    Gentlemen if you are interested, we’re basically a month out. This will be an adjunct, with our own camping area separated from all mainstream camps by a significant distance.
    It will be heavy camping with A tents in a company street and the QM will have tents. We will be doing individual rations.
    The impression is Indian Home Guard and for once Honey Springs will have an accurate portrayal with us in Frocks and Hardee hats based on the unit returns, as opposed to some fantasy of what the Indian Home Guard looked like!

      On the registration form, they ask for the commander's name/address...is that info required, and if so, what/who do folk put down as such?

        Well they won't get my address but I would think my name and unit name should be enough.
