Has anyone else seen the chap that walks around Dublin city centre dressed up in full U.S Army gear (circa ww2)? Its a pretty impresive outfit, seems to have the full set up, its just that he is always in it. He looks like an extra in saving private ryan. Anybody now what the story with him is?
Moved from After Hours.
Maybe he's a shell shocked extra from Saving private Ryan and doesn't realise the war is over?
Wow, it lasted a full minute on after hours.
An army guy with equipment suited for the 1940's, you say.
Are u sure he's just not a member of the Irish Defense Forces?
Im 100% sure, it says U.S army on his outfit. He has the hip flask, backsack, shiny boots, the lot. Mad skinny as well so he is.
ive always wanted to ask him what the story with the get up is.
Well unless they were using Battlevests, Steyrs, 203's, NVE etc. back in WW2 no he's not a member of the DF
Yeah I've seen him a few times up by College Green, lord knows why he wears all that gear though!
ive seen him between rathmines and ranelagh a good few times
skinny as hell
Ah I think I know the lad your the lad your talking about. He started with the hat first the slowly added more gear. No soldier or actor, Just a little different. He lives off the Navan Road. Also strolls around wearing WWE belts now and again.
He sure looks convincing. I wander if its all authentic stuff or copys. Its a weird little hobby.
What a fruitcake.
I personally haven't seen him, or heard of him.
But lads, the thread has been moved from AH, so lets not turn it into a slagging match against the lad, ok?.
I just deleted the redirect from AH which might help a little.
never saw or heard of this guy before... odd
I wonder what would happen if someone wore a SS uniform around town...
