Re: SS Auschwitz trial to go ahead

It's Oskar Groe...

Re: SS Auschwitz trial to go ahead

I am all in favour of people being called to account whatever their age, but your do have to wonder why this wasn't done in the 70 years between now and the crime.

Been to this a few times. There are a LOT of punters and a LOT of stalls selling Christmas tat but all in all a fun gig. Bovington do their usual trick of demanding the moon and offering feck-all in return, but with a few HiVis jacketed exceptions the ground staff are generally OK. Worth it if you l...

Re: Scho-ka-kola - Taking authenticity to the next level.

One of my civilian ones has the remnants of the tin seal and it is indeed a form of paper. It can surely be reproduced with a bit of photoshop magic and a laserjet.

Re: use of bell tents ?

Plenty of pics of HJ using bell tents for their camps, but I can't see many soldiers choosing to cart around a heavy canvas tent, captured or otherwise - especially as the whole point of the Zeltbahn was not to have heavy tentage as part of a unit's equipment.
