OK so have been busy uploading photos to the site. Lots to go but thought it was worth an update. Please ignore the non-period wristbands, they are very hot on security at the event...

 

So up first we have RT Maine on patrol (over the fence in Kent) with our new indig team

Hi Paul,

 

I was down last weekend at War & Peace and thought you guys put on one of the best displays of show, also some of the nicest gear. VERY authentic.

 

Well done and keep up the good work!

Indeed. Just had a browse on your site, very impressive.

 

Would you be able to recommend any literature on SOG suitable for a beginner? I'm only just getting into Vietnam militaria and am not that clued up!

 

Thanks,

 

Will

I would suggest for a general background Plasters (he is an ex- SOG 1-0) first book SOG: The Secret Wars of America's Commandos in Vietnam

http://www.amazon.com/SOG-Secret-Americas-...2658&sr=8-2

His more biographical one is good too, Secret Commando (ignore the awful cover...)

http://www.amazon.com/Secret-Commandos-Beh...2658&sr=8-1

 

For photos you have the following

SOG: The Secret Wars of America's Commandos in Vietnam: a photo history: John Plaster

Running Recon: Frank Greco (also a SOG veteran)

SOG: Team History and Insignia of a Clandestine Army, Volume 1: Jason Hardy and Mike Tucker

http://www.thedogtag.com/BK-1.htm

 

and for the other side of SOG I would recomend We Few: Nik Brokhausen, very hard to find but a work of genius.

 

Mike Tucker and Paul Miraldi on this forum also know a thing or two along with Mr-X.

 

hope that helps

Nice photos...Can I make a quick critique as this is the first thing which stood out, and please don't take it the wrong way...

 

Face camo, also cover neck and hands... :thumbsup:

 

when taking living history photos, find a way of hiding the wrist bands, only takes a few seconds but makes a big diference...
