While looking through my Facebook feed I noticed a FB page that might interest you. I also found a picture there that shows an image of a FJ wearing what looks like a splinter pattern smock right after the battle for Heraklion. The FB page is here:Wow
Thanks very much, it not only answers my question but also gives me a starting point for more research, thank you very much indeed
I don't think your costume is appropriate for this thread, it was a genuine interest not a political threadO M G !
I can't believe it!
A member asked/posted about of all 1:6 stuff . . . splinter pattern smock!
Since when was the last time such words ever uttered/written in a discussion post here?
Maybe it's sign of possibly better fortunes to come?
I feel like getting out my female beer hall wench costume out with the wig and lederhosen and . . .
EH . . .
UH . . .
I mean my Gestapo outfit. Yeah. My 1:6 Gestapo outfit sets. It's been a while. Yeah.
Dave, I think you took that the wrong way as he wasn't actually criticizing or belittling the nature of the discussion. DFC was just joking about the direction that the forum has gone in since VS took over and so many members left. I don't think he meant anything political by mentioning the costumes (there was actually a joke in there but some might consider it kind of vague) that he did. I could be wrong though as DFC is just a bit "off" ( ) and tends to have something of a quirky (yeah, that's the word I'll use) sense of humor. Now it's more common to see figures discussed here that are decidedly more fantasy or fictional based than historical military figures. Many of the diehards that have stuck around have certainly noticed all the female, comic, sci-fi, superhero, etc. figures that now make up most of the discussions around here and his joke was poking fun at that. Those figures have been discussed here for quite awhile and I'm not knocking anyone that's interested in those genres but military figures used to take up the bulk of the discussions here. When so many of the veteran forum members left, they took most of the military discussions with them and many of us consider that kind of sad.I don't think your costume is appropriate for this thread, it was a genuine interest not a political thread
