US Army, Pacific Theatre, B.A.R Gunner

Took my US Army, Pacific Theatre impression for a spin at the Hill in Dundee on the 5th after watching "The Pacific" I have to admit its starting to grow on me quite a lot as a series, really starting to enjoy it, the Peleliu episodes are fantastic.

I know the USMC camo cover on the M1 is cheeky but I couldn't resist it!

I have to admit the HBT's were a damn sight comfier than my usual woolen shirt/M41 jacket combo, especially in the humid heat of the day.

The site owner Warren also very kindly let me have a shot on his genius Vickers!

Nice loadout man, very nice.

The Pacific was a great movie. My wife bought me the box set for Christmas and I love the Peleliu episode.

Also, I have started to read Eugene Sledge's book "With the Old Breed" and I highly recommend it - great read.

I read leckie's "helmet for my pillow" which was fantastic, I will certainly try and grab Sledge's war diaries too!

I have to admit Airsoft is an obsession for me, ever since I found out I could play at a site with a M16A1 in Nam Jungle fatigues this is defo the sport for me!
