    Hi Nap.

    Love the additions and I'm afraid to say I've been peeking over your shoulder and will be copying you when I get around to him.

    My LL is away at the moment as working on the badges.

    Following with interest.

    Just playing catch up Kevin,
    Superb work on this complex casting mate.
    Beautiful work on the webbing to very good effect and the addition of the ever present award tapes works very well. It was always a Lady Elizabeth Butler trademark to add a splash of colour within the drab greys and browns of war.
    Press on My Friend this will be one of your very best pieces.
    All the very best wishes,

    Hey buddy, it's all looking good except for one thing.
    The sculptor has the grenade ring held wrony.
    You could not pull a grenade pin this way.
    All soldiers were taught to use the 38 grenade in the following way.
    "With a firm grip on the Bomb in the right hand, and ensuring the spoon, (handle) is squeezed and depressed,
    Look down, and place the centre finger of the other hand into the grenade ring,
    close the fisat and whilst looking down at the weapon,
    pull the hands apart in out nto the aim position.

    So if you can mate you may wish to change that.

    Sorry to tell you this now, I didn't spot that in the
    Black primed piccie before euromilitaire.

    Thought you knew stuff mate ........but haven't you heard of the Lovat pull....a regimental tradition to pull grenade pins likewise.........

    Oh cue the grown man sobbing bit!.........

    So are you saying the ring should be on the middle finger ......can you draw a pic you please .......

    Cue sobbing loudly !!!!!

    Cheers Paul , the comment will help others as well as me when they are doing their LL

    Naah Paul You got that wrong mate.

    Everybody knows you pull the pin out with your teeth. all those war movies can't all be wrong.
    Think of it propper the way you explained it, If you were left handed you would throw the pin and hold on to the grenade. :whistle:

    Hi Mick ,

    Blimey that's it ...in his teeth ...for me I reckon I will throw Paul and keep the grenade ....bless him

    Seriously though ..I want this right so appreciate all thoughts on this !

    This is one Kev threw.
    As you can see I was trying to distract a sniper at the time.

    If it is mate, you are going to be on a 252 charge form !
    Take them stripes off and sew 'em back on the right way up,
    And get a f~#*ing shave, you 'orrible slovenly corporal.

    Lovely shoulders though,

    Show'em orff lovely boy

    Off to the Sgts mess for a wad and a wet$

    Hi Guys ,

    That fellow worries me and look what he did for me .......he has the pin ...but where's the grenade..probably behind the cat basket !

    Notice picture before he did his nails ...he he what a star he is

    Question is ...should the pin be happy or droopy of half droopy?

    Looks great that Kev.
    It looks like he's pulling the pin now.
    Earlier it looke more like he was putting it back in !

    Thankfully a quick fix too, even with big brother watching from behind him.

    Love your mug there handsome.

    This one slipped the net, this looks superb. Khaki looks like khaki and not washed mud and now Peedee has shown you how to chuck a grenade.
    Our Platoon Sgt had nerves of steel till it came to grenade practice.

    keep up the excellent work.
