This picture actually comes from a book I am currently reading,'Bader's Tangmere Spitfires the untold story,1941' by Dilip Sarkar. Quite interesting.

The picture is of Sergeant Bob Morton, one of the pilots in Bader's Wing, who says 'My mother asked me to have a photograph taken for her, so I did!'

One wonders what was said on his next leave! Hope he did'nt have a younger brother or sister who saw this, they would be scarred for life!

My side arm (Browning Hi-Power) a hatchet and my German Fallschirmjaeger switchblade (that one of the Germans gave me for my knife when I was over there). Of coarse I always have these things on my person when I'm NOT flying.

As I recall the story with the above pic, the gear is for a high altitude spit, the pilot had a serious 'overbight' and preferred not to show it.

Why on earth (OK, on the parts of earth which aren't in civil war) do you find it necessary to carry a gun indoors??

I wear the same thing I fly for real in - omitting the sunglasses, hat, coat, second and third pair of socks. I.e. jeans, t-shirt, perhaps a jacket if the room is cold. Shoes optional.

I don't ever attempt to swallow drink-cans, though, unlike our friend in the picture...

Since I am starting to become a little more open about this I will say that if you had taken a look at the PTSD (respect for veterans) thread before it got wiped out I had many interesting things to say about that. In short always carrying that thing around with me, even indoors, makes me feel better and may be something that most people will never understand. I was IN a part of the world that was in a civil war and just because I am home now doesn't make it all just go away.

Usually i dont wear anything,
but occasionally (i collect ww2 pilot headgear) i wear my AN-H-15 Canvas Helmet (with receivers) A-14 Oxy-mask and AN6530 Pilot goggles for that extra immersion (the classic google type) (albeit, the stuff is only worn when i fly american aircraft in il2 ) :lol:

My M9 bayonet. I had to buy a new one but it was worth it. To top it all off my great uncle had one that he took off a German paratrooper prisoner during WW2 and I had admired it since I was a boy and when I was in Germany many years later and saw the same knife I was amazed! The only difference is the WW2 knife has a wooden handle and the one I got in 1995 has an olive green "plastic" handle. I was very disappointed in the fact that we were supposed to make a jump with the fallschirmjaegers and we were never able to do it but we did get to do many other great and amazing things with them. As a kid I would have never imagined training and doing field exercises with the German army IN Germany as a GERMAN SOLDIER! It was a very wonderful experience. On a final note, I was eating breakfast in their chow hall and one of my buddies taps me on my shoulder and says "Your not going to believe this!" and to to my surprise there is a German soldier with my same last name!! So I approached him and pointed to the name on my uniform and his eyes got real big. We promptly exchanged uniforms. It is quite neat to look at.

It depends. For Total War games, I wear the same as Obelix, minus the menhir:

When I play this sim, I wear a suit made of fresh human skin, and a mask:

I wear the Danger Dogz standard uniform of black leather shorts and fishnet tee-shirt of course. I always leave my 1911 on the desk so I don't get jabbed in the ribs by the hammer when I sit down.
