I'd include a Victoria Cross on one I'd like to do, but the two medals I have are from the Timeless GI Joe Australian Jungle Fighter, so they're the Croix de Guerre (French).

I'm sure that the British and French resistance would work closely together..so it's perfectly feasible that one of our lads would have been awarded a French medal. Although maybe they wouldn't wear it out on operations.

Here's a little bit more equipment ideas that may help with some more future ERF kitmix/bashes.. There were plenty of farms and coal mines in the uk back then, so there would have been plenty of farmers and coal miners in the ranks of the ERF/WRF/SRF/IRF groups in WW2..

Ideas for your kitmix/bashes:

1. Farmers Shotguns

2. Crossbows (silent stealthy firing)

3. Scarves and large handkerchiefs tied cowboy bank robber style, to protect the identity of the Resistance Fighters

4. Modified gas masks can also hide identity, dark camo face paint for night raids

5. Miners torches, pliers, ropes, Grappling Hooks, black coloured inflatable dinghies and camo canoes

6. Balaclavas would also have been worn to hide identities on raids..

I think Balaclavas can be made out of old vam ruined 'Basic Soldier' jersey sleeves (top part), vam green socks, and also the fingers cut out of old wooly 1:1 scale real gloves, with a slit for the eyes, it just needs a bit of simple sewing (turn glove finger inside out to do the sewing for a neater look)

I hope these ideas will help with future updates in this thread.

Our hypothetical British Invasion by the Germans hasn't gone strictly according to the Germans' plan. They've encountered much more resistance, both military and civilian than they ever thought possible.

So, they have a new plan: Swing North, and cut down through Scotland.


It goes even worse.
