THESSALONIKI / YUNANI (GREECE) 01/11/2008

HELLO AGAIN FROM GREECE YOU GUYS. FIRST OF ALL A VERY BIG TERIMA KASI TO MY NEW INDONESIAN FRIEND ROLLAND AND HIS REPLY AS WELL AS FOR HIS GUIDANCE.

ALSO A VERY BIG HELLO FROM OUR FRIEND IN HOLLAND. I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR FROM YOU AS WELL REGARDING THE AIR SOFT ACTIVITIES IN HOLLAND. I’VE PROMISED ROLLAND A SERIES OF VERY INTERESTING PHOTOS AND HE SUGGESTED ME TO SEND THEM RIGHT HERE IN THE FORUM. I GUESS HE MUST HAVE THOUGHT THAT IT WOULD BE NICER FOR ALL TO BE ABLE TO SEE THEM. WHY NOT? IT’S A GOOD IDEA INDEED. SINCE ROLLAND ASKED ME BEFORE ABOUT VARIOUS GREEK AIR SOFT TEAMS, TODAY I’LL SEND PHOTOS OF THREE OF THOSE COMING FROM GREECE’S CAPITAL ATHENS. THESE TEAMS ARE THE FOLLOWING :

1) FALLOUT RANGERS, 2) TRIPLE – A & 3) BLACK NIGHTS. THERE MUST DEFINITELY BE MORE OF THEM OUT THERE BUT I CAN’T SAY THAT I’M FAMILIAR WITH ALL OF THEM AND BESIDES THESE ARE THE THREE BIGGER ONES. JUST LIKE IT USUALLY HAPPENS IN EVERY AIR SOFT TEAM, HERE TOO THESE GROUPS INCLUDES PEOPLE FROM ALL BRANCHES OF GREEK SOCIETY. STUDENTS, ARMY….JUNKIES (!), MILITARY PERSONNEL AS WELL AS POLICE OFFICERS, AND OTHERS. FROM MY OWN PERSONAL CONVERSATIONS I CAME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT MOST AIR SOFT MEMBERS IN GREECE AGREE TO THE FACT THAT AIR SOFT IS BY FAR BETTER THAN PAINTBALL AND THAT EFFORTS SHOULD BE DONE TO KEEP THIS OTHERWISE RELATIVELY NEW HOBBY (IT WAS FIRST APPEARED IN GREECE IN 2000) IN HIGH STANDARDS AND QUALITY MAINLY REGARDING THE PEOPLE INVOLVED. OUR BIGGEST FEAR IS THAT AS SOON AS IT WILL BECOME POPULAR EVEN….GEEKS WILL INVOLVED WITH IT AND EVERYTHING WILL GO TO HELL!!! I HAPPEN TO AGREE WITH THIS OPINION 100% EVEN THOUGH GENERALLY AS A CHARACTER I DO NOT FAVOR THE V.I.P MENTALITY. I ALSO WOULD LIKE TO ASK THE VIEWERS IN THIS FORUM IF THEY ARE INTERESTED FOR ME TO ALSO ATTACH PICTURES OF THE GREEK ARMED FORCES. I’M SURE WE ALL AGREE TO THE FACT THAT SINCE WE LIKE SUCH BATTLE SIMULATION GAME IT’S ONLY NATURAL THAT ALL OF US WILL LIKE TO SEE RELEVANT SUBJECTS SUCH AS ARMY IMAGES AND OTHER STUFF OF THAT KIND. PLEASE TELL ME WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS IDEA.

WELL ENOUGH WITH TALKING. LET’S GO NOW TO THE PICTURES.

OH! I FORGOT.........HAVE A GOOD MONTH EVERYBODY!

THE TRIPLE – A IS ANOTHER TEAM THAT’S MORE “CITY



ANTITERRORISM TEAM” ORIENTATED. INDEED THEY LIKE



MOSTLY TO WALK AROUND DRESSED IN EITHER BLACK



OR URBAN CAMO FATIGUES. MIND YOU THAT TO THE



CONTRARY OF US……. …”NORTHERNERS” THE



ATHENIANS HAVE A SPACE PROBLEM



AND THEREFORE ARE MOST OF THE TIMES FORCED TO



REDUCE THEMSELVES IN CQB GAMES RATHER THAN



NORMAL OPEN SPACE COMBAT. NEXT TIME I’LL SEND



MORE PICTURES OF OTHER GROUPS AND OF US UP



HERE IN THE NORTH OFCOURSE.

OH!.............YESSSSS! I ALSO FORGOT TO MENTION THAT I HAVE AN EXTENSIVE UNIFORM COLLECTION AND THAT I’M ALSO A REENACTOR. MOST OF THE TIMES I WRITE ARTICLES IN EITHER FOREIGN OR LOCAL PUBLICATIONS MOSTLY REGARDING GREEK ARMY HISTORY, WHILE USING MY UNIFORMS FOR THE

NECESSITIES OF SUCH ARTICLES. HERE ARE TWO SUCH PICTURES OF MINE DEPICTING TWO EPIC MOMENTS OF THE MODERN GREEK HISTORY. IN THE FIRST (THAT WAS MADE FOR THE FAMOUS FRENCH MAGAZINE “MILITARIA”) IT’S YOURS TRULY DRESSED AS A GREEK ARTILLERY OFFICER DURING THE GRECO-ITALIAN WAR OF 1940-41 THAT TOOK PLACE ON THE MOUNTAINS OF ALBANIA. THE GREEK ARMY PUT UP A HEROIC FIGHT THERE EQUIVALENT TO THAT OF FINLAND AGAINST RUSSIA PRETTY MUCH AT THE SAME PERIOD, AND EVEN THOUGH MANY PEOPLE DON’T KNOW THIS IT MARKED THE FIRST OFFICIAL VICTORY OF THE ALLIES AGAINST THE FORCES OF AXIS (GREECE – AND DESPITE TERRIBLE SHORTAGES – MANAGED TO STAND FOR 6 MONTHS. IMAGINE THAT FRANCE THAT SUPPOSED TO BE A MAJOR POWER OF THAT TIME LASTED ONLY FOR ONE MONTH!!!!). BECAUSE OF THEM HITLER WAS ALSO FORCED TO DETOUR WHILE GETTING READY TO HIT RUSSIA, IN ORDER TO HELP MUSSOLINI SAVE HIS DIGNITY (BY 1941 ALMOST HALF OF ALBANIA – THEN AN ITALIAN PROTECTORATE AND MAJOR BASE FOR THE ITALIANS TO LAUNCH THEIR ATTACKS AGAINST GREECE – WAS ALREADY IN GREEK HANDS!!!!). THIS WAY HE WAS DELAYED IN GREECE AND BY THE TIME HE RETURN BACK TO RUSSIA, IT WAS ALREADY TOO LATE FOR HIM……..THE INFAMOUS RUSSIAN WINTER CAUGHT UP WITH HIM AND TOGETHER WITH THE RUSSIANS IT DESTROYED HIS ARMY. GREECE - EVEN THOUGH NOT WIDELY VISIBLE BY MOST HISTORIANS – WAS INDEED THE TURNING POINT OF W.W.II!!!

IN THE OTHER PICTURE IT’S YOURS TRULY AGAIN, DRESSED THIS TIME AS A MEMBER OF THE SO CALLED “SACRED SQUADRON”, GREECE’S FIRST COMMANDO FORCES THAT WERE FORMED UNDER THE GUIDANCE OF THE BRITISH S.A.S IN NORTHERN AFRICA, AFTER THE FLED OF THE RETREATING GREEK FORCES IN EGYPT BY 1941-42. ENJOY THEM!!!

In indonesia we dont have a national rules for the FPS limitation,usually the limitation is limited by the host team,..around max 450 FPS or max over 500 FPS using 0.20 BB.but there are some team that only play in 380 FPS.
but,in big event is limited to max 450 FPS..that's for the riffle and for the hand gun GBB session we usually have max 380 FPS,because GBB hand gun we play in indoor area...
how many people join in your airsoft team??

Post by LYC on Mon Nov 03, 2008 6:52 am

YES INDEED MY FRIEND. SACRED SQUADRON’S (OR OTHERWISE NAMES AS BAND OR COMPANY) HISTORY WAS EXCITING. HERE’S A SMALL SYNOPSIS ABOUT THEM AND THEIR HISTORY THAT STARTED EVER SINCE THE ANCIENT YEARS AND END UP IN THE GLORIOUS DAYS OF W.W.ii :





“In the Greek history, the name Sacred Band appears four times, describing various Greek special units.

1-The Sacred Band of Thebes (circa 394 - 338 BC).
The Theban Sacred Band (Ieros Lochos) formed by the Theban General Gorgidas (around 378 BC ).
It participated: A) In the battle of Coronea (August 394 BC) against Sparta. In this battle, the Spartans defeated the Thebans.
B) In the battle of Tegyra (375 BC) , against Sparta again, under the Theban General Pelopidas . In this battle, the Thebans defeated the Spartan Army. C) In the Battle of Leuctra (371 BC) , against Sparta, yet again. In this battle, the Thebans under General Epamenondas , defeated the Spartans. D) In the battle of Mentinea (366 BC) . The Spartans were defeated by Epamenondas' Sacred Band for one more time.
E) The Battle of Chaeronea (338 BC), fought near Chaeronea, in Boeotia, was the greatest victory of Philip II of Macedon






There, thanks in part to the fearless cavalry charge (2,200 horse) of Philip's son and heir, Alexander, Philip defeated the combined forces of Athens and Thebes (35,000 men), securing Macedonian hegemony in Greece.
The battle itself pitted the classical phalanx of the Athenian and Theban confederates and the Macedonian phalanx of Philip.






The Macedonian Phalanx, is shown here in its fighting formation of 256 men, the Syntagma (Regiment). Its hoplites were armed with the 6m/20 ft long Sarissa long-spear

The confederate battle line formed with the Athenians holding the left wing and the Thebans holding the right wing (with the all-important extreme right flank protected by the Sacred Band). Athenians and Thebans occupied the center of the line. In the Macedonian line, Philip commanded the right wing. Alexander commanded the left wing and the Companion Cavalry (Hetaeroe. These hetaeroe were the heads of tribes and houses, and they maintained the unity among their followers with personal loyalty and blood-relationships. The organisation, from farmer to king, was very much patriarchal, and as a result of this depended the power of Macedon on the capability of its king), which was situated to the rear of the Macedonian line.

As the two sides engaged, the Macedonian left held against the charge of the Thebans. Meanwhile, the Macedonian right began an organized retreat. The relatively undisciplined Athenians rushed after them, causing a break to form in the center of the confederate line. Alexander drove the cavalry (some 2,200 horse) into the gap, outflanking the Theban left. The Theban elite unit (Sacred Band) was surrounded as the light and heavy Macedonian cavalry attacked it in the rear, while the peltasts attacked it from the other side.
From the 300 Thebans of the Sacred Band, 254 were killed.



The monument built by the Thebans to honour their Sacred Band's 254 dead. A few years back, archaeological excavations brought to the light the remains of 254 men, burried in seven layers. When King Philip saw the 254 Thebans lying dead, said in tears: "Perished is the man who suspects that these brave men have done bad deeds or have accepted measly things"





2-The Sacred Band of Iasi (February 1821)
On 22 February, 1821, Alexander Ypsilanti




a Greek who had distinguished himself as a Russian officer in the campaign of 1814 (where he lost an arm), formed a force of 500 Greek students studying abroad (Sacred Band), under the French Colonel Olivier Voutier. On 17 March, 1821, Ypsilanti raises his colours in Bucharest & marches against the combined Ottoman Forces at Drăgăşani of Moldavia-Wallachia, now Romania (Battle of Dragashan, 7 June, 1821) . The Turks defeated the untrained & poorly equipped Greek students.



3-The Sacred Company of the Greeks of Northern Epirus (formed February 14th 1914) under Spyridon Melios or Spyromelios , mainly by Cretan volunteers. The Greeks of N. Epirus (now S. Albania) formed this unit in order to gain their autonomous status inside the newly established Albanian State. They defeated the Albanian forces in the battle of Premet , on February 23rd, 1914





4-Tunisia-Aegean Sea-Dodekannese. The 4th Sacred Band, 1942-1945

After the German occupation of Greece, the Greek government fled to Egypt & started to form military units in exile. The plethora of Officers though rather than soldiers, led Air Force Lt.Colonel G.Alexandres to suggest the creation of an Army unit, formed entirely by Officers. This suggestion was approved by the Commander of the II Hellenic Brigade, Colonel (Infantry) Alcibiades Bourdaras. Thus, in 1942 the Company of Immortals was formed under Major (Cavalry) Antonios Stephanakes, with 200 men & was organized in the beginning as a MG Company .
On 15 September, 1942, its new Commander, Colonel (Infantry) Christodoulos Tsigantes
named this unit, Sacred Band (Ieros Lochos).

The Sacred Band
Tsigantes collaborated with the commander of the British S.A.S, Lt. Archibald David Stirling & under the approval of the Greek HQ, moved the company to Qabrit in Egypt (where the SAS base was) & began its Commando training.
On 27 January, 1943 & following Colonel Tsigante's suggestion, the CO of the 8th British Army, General Bernard Montgomery put the Greek company under the commands of General Jacques-Philippe Leclerc of the 2nd Armoured Division of the Français Libres & on 10 March, 1943 in the area of Qsar-Rilan (Tunisia), the first battle of the Sacred Band was given, against a German mechanized detachment, to cover the advance of the 10th Army Corps (British & Newzalanders) in order to by-pass the Mareth defence line, & advance further to the South On 29 March, 1943 & immediately after the allied forces captured the Tunisian town of Gabes, Sacred Band was disposed to the 2nd Division (Newzealanders) & on April 6th, a mixed Greco-New Zealand detachment fought against the Germans at Wadi-Akarit.
From May-October 1943, Sacred Band (314 men) moved to Palestine, in various camps, for parachute training There, it reorganized ( HQ Section, Base Section, I,II,III Commando Sections ) & after the capitulation of the Italians (September 9th 1943), section I was dropped on Greek island of Samos while sections II & III moved there on fishing boats.
At the same time, British troops, liberated the island complex of the Dodekannese . Unfortunately, when the British were pulled back from the islands, Sacred Band was forced to withdraw from the Samos island too.
In February 1944, Sacred Band was put under the commands of the British Raiding Forces . On February 7th, Sacred Band's Section I, was transported for combat operations to the islands of the N.Aegean sea (Samos, Psara, Lesvos, Chios), while its section II, was parachuted into the Aegean isles to liberate the Dodekannese complex. In April, Sacred Band formed a Regiment with a force of around 1,000 men.
After the liberation of the Greek mainland (October 1944), Sacred Band continued operating in the islands of the Aegean Sea & the Dodekannese, until May 1945, when the last German soldier, left the islands (THEY WERE THE LAST GERMANS OF W.W.II WHO SURRENDERED. THEY WERE THE LAST ONES....NOT THE ONES IN BERLIN!!!)”

The Sacred Band's Crest. This Crest was (1916-1917) the World War I Cross, a design of the French sculptor Andre Rivaud . The only difference between the two was that on the medal is carved on the reverse: Greece 1916-1917/Hellas 1916-1917. Sacred Band's motto, was the phrase: "E Tan e Epi Tas/Either it, or upon it" (a wish given from the ancient Sparta's mothers to their sons in war times. Literally, it means, "either you will return home carrying your shield, victorious, or you'll return carried on the shield, dead".)

IMAGE OF CHRISTODOULOS TSIGANTES. SACRED SQUADRON’S CREATOR AND LEADER. TSIGANTES WAS A GREEK ARMY OFFICER WHO HOWEVER WAS FORCIBLY DISMISSED FROM IT’S RANKS AFTER HIS PARTICIPATION IN A FAILED COUP THAT TOOK PLACE IN 1935. EVER SINCE THEN HE WENT TO SELF EXILE AND EVENTUALLY END UP IN…….TUNISIA FIGHTING WITHIN THE RANKS OF FOREIGN LEGION!!! AFTER BEING DECORATED FOR HIS HEROISM THERE AND BY THE TIME THE GREEK ARMY FLED IN EGYPT, HE REJOINED IT AS A COLONEL. HE CREATED THE SQUADRON AND RUN IT IN SUCH MANNER THAT WITHIN A FEW MONTHS IT BECAME A FULLY OPERATIONAL AND RELIABLE COMMANDO FORCE. TSIGANTES DIED IN THE 70 s OUT OF CANCER IN ENGLAND.

PICTURE SHOWING A DETACHMENT OF THE COMPANY’S JEEPS WHILE REGROUPING SOMEWHERE WITHIN THE LIBYAN DESERT IN 1943. THEY TOGETHER WITH THEIR BRITISH COUNTERPARTS PLAYED AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN SPECIAL OPERATIONS ALONG THE INFAMOUS MARETH LINES. NOWADAYS HOWEVER, VERY FEW HISTORIAN UNFORTUNATELY REFER TO THESE BRAVE MEN.

AND SINCE WE CAME TO THE POINT OF DEALING WITH GREEK HISTORY TODAY, LET ME HELP YOU COMPREHEND A BIT MORE ABOUT OUR MODERN HISTORY HERE BY ATTACHING YOU THESE PICTURES WHICH REFERS TO OUR WAR WITH FASCIST ITALY IN 1940-41. AFTER ALL THE BASIS FOR SUCH COMMANDO UNITS AS THE SACRED SQUADRON WERE FIRST SET DURING THAT TERRIBLE BUT UNFORTUNATELY UNKNOWN TO MANY WAR, THAT MARKED THE TURNING POINT HOWEVER, OF W.W.II.
