Camerata fez,
I remember you well, likely you and your Camerati, first set Camerata Elsan's e myself head at an angle in all things Italiano.

Grazie.

I remember the march pass....... What a gag that was.

:D

If you feel inclined, it's rarely too late to return to the grigioverde side of life.
Just jump in - the grappa's fine :)

If you get to any gig which either i gentiluomini or mediterraneo are attending, why not say 'hi' as it's always good to chat with one of Vittorio Emanuele's early volunteers :D

Fez,

Might have parleyed with you at Beltring one year. When Steve K originally started to make the Para smocks, we (Me and Butcherboy) were on the fringes, as we had started doing Esercito. We dabbled with the idea about doing Paracadutisti, but went down the Army then Alpini route. The thought of trying to get a decent para helmet was the point at which i decided against it. No Ebay in those days!!!! As Elsan says, feel free to pop over and sup from the Grappa fountain that springs forth from either Viktor or Stoaters ample stock......

And Camerati Elsan, Inspired image. I know someone like that.......

Neil

Telo Tenda Mimetico Modello 1929. Keeping Farbs dry at night since 1978

Its a Tent! Its a Poncho! Its a Ground Sheet! Its a Camouflage against the enemy. My word, its even a waterproof sleeping bag! It is not, however, German.

M33 Elmetto. Good against shrapnel. Great for grinding coffee. For that superb sweat encrusted taste.[/size]

This is most unfortunate Camerata......as will discover when you put on your GV Breeches..

Camerati,
While we build our Positions in the southern sector of the line the Supply Truck bought this.

Both were washed to lose some colour and the one for the Boras zaino modello 1929 per armi a cavallo I dirtied it up with Brown Boot polish, I washed the leather straps to bleach them a bit and painted the metal work in Camerata Elsan's sacred GV he anointed me with when I was first fatto in Italia.

Enjoy.

Camerati,
This Plain Khaki four piece Helmet Cover lit my useless Super Hero power up like a "Yankee Search" does in submariner warfare a couple of weekends back. Only cost £5.00.

It has no stamps or markings, the cord is a woven braid, I will see if it is man made when I can.


I put it on my Modello 33 ( with Repro chinstrap and my sweat rag as the liner is size too large you will Note)

Image

Any thoughts? It fits very well, like a glove almost.

In the chaos of battle, when the ground beneath your feet is a slurry of blood, puke, p**s and the entrails of friends and enemies alike, it's easy to turn to the gods for salvation. But it's soldiers who do the fighting, and soldiers who do the dying, and the gods never get their feet wet.
