The DDR Still Exists!! Should we re-instigate Active Edge?

#1
I have decided to post this here because if anyone knows this, you Green Slime Types will have the answer! We all know the reunification of East and West Germany took place in 1989. Due to a very un-German oversight however, a small part of the DDR does still exist. In their excitement, they forget to mention this place in the reunification treaty, and as a result, the DDR, my Arrse friends, is alive and well.

As a result, ladies and gennelmen, I suggest you check your 58 Patt webbing and Large Packs, as you can expect the sirens about 3 am Mon morning.....

Answers on a postcard.......! :D

Don't forget, NBC kit, JHW and Poncho c/w bungess in the bum roll. Mess tins cleaned with wire wool! Please do not forget the blistered thumb caused by excessive sewing of elastic onto the aforementioned 58 Pattern webbing. I still have a set, customised, 2 ammo pouches, 7 waterbottle pouches and roll-pin belt, fits like a glove.

My youth is reborn, now if I could only find that old SAS smock, my MTQ2 notes and my danner boots finally gave the up the ghost in 2003, I am not wearing one of the those nasty green shirts though.

How do you get it onto your hands?

With my scrim scarf and tin lid worn at a fashionable angle, I've just 'crashed out' from my driveway pretending my Peugeot was a 432. 20 yards down the road and it's dumped a large amount of oil and decided to stop altogether. Memories are made of this!

Reminds me of a certain callout where we paraded and lined the vehicles up an hour before the official callout. IIRC the first vehicles were rolling out of the gate about 1 min after it arrived :roll:
