Waffen-SS Reenactment.

Post by KeepStatusQuo » 17 Oct 2017 23:46

Hello all,
I was wondering what would be required to pull a British Free Corps look with gear from the website epicmilitaria.com. I have a list that believe is all I need but then again, i do not know much in this region and am pretty much eyeballing it from the limited amount of pictures. So far I have selected:
WW2 German Waffen M43 Uniform Bundle
- M43 Waffen Tunic
- M43 Trousers
- Field Shirt
- German Army M43 Field Cap
- German EM Heer/Soldier Black Leather Belt
- Waffen SS EM Belt Buckle - Silver

SS Cap Insignia
- SS Cap Eagle (EM/NCO)-grey woven
- SS Cap Skull (EM/NCO) - grey woven

Tunic Insignia
- British Free Corps EM Cuff Titile
- British Free Corps Volunteer Shield
- SS Arm Eagle - grey thread
- Army Obergefreiter Rank Chevron - Silver/Field Grey

Accessories/Personal Items
- Waffen SS HBT Dot Peas Helmet Cover - Type 2
- Tunic Belt Support Hook - Black (x4)
- German SS Soldbuch
- German Army Dog Tag - WW2 Repro
- WW2 German Numbered General Assault Badge - 25

I know that I have not included Field gear, and that is because I know what I need for that.

If there is anything you think that I do not need or need to add to my list, please tell me. All thoughts are welcomed.

Hi, it isn't worth posting anything reenactment related here as it is relatively dead. I've toyed with the idea also, are you going to make it a field impression also?

Where's everyone interested in reenactment posting now?

If formed, this could quickly turn out to be the first re-enactment unit bigger than the original!

Please note comments re WW2! My own experience is coloured by hearing at a liviong history event a "Fallschirmjaeger officer" re-enactor briefing children about the Nazi world perspective. Hitler not a bad chap, just bad advisors; never meant harm to the jews. There really are limits to being "in character."

Most reenactment discussions are happening on Facebook. Units and organizations have their own pages, there are multiple pages for posting events. If you are interested in a period or unit, use the search tool.
