I'll be there with my German unit, but I'll be dressed as an Italian! I'll probably sit in the Soldatenheim most of the day as we're invited by Das Reich, so don't hesitate to swing by for a drink, some food or a chat! B)

That's an old one over here, too. Here I THINK it is spelled "gnurn". Had no idea it was popular in the Mother Country! :lol:

I might be interested in the Bersaglieri badge, depending on shipping costs. What would be the "bad news" for the badge and shipping to the USA?

Tom

I think the bad news would be Moncello isn't selling it, much like the canteen i tried to cajoule out of him using guille and charm..... To no avail. Hard man, Camerati Moncello.... All those years in the NKVD have made him immune to puppy dog eyes.

This event had its ups and downs but the best bits was spending time with 'The Gentlemen' and the lads from 'There and back again' (our inglesi counterparts) as well as meeting up again with Glenning, who looked resplendant in his uniform..... Molte bene,Senor Tenente. Also managed a few bargains ourselves with original Alpini Ski Equipment,OTO grenade and bars of Regio Esercito soap and razors. At last...... I can have a wash now! Maybe wash the Gurn (or is it Gnurn) off my face....;-)

Neil

Si!, Camerati,

For all the reverses of the first few days of the Front, we did make a fist of it and Camerata supermario recovered several fine examples of Italiano State Property for the enrichment of UK Italiano Re-enactment, Camerata Glenning had a jaw II Duce would have been proud of.... looking forward to more Images to be posted.

Ciao!.

Re-reading the post, I don't know where I got the idea it was for sale. Ah well. Can't blame this old coot for trying!

Camerati,
As a Red Army Reconstructionist, Camerata Glennings wearing of a Cold Meat Medal was Noted and added to his Employment Record to be answered for in front of a People's Court... His cutting off of three toes on his left foot and the little finger on his left hand did show the dedication he had for his Direction of Interest.

:D

Camerati,
Being a Lesser Fascist can get to your head I think... I will have consult my Political Officer on the Matter.

I fit a sweat rag to my Modello 33 liner if you are wondering, like a big knotted hanky.


Pavia, Bravo!.

None of your Camerati, struggling to hold the line in the Desert, Camerata glenning?, but lots of your Amici tedeschi?.... shame on you.....

:lol:

Your Tedesco Genossen need to read up on the shape of their field positions, they look to be in a trench dug to bury a drainage pipe rather than a field position supporting a MMG gun pit against the Liberating Red Army. :blink:


I bet you gave them the keys to my truck....as well ;)
