    The replica clothing companies are really starting to get me down.
    At work we are starting a project where one of the chaps had to find references for Soviet and German field uniforms for 1944 or '45. He went to The History Bunker in Yorkshire and since he was there all day and the owner was glad to show off his wares, they got chating.
    The owner said that 90% of his WW2 uniform sales are German. And that of that 90%, a further 90% were SS or other Nazi uniforms. I find that sick. I know our veterans and fathers fought for our freedom, but freedom to do what? Dress like a pigging Nazi?
    I'll stop writing now before I go into a rant, but I think you all know where I am comming from...
