Winning The War on Weather

We're locked into a vicious, no-holds-barred War on Weather. El Nino is on the loose and running wild, sometimes it rains, or even snows, at other times it's hot; sometimes it's sunny, at other times it isn't. Our adversary is cunning, and no one knows for sure when, where and how the Weather will attack. And that's why it's important to be prepared.

Part of that means having the right kit to do the job, and here at the Compound we recommend as an invaluable toolkit for all those who have dedicated their time, resource and yes, lives, to this struggle against our implacable enemy. is especially useful to those of us who live in areas of the world which are hot, such as Texas, California, or Australia, in all those many places where the sun hasn't yet been defeated by our rulers' Coalition of the Willing.

With that in mind, Team LSP is delighted to offer you this important resource, and we're sure that you'll find it as useful as we have, in the fight we all share, the War on Weather.

Arduus Ad Solem,

One of the reasons for the neck curtain in the sun helmets was the need to protect front ranks from the discharge (burning powder, etc) of the rear ranks. The French Foreign Legion never favored helmets and used a kepi with a rag down the back to keep the sun off. That was also favored by the US Army in the post-War of Northern Aggression period during the various Indian campaigns. In Texas, they always seemed to favor the straw hat. But they weren't in a square volley firing (or the hats would have caught fire). I think that a regulation straw hat for the DLC is good for summer campaigning but can you really improve on the Stetson for a uniform hat in Texas? I think not.

Interesting discharge point, and I agree -- has to be a Stetson.

This War on Weather is horrible, I've had to break out the summer-weight uniform again! I already have to wear it nine months out of the year, speeds up the wear out time.
