  1. You know what? Take that film of the British soldiers, substitute WW2 uniforms from ANY country, and you have an accurate portrayal of Sunday afternoon at about a dozen “tactical” (no audiences) re-enactments I’ve participated in! Having arrived on Friday afternoon, made camp, gotten little or no sleep (usually due to drinking the night away, or in my case, riding herd on those who were drinking), slogging around all day Saturday with no rest and little food, and another night of festivities, by Sunday afternoon, most of us looked just like those chaps! (Well, maybe not the loon climbing the tree, or the other guy chopping one down!)

To get from the left to the right! He stepped out of rank, got hit by a tank, he ain’t no chicken no more. No!” Or the classic line: “Where’s your drill sergeant?” “Blowed up, sir!” “You completed Basic training on your own?” “Das de fact, Jack!” Only in the US Army could that NOT get you shot, but get you PROMOTED! :)
