One or two pictures surfaced of me this year..... Caught unawares.... I thought I'd get this forum back on track a bit and post them. I have to keep saying - a bit of dirt here and there adds to what you look like not takes away..... What do you think? (seperate thread maybe?)

Wow! Is a Swede wearing a Waffen SS uniform considered a "Swede conversion"?

Daniel and Von Schwerin both look very genuine.Von Schwerin got that real desperate officers look when almost everything is gone and Daniel looks just like waffen-ss soldier should look.

Here is me in rain, after one night sleep in tent without stove (0-3 celcius, continous stormy winds and rain) and looking forward for another night in tent without stove...

Lessons learned:
1. No too small shoes, they get even smaller when wet.
2. Woollen overcoat is warm even if it´s wet.
3. Woollen items get really heavy when wet.
3. Get more cognac next time. The smile on your Kamerads face is worth it when you offer a shivering guy a sip.
4. Make sure you dont break zipper on the sleepíng bag at first night.
5. Afterwards is nice remember even if it gets little rough sometimes.

Looking forward to our next weekend in the woods!
And thanks once again Joel especially and other members of our little group!

Heh Ville, are you wearing a late-war M44 greatcoat, with a complete wool lining? If so, is that coat an authentic piece or a repro?

Ps. great photo and tips! ;)

Hey! Thanks!

Its authentic, I got it without buttons which I added later when I got a matching set.
I have had it for severals years now.
I dont really like taking original stuff out(too many hazards), but this was a special occasion.
I should buy a repro one (regular M36 or 40 from Sturm) for these kind of things.
It is still at the balcony where I put it to dry a month ago... (also lack of space inside my apartment)

Ps.Here is one of the earlier ones.
"Waiting for the verdict of Belgian resistance jury in winter 1944-45"

Exactly, the perfect combination surferboy!
:)
But the uniform is NOT a swedish conversion, It´s a Janke.

...and Daniel looks just like waffen-ss soldier should look.

Thank´s a lot, the best comment a reenactor can get!

Oh and yes I have been told off for not wearing a stahlhelm as per the regulations ( I now wear one at all times when riding)
