'Weathered' British Airborne Helmet

Ok, so some of you may know about my liking of all things 'weathered', that's 'weathered' NOT 'aged' (and its a personal preference, not a group preference). After being inspired to weather my Airborne helmet after seeing the work of Greg from Texas who makes and weathers his own range of helmets (If anyone has a link or contact details for Greg, please let us know). Although his work is outstanding, unfortunately his prices (for me) are a little prohibitive so as I had my own Pegasus Militaria reproduction helmet I guessed it'd be simple enough to do the weathering work myself. Here's my efforts, minus any stampings which I need to make for the inside. The Glider Pilot helmet is on course and I'll have some updated photos asap so watch this space. Cheers Matt.

Battlefield History TV Release Another Market Garden DVD Cover

The chaps over at BHTV were kind enough to send me another DVD cover design for the second (or third) part of their soon to be released Market Garden trilogy. The first part should be available by the end of January 2012 with parts 2 and 3 following (see previous posting for Part 1 DVD cover). If previous BHTV publications have been anything to go by (The Glider Pilot Regiment and Pegasus Bridge) then this MG trilogy should be worth adding to the collection, along with the fact that a certain GPR living history group, with friends, took part in the battlefield reenactments! I'll keep you all updated as to release dates etc. Cheers!
