Few photographs of 1&2 section, 12 platoon, 1 Border, 1944. We had a training day on november 27th, during which we gave lectures on organisation, fieldcraft, tactics and other subjects. Elementary drill was practiced as well. During the afternoon we went out in the field for a patrolling and attacking exercise.
Normally our faces and hands would be blackened but as it was only one day we did not bother with that. Still, the camouflage is surprisingly effective.

Yesterday another training day was held, this one was about elementary drill and skill at arms. A nice group of lads decided to show up, two full sections and platoon HQ.
Here are a few photographs:
The Platoon Sergeant showing a few new recruits how to properly load the rifle:
Instruction on the Bren LMG: (as you can see brand new recruit, no insignia yet)
And of course every section needs a few rifles too. We do not blanco the slings because they would not have been your personal property, just like machine gun auxiliary pouches. All personal kit is blancoed though.

One of my old reenacting groups (Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders of Canada of the Northwest Historical Association) did a Canadian Airborne unit as a secondary impression, and I'm impressed with your group's authenticity.
