Just wondering for the guys in the D.L.I 49th Division pictured here
What battalion are they portraying 10th , 11th or 12th ?
What colour is the arms of service are they wearing. Due to being in B&W you cant tell.
Currently working on doing the 10th Battalion impression and will need to buy the Infantry one so I need to know colour and where to buy it
