    Merlin that guy on that page isnt fat, he is just big boned and wearing an oversized uniform. Actually who am I kidding? he is bigger than me and Im considered fat. Merlin to awnser your question I think it was in ur re-enactment pics topic, there was mention of the fat guys eating the cake, pie or cookies I really cant remember :grin: mmmm Pie, Cake, and cookies.

    cake,cookies, pie

    i got 36 donuts for free from Wal-Mart on alber pike in Hot Springs, thanks to the generosity of its manager Benny Hardage (yes he is a distant cousin of Will's) and some one else brought Crispy Creams, and a good thing too because a racoon got one box on the first nite see we should haved posted guards on them. Wlly Hightower is a big man and so is Wilhelm Hardage but when u consider that Wally was the entire Bristish Army at this event. we arent complaining

    re-en

    I have shown these pictures to my friends in the Tommy Atkins Society,
    a comment from one member (picture below) who lives in Holland said,
    "perhaps the 'stalwart Brit' could show them the correct way up to fly the Union Jack", (Broad white band at the top).

    That's not a peace sign, it's a V for Victory sign. Those darn hippies should learn what they are talking about.

    Gentlemen, I would appreciate it if there would be a little less comment about the weight of these reenactors. After all they are just ordinary civilians with a hobby, and it does not really matter what they look like as long as their equipment and uniforms show an honest effort at historical accuracy.

    XXL

    Quite right Roel, if some one likes to dress up as a fat para or a fat commando as a hobby and it makes them happy, good luck to them.

    fat thread

    there is a tendency as one grows older to becoming wider and i fight against it. at least in my case it isnt completely innapropriate because i am an older officer/chaplain this unit was started as a reaction to fat and bald reenactors portraying themselves as the SS. What gets me is being told by, of all people, Will that wears a 3x lol that I am fat

    re-enacting is a very costly hobby and it jsut happens that guys that are bigger tend to be able to participate. :kill: Better than no re-enactment

    Oh I have a WWII related question, hopefull soemone here can awnser it.

    What are those cylindrical drums used for? In movies and WWII films germans soldiers often wear them. In the picture Merlin posted from the newspaper you can see it standing on the table.
