Agreed - and the Common Enemy we fight together against today are those people who think that the Greeks and Poles did not fight well! We will show them that they did! (And I am not even really Polish!)

Hey Robou .Hey Corporal Bang.


Robou@ Nice Idea from you too renact a Rooster Ähmmm ( Bersaglieri) A very Nice idea indeed i Urgently need some Feathers to get rid of some dust who is on a Few Books Please com Here Com Put.Put.Put.After all when we had Placked The Chick we Cook some Extra ordinary Chicken-Rooster Stew ( Italian-Style).

Corporal Bang@ How Do you want Your Chicken Ähmmm Rooster Stew with Potatoes a La Milano or with Squeezed Italian Ähhh.Tomato-Juice.or I Preferred
The Menu Nr.4/1945 on our Mixed Food-Card.with Pasta A la Mussolini Hanged on Milan Square with the Boots in the Air and as Desert Petacchi -IceCream The Winemaster even Preferred a Very Dry Greek Robola Wine who is very Sweet for such kind of Mediterenean Food:twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Robou@ You See we Do it By The Books Especially by the Cook-Book.
But Hey Robou Nevermind Please Remain Calm No Man Here Have Somenthing Against you Impression -but Sorry Why For Gods Sake you want to Reenact an Italian or Please Answer me a very Simple Question Show me an Example who the Italians Had won A Single Battle .OK.Ok: Ethiopia But They Use even Poison -Gas too Overwhelmed the Stiff Resistance that the Ethiopians Have done.Here in Germany I Repeat Germany the Italians are Known as The Bests Runners in The World Complettly Unbeatable Short-Distance,Middle-Distance, Far-Very Far
The Germans say the Ancestors of Today Italians Had Run The Entire WW2-Away not too the Front but Away From the Front Of Course The Win most Gold-Medals in Every Olympic-Games
its in Their Blood it,s in their Vains or Simply Tradition ( That what I Had Sayed About The Gold-Medals or so SAY the Germans not I But i Don,t Believe that this is a LEGEND)


So Don,t take what is Written too Hard .Do your impression believe in Victory and Maybe...

Hello To All.

Back on The Main Track who is Greek Army.1940-41.it will be Interesting to Know How Much Greek Helmets was produced in Italy just Before Starting the War the estimation Says about 100.000 other Sources Say Less Unfortunatley the Archive was destroyed.Theoretically a Greek Soldier even can wear an Italian M33-Helmet but with Cover or when he Withdraw the 2xbuttons who are in Front of the Helmet and Voila Here you have a Greek one.

Well depending on what you wanted to use it for, for recon it was perfect but not so sure how it would perform against the well built fighters of Italy

Which ones? The CR42 - a Biplane, the G50, only marginally better in performance, the Regianne RE200 without self sealing fuel tanks (initially rejected because of that) or the Macchi C200? all of them undergunned. Not having a pop at your answer Robou, but that was all they had - they only improved later in the war.
