Singapore Sports School display and talk - 071108

Once again, we were back at the Sports School on Nov 07, 2008, thanks to the support of See Ping and Mrs. Lulie James who made this event possible.

The theme of this display is changes within the German army during WW2. We demonstrated this by showing students uniforms, gear, personal equipment, army traditions and practices from early-war, mid-war and late-war periods.

We then asked several volunteers to try on these uniforms and gear and compared them to the current SAF military uniforms in terms of construction, method of wear and durability.

The event ended with a race to see who could run the fastest in the uniforms and gear. Very apt since we were in the Sports School!

Our two brave students all dressed up!

Bob was also dressed up as a Panzer crewman.
