Default Introduction...

I just wanted to introduce myself to the MLU Forum and as a former Sapper, thought the Sapper's Mess was the most appropriate place...

I've always had an interest in military conflicts (WW2 especially) and blame my Father (natuarally). I joined the British Army at 17, and served 11 years in the Royal Engineers in Close Support, EOD and Armoured Engineer regiments.

My interest in WW2 was rekindled by finding a German Fallschirmjäger helmet (single decal) in Norway (near Dombås) in 1995 on my Novice Ski & Survival Course (Arctic Warfare Training) after passing my All Arms Commando Course earlier in the year.

I like to collect WW2 "special forces" Militaria and have things such as a Welbike, RZ20 parachute & harness (complete), Abwurfbehälter etc...

I do attend the shows in the UK and US (and am thinking of Overloon this year), and am a member of the MVT, MVPA and Kubel Korps.

Warmest regards,

Martin

Hi Nick,

To be honest, I'm not getting anywhere...

Do you know of anyone selling an F15 out of interest?

Best regards,

Martin
