The German forces (about a platoon) were split into a section each of FJR, SS and Heer. The Heer (Army) section was theoretically Gebirgsjager (mountain troops), so I wore basically my Luftwaffe Field Division gear, topped (for posing around the car park purposes at least) with a Gebirgsjager field cap. Martin had enhanced his look with a big rucksack and a rope of the type normally used for securing ocean liners. Steve chose to debut in his Heer uniform.

The US forces gathered for the initial briefing. Scruffy lot.
The Brits seemed to be mostly Paras.
The Fuhrer's finest.
'Claude' - actually a Simca Sumb, late of the French Army, which served as the German transport. Think of it as a sort of French Unimog - with air brakes and a V-8 engine! What luxury!
As always, players had made great efforts to get the 'look' right.
The appearance of affordable airsoft Sten guns a couple of years ago has greatly increased the popularity of British airborne kit.

This chap was very handy with his rather nice K98.
