Sani, an honest question and not facetious in any way - if you're intention is to model real service so closely...why not join the Territorial Army and "do good" that way at the same time? My entire family is service orientated, between my father and grandfather they have accumulated over 60 years ...

Hi Wolfkin Digging in, marching and digging in was exactly what 98% of the groups did at this event, the other two percent consisted of the HQ group (the ones with the tents and truck) and our group who were tasked with recon patrols (an aufklarungs role - but hey) and so were too busy to dig in. Th...

Re: reenactment

Nice photos; indeed decent portrayal. No FARB in sight. Bravo ! However . . . . . .Unterscharführers did not lug an MG, while there was a Sturmmann nearby, who was not carrying anything. ;-) :-) HN Hi Haen Thank you for commenting, it means alot to us. I'm sure Tim (the Unterscharfurhrer) will have...

Well, I have just come back from a 36 hour living history tactical exercise. Aimed at doing exactly what alot of you guys want to see us doing. And for the most part, helps us to appreciate and learn a little bit about life for the German (and Russian) soldiers. Although not quite a week - 36 hours ...

Personally, I don't know what all the fuss is about. If people don't like it, don't take it up as a hobby. I'm sure many strive for accuracy. So what if others use it as a club to parade around in old uniforms? I mean, should all model builders, Risk and "Call of Duty" players be held accountable f...

I have to agree that within the hobby there are a few WALT's and Farbs, but within the past 3 years on the UK re-enactment circle (I dont know too much about the scene in the US) these people have been steadily pushed away - I havent seen a WALT in 2 years, FARBs are now members of the public who th...

Will the dog leads be made of synthetic materials or authentic leather? Furthermore, will the hunde have the regulation 'cut'? (for info on the regulation cut, visit http://www.dererstehund.com) Also, can the association of chair-born pie finders be amalgamated into 1176th postal company (assuming t...

Tom Not all "medics" were medical NCO´s or medical soldiers (San.Soldaten) with the medical specialist badge. Heer medical NCO´s had the badge on the right lower arm while Luftwaffe medical NCO´s had it on the left lower arm. A large percentage of Waffen-SS medical NCO´s were trained in Heer school...

Sani - do you have a daytime job and income? Yes? Do you have objections to them not caring as you do about authenticity? Yes? If you care as much as you say and want to get it as authentic as you say...why don't you walk??? For many of us re-enacting is about sharring our knowledge with the public...

Come now christoph, SS medics looked similar - but did not look "the same" as Wehrmacht medics. SS medical staff used diamond sleeve insignia on black backed wool with a white snake and staff - these were also applied to the M43 caps. Apart from that airborne medic he (Christoph) is right, the kit w...

Band of Brothers unterscharfurher greatcoat

I have for sale a greatcoat used in the television series "Band of Brothers". It comes with shoulderboards and insignia for an SS unterscharfurher - I know greatcoats didnt tend to have insignia on them by late in the war but this was an American TV series. Your chance to own a genuine piece of "TV ...
