I think it is possible to form a progressive peleton for waterloo, 33eme is ready for it and will buy shakos this year. 85eme will grow for it, 22eme will be intrested too im sure.

I am discussing it with Marc Middleton who is talking to the French groups. They are generally intersted too, but there are some problems that will remain and need to be solved first.

I'm wondering how we can grow out the 85e, though.

What do you mean?
Probably one of the very few old-timers here who hasn't been a regimental leader.

Well, how are we going to expand the German 85e. To be fair, we've been mostly conscripting Dutch 85e'ers. We're a pretty close-knit group, so it's hard to recruit random people.

You have the perfect body type for a malnourished conscript, tbh. Something I can't pull off. I have the correct height however. so that's something at least.

Well, that's the thing. I'm not malnourished, I just have a very good bodyweight. Overweight, to various degrees, has become the norm. There was just a lot less overweight in those days, mostly because of a suger-poor diet.

Perfect opportunity to share some of the insights I gained from Blazé's memories I just bought: French troops actually probably weren't malnourished most of the time. They were true masters in 'finding' food, and you will find plenty of accounts of them eating themselves completely full to the point where they become sick and become a casualty. Blazé describes how men would take everything they could find, spend all night making food, eat as much as they could and then just leave the rest to spoil, no matter if troops were coming behind them, and that it was common for troops to eat like kings one day and then eat absolutely nothing for the next.
