Topics I've Started
02 March 2014 - 02:38 PMI have started this thread to discuss the Italian uniformi coloniale M40 that was worn in A.S. and A.O.I. To start:

The M40 uniform was based on the continental M33 (and its variations). The main differences was the material used and the lack of a waist belt. There was a winter and summer version, bot shown in the picture above (from Viotti).
11 December 2013 - 04:43 PMThe Monte Cervino will attend the 2014 Camp Clark Battle of the Bulge event in Nevada MO (17-19 Jan) . While titled Battle of the Bulge, this event is open to any WWII reenactment units. It is a tactical held on the Missouri National Guard training site at Camp Clark. 180 reenactors attended in 2013, about average for this event. We had Russian, Canadians, Heer, SS, US (inf and airborne), and Spanish. This was the second year that the battaglione participated in this event.
As always, any Italians that wish to try this event are welcome to join us.
28 September 2013 - 01:28 PMAn individual on WAF posted a picture of an unusual ammunition belt. He was attempting to gain some information about it. I had not seen this type of belt before, but it is similar in concept to the paracadutisti belt of the Folgore.

It looks similar to a belt in U&A 202-203. Same style of design, but clearly not the same belt.
Here is the picture from page 151 of that issue of U&A.

01 May 2013 - 01:57 PMHas anyone experienced slow load times of the site? For me, many times the first post of thread loads quickly, then it is the elevator music for an extented period of time. I have also experienced long delays when uploading pictures (the last one was only 24kb). Thanks!
