HI MARION,

 

...IT WAS AN AMAZING WEEKEND , EVEN THE WEATHER WAS KIND TO US !! HAVE YOU HAD MUCH INTEREST SHOWN IN THE SCREAMING EAGLE ADDITION TO YOUR WEB SITE ?

AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE ENCLOSED PHOTO THAT BEHIND ME PIPPINGFORD PARK IS MASSIVE, USED NOT ONLY BY RE-ENACTMENT GROUPS,BUT THE BRITISH ARMY AND FILM CREWS AS WELL. FOR THIS 'BATTLE' SEVERAL U.S. ARMY GROUPS CAME TOGETHER, ALL CHANGING THEIR DIVISIONAL SHOULDER PATCHES TO THAT OF THE 3RD DIVISION PATCH. AS IN THE REAL THING THE GERMANS HAD THE UPPERHAND BEING DUG IN ONTOP OF THE HILL WE WERE ATTEMPTING TO TAKE, WITH FIVE CONCEALED MG42S SPREAD ALONG ITS SUMMIT. IT SOON GOT THE NICKNAME ' MURDER MOUNTAIN' BY THE ATTACKING 'ALLIES'. LOOKING FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU. TAKE CARE.

MOOSE.

 

HI MARION,

HERE WE GO ... THE FIRST PHOTO SHOWS THE PRE ' BATTLE' BRIEFING, TAKEN BY PETE SKILLMAN, THE MAN RESPONSIBLE FOR ARRANGING MANY OF THE WW11 RE-ENACTMENT BATTLES HERE IN THE U.K. SADLY PETE IS EMIGRATING TO 'AUSSIE' AND WILL A BIG LOSS TO WW11 RE-ENACTMENT. THANKS PETE FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK.

 

 

Moose sent the following photos to me this week. If you've read the post in this section, Screaming Eagle in England, then you are already familiar with Moose and fellow reenactor friends who live in England.

 

Over the weekend they did an Italian reenactment and wore the sleeve insignia of the great The Marne, the 3rd Infantry Division.

 

I am going to begin to post the photos and their captions. There will be about 20 in all, so it may take an hour or so to get them all posted.
