Here's a link to my latest blog entry. A small selection of my SCW kit. Just now I'm going down the militia road with Orwell and the POUM.

A group of us are setting up 'Not Just Orwell'. The idea, and fact, being that 28 ILP men, including Orwell, went to Spain and served in POUM militia, not in IB; this makes them heretics in the eyes of, well, others. We plan to do two private training events in UK and at least one event with local groups in Spain (Aragón/Catalonia). Starting 2014.

We know it is fairly niche and time specific but we believe that will allow us to focus sharply on kit, clothing and training to shed some light on a part of the war that is often overlooked and/or lied about. We are also going to have lots of FUN!

Comrade,
After purging, you and your surviving Comrades will become yet another plank in the bulwark against Gitlerism.

We will send you a Political Officer and staff.
