    As a couple of you chaps know I went to St Petersburg last January to take part in a re-enactment to commemorate the relief of the siege of Leningrad. It was a hell of an event, with loads of Soviet re-enactors and some great kit. The Russians were very welcoming people and we really did feel part of the team. Here are some photographs from the event:

    Excellent photos, Stefan! Thumbs up!

    Not only that, the girl (let's call her Natasha, sexy name ain't it? ;)), is carrying a rifle and a red-cross badge? What kind of evil (sexy) nurse is she? :p
