Title: The 08/15'ers!
Post by: Leon on 17 February 2013, 06:01:59 PM
Dave decided to invest in a reproduction WW1 German helmet last summer, which he got Jenna to paint up in some distinctive camouflage.  This one has been to a few of the shows towards the back end of last year, but we'll be taking it along with us for the rest of 2013 and we're hoping to capture a few of you wearing it!

After 'The Cat in the Hat, and the 'Pendraken Auxiliaries', we'll also need a name for this new thread, so please add your suggestions and we'll pick the best one.

Here's the first two volunteers from the York show:

Your new thread title could be 'Die Null Acht Fünfzehner' i.e. The zero eight fifteeners?

Great idea here  :D
"That's 08/15" is really an extremely common term in German, but most people don't know that it derives from a WW1 weapon.

Trouble is, J.S., some of my northern bretheren have problems pronouncing English, let alone German.  :P

Only three poseurs at Carronade and all of them are members of the South East Scotland Wargames Club. 

That's me second from the top by the way.
