    used to known a guy who was into civil war reenactment

    i was quite surprised when i informed him that his arm tattoo quoting the fella might not go down to well in the republic, and he had no clue what i was talking about

    it's no surprise to me that Hollis is interested in military re-enactment when he derives his username from general sir leslie hollis, late of the royal marines

    but i did think he'd have more to say on the subject than there is in the op

    That weird full stop in the title needs to be taken out by an invading army.

    Another way to enjoy this is to go online and blow more than you can afford on some bit of technology that's already out of date, plus ask them to deliver it three years from now.

    no, if you ever meet hollis you'll find he's very keen in his attachment to the royal marines and as a past commandant of the rm leslie hollis is one of our hollis's heroes. indeed, no one else outside the royal marines (and damned few within them) can recite all the names of the rm's commandants, their birth and death dates and a rude anecdote about each.

    Some people get veeery touchy when you mess with their thread titles. Besides, I thought the full stop might be a military cipher of some kind.

    Anyone reinacting anything post WW2 is very odd.
    Waffen SS is either a Nazi or read too many war comics when younger and is too stupid to understand why wearing an SS uniform is wrong.
    If it involves wearing kit I was issued FUCK OFF it's not living history.

    I like military reenactment and briefly thought of joining the Red Army one, the 2nd Guards, but realised I would not have the commitment. One show I went to had a small group who recreate picnics that would have taken place in WW2, that really appealed to me.
