Market Garden event


Recommended Posts

I hosted a small Market Garden event back in September. It was part of a larger historical contest with cash prizes.

 

We dug foxholes and stayed out in them and pup tents. We ate repro K rations and locally liberated food cooked in a helmet shell. We showed the public the mundane day to day life of the combat soldier. At midnight one night we took a patrol through the park we were in. It was a neat experience.

 

Our display won first prize in our category: $500. The organizers heard fantastic things about it from the public and we had a good time. Here are a few pics. Ignore the 101st guy, he got lost. :-P

The foxhole I slept in. At night I fitted it with some captured zeltbahns over the top.

Very nice little display! My unit does a similar thing every year, typically based in 1945.
