Very nice photographs and well done to everyone who participated. It's always great to see groups setting aside personal egos and agendas to work together in achieving something more than they could individually. Ultimately that's how an actual Army operates and it's a shame there isn't more of it in reenactment. Behaving in a military manner doesn't necessarily mean shouting at people and going on a power trip, sometimes it just means organised cooperation and administration to facilitate attaining a set goal.

Outstanding. I'd really like to get your lads involved in the next Monty's Men trip in 2015 as KOSB in 15th Scottish Division. And I'd be very interested in joining in some of your future events.

Very, very good indeed lads, I doff my steel helmet, and never a truer word uttered than by TALLERTHANBETTY above.

I'm still amazed that people simply cannot grasp this elemental and simple fact no matter how hard you try to make it a reality
But no thread hi-jacking, excellent Normandy effort boys
