Yes, But they can not openly wear the swastica or SS runes. Even being in German uniform in publik is very much discouraged. Those that are in
uniform in publik are GIs & an occasional Brit.
We used to have an occasional actual battle, but it was always on a US military base. The ones I went to were at Hoenfels. Very few of the Germans had functioning weapons so these were supplied by GIs who could own them. We also got MG 1s/blanks from the Bundeswehr. The Germans couldn't even buy blanks so these also had to be supplied by us. a couple of them who had carbines were overjoyed when I handed out blank adapters & blanks because these were not obtainable anywhere in Germany - and the blanks were German surpluss readily available in the US. I had brought them over.
We also set up displays at a couple of the US Kasernes durring the open house weekends that were held "in the Good old days." Again we could be in full uniform with insignia visable because the Polizei had no authority
We often got lots of appreciative comments from the German civilians and Bw about our uniforms and displays. I was always Fallschirmjäger.
I would be suprised if things have gotten any better! :(

German Coastal Artillery

Hi Guys, we are a brand new unit based in France (Haute Savoie area) portraying Coastal Artillery. We have people from Germany, France and the UK (Jersey mostly).

We attend events in Europe (Belgium was the last one) and our next one will be in Jersey this weekend (23rd October at Corbiere - come see us!).

We just wanted to do something a little different and KM "Marines" seemed like a good idea. We are a branch of the USA-based unit and at least once a year we all join up in the States to have one big event. We are always looking for new recruits looking to travel and do something a little different. Our sister unit in the USA has the famous fully-live firing 88 which is a beauty. And yes members get the chance to come and play with it!

Check out http://www.marineartillery.com for more info and photos. I'll post bang-up-to-date photos after this weekend.

Cheers, Simon.

Kriegsmarine Küstenabteilung Nord-KKA Nord

The KKA-Nord is looking for people in Ontario Canada interested in re-enacting Kriegsmarine Coastal Artillery.

Our members wished to do something that is often overlooked in studies of WWII and a Kriegsmarine Coastal Unit seemed like a good idea. We are a northern branch of the USA-based unit, and we hope that at least once a year some of us will join up in the States or travel here to gather for living history or tactical-based events.

We are always looking for new personnel looking to travel and do something a little different. We are recruiting people from North America and Europe. We hope you will join us. Many thanks for your time and efforts.

Why isn't it realistic ? The Waffen-SS fought on every front except North Africa. Besides....it's not like there are thousands of participants at an event. Even if there were thousands the battle portrayal would certainly be authentic if one was representing a Waffen-SS battle.

In reenacting you do what you find interesting. You have much to choose from. Personally I've always had a long-term interest in the Waffen-SS. Besides....I love those camouflaged smocks you find the HEER guys wanting to wear but in keeping with their impression, can't (in most cases). Besides...if one is HEER and just would love to be wearing a smock...why not come over to the Dark Side ? Hehehehehehehehe.......

BTW....LAH.
