Hey there 82nd

I am interested in joining, and following conversations with Anthony Barker, would like to apply for an application for rifleman or radio telephone operator (if this is includes doing field work with a rifle). I am quite passionate about the subject and have had the previous 3 years with the OTC and TA units both in and out of Kent. I am also interested in the War and Peace event, as it is near my uni, although I am currently unsure about events in August as they may clash with my MA Dissertation deadlines.

Hope to hear from you soon.

p.s., although I have field uniform and protection, I currently do not have a rifle or period tent but I do have a modern tent, does this matter?
