    BAOR/BFG equipment, such as Chieftain, Centurion, Centurion AVRE, Saracen, 432, Saladin, Stalwart, Sultan and Scorpion, laid on by the museum, backed up by anything we can bring along, There will be German beer tents, and other German food stalls selling Bratwursts, Currywursts, Fikkadelle,s Etc and a Dance night in a barn, with BAOR/BFG era music, if it goes well it could be a yearly event. 500 Tickets are available for the first year, growing to 800 tickets in year 2 if first year is successful, If you would like to go then put your requirement for tickets on the event poll at the link at bottom of this page.
    Tickets will be £30 per person

  2. Looks very good indeed, but your barmaids in dirndls need to be able to carry at least 7 steins each, it does need to be realistic you know.

  3. They are currently under training at a Secret Location in Berlin to protect the innocent, lol
  4. No Cold War warriors should take these tickets. They've had their fair share of drinking themselves nearly to death with no thought for their own safety in their heroic struggle to hold back the soviet invaders.

    Only those that haven't lived and served through the hell and deprivations of the Cold War should be allowed to attend. They weren't there man.

    Plus, think of 500 CWWs all pissed and vomity, weeping and wailing into their pilsner und bratty mitt mayo und pommes over a rusty old wombat or the sea of oil leaking from a knackered chieftain.

    Give the tickets to today's warriors... it's for the best.
