Re: Italian campaign army lists

I thought the Sturmbrigade RFSS was formed from the Begleit battalion with - in Corsica - the addition of a Heer battalion and supporting SS assets? Composition Sturmbrigade RFSS in September 1943 after reforming in July 1943: I. SS-Gren. with schutzen/grenadier companies 1.-3., 4.MG company, 5.IG c...

Re: Universal Carriers

Greetings Given the often independent action of carrier sections they had to have good section commanders - looking at Infantry Training Part V on the carrier platoon (1943 edition), the carrier section commander expected to receive instructions from the rifle company commander his section was suppo...

Re: Rolling 2s and 3s

Greetings

For CoC that’s on page 6 and referred to on page 4? Also the glossary (for section/squad and team).

Admittedly it does not place a platoon within the structure of larger formations.

Re: Universal Carriers

Greetings

The diagram just does not repeat the ranks for lines other than the first line. So the JL for each section of carriers is a Sergeant.

Re: Infamy, Infamy Hairy Germans!

Greetings I don’t think archers are referred to in the Ancient British context - which does not mean they did not exist* but were not regarded as important to mention. Sling use at British Iron Age hill forts is attested by finds of different forms of shot. * having said which from a quick trawl I c...

Re: Italian campaign army lists

Greetings 1. SS PzG Div 16 had StuGs - these are pictured in Rome (e.g. Concord Panzers in Italy p.41. 2. The Aufklarungs Abt should have had an armoured car company but an extract on the web from ‘Scouts Out’ says there were none in June 1944 and the other companies were motorised. 3. I do not thin...

Re: At the Comrade End?

Greetings Pin in the map! Biased toward larger areas of population and remembering some formations remained in the Far East. But I think that originally (pre-1941) units would have been recruited from the same general area - though as the war went on this would have mattered less as replacements cam...

Re: Infamy, Infamy Romans

Thanks for the link. It was an interesting little view.

I am thinking about using 15/18mm EIR vs Dacians (as I can’t really justify 25/28mm though a friend has EIR 25mm so could use those).

Regards
