As a point of interest I would like to know which unit was still wearing them with putties  in Bosnia ?

There were some rogue elements in HQ SFOR who wore them. Mollinary was there and can confirm!

Makes sense, they had a fiercely guarded reputation for not getting out much.

Patience. Pendraken have outsourced the making of the Royals to a place called Lympstone.  I have instructed Leon to add some genuine mud from the River Ex - plus blood swat and tears gleaned from the Bottom Field (Google it you maggots) into the mould.

In the Royals they call it the "Ex Factor"  Cool

Oh deary me Sunray!

Recorded a PBS 2 part documentary on the Battle of Choisin last night. Started watching it today and so far loads of great footage; Marines in winter gear with camo helmets and rucksack covers, as well as Marines looking as if they'd just landed on a Japanese held island in WWII.

Interesting. I served with some "old hands" who had been in Korea Nov 1950 when the Artic conditions began. Caught out the temperate clad UN forces.

Hungham was the American version of Dunkirk.   Might well offer scenarios  that transfer well to table top ?

We need a dedicated set of BKC sub rules for Korea.

Interesting. My late father in law was one of the Frozen Chosin veterans. He took a mg burst across the legs, invalided out at the tender age of nineteen. 😞

This one?

Techno/Phil

This is the action pose of a 41 Commando R/O I was talking to you and Leon about.     Korea apart, years and years of Proxy applications for early NATO types and Third World.

I have sent you the image of the Browning .30 being waist fired RAMBO style.

Cheers

I have just noticed the Colt holster-  Hadn't appreciated that even small arms like the .45 Colt 1911 was the full American deal for 41 Commando.

The only British kit they had was their Green Berets.
