Well, the Legion is ready for them. The old French 75 has been cleaned up and is ready to go, if they can find the ammunition for it. Likewise the Bofors 40mm twin mount. The troops have been issued the rifles from the armory and have taken themselves to The Bunker over on 6th Avenue for supplies and rations and the daily issue of "rum" (one liter per person, 151 proof). Several problems have arisen and perhaps someone can help:
1. How do you wrap puttees so they don't fall apart?
2. Where can you get a lot of ammunition for .57-90 caliber rifles?
3. The Legion needs a large sign that reads "Be SURE to tighten the cinch before mounting the horse!"
4. Another large sign is needed that reads "The saddle horn goes to the front!"
Your help would be greatly appreciated.
