Was this a W-SS display or a Heer one?
Unfortunately, I can't remember with enough certainty to say yes or no. As I said earlier, doesn't really float my boat and I haven't given it a huge amount of thought. Is this becoming an issue by any chance as I'm unaware that it has been previously?

Re: Allgemeine SS at war and peace

I have seen the odd one turn up. Bizarrely enough, usually in a trench system. Quite why someone in a trench would bring along a framed portrait of Uncle Adi, God only knows?
Me, I stick up the occasional 1940s nudey postcard. Of a lady of course!

Re: Hitler Jugend tent

'Fraid not. It's a piece of transparent cellulose sewn completely into the leather surround. Can't see any other use to it other than looking through.

Re: Could this work?

You would have had to convert that to rod brakes. Would have been one hell of a job. Keep your eyes open for a proper 1940's bicycle. They're not that expensive when you find one. And it doesn't matter where it comes from as the Germans knicked everyones' bikes. Ask the Dutch...... This is mine:- ht...

Re: Hitler Jugend tent

Dave. I'm shocked. "Zelt" is German for "tent." "Zeltbahn" means "tent piece."
Here endeth the Kraut lesson.

Now who's the pedant? :D

Re: Hitler Jugend tent

Oh yeah. You can just see her peeking out of the barn. And she's running now. Just need to get her legalised and I've got me a fun run-around. Anyway, enough about Trabis. Back to zelts.........

Hitler Jugend tent

A bit of zelt porn for those that are into that sort of thing (and I know a few of you are!). An original HJ zelt. Unfortunately, it's a bit too fragile for normal use. We had to put it up in our yard, because if the owner's wife finds out he bought it, he's dead meat. :lol: Out of interest, note th...

Re: Has anyone made a repro vehicle 'road legal?'

Interesting pub quiz trivia:- Under the build regulations it is possible to build a repro and register it as an "old" build. Minor draw back - it has to contain a percentage of period parts (forget exactly how many at the mo). So long as it conforms to this, it is numberplated and tested as to the a...

Re: Germans and Sandbags?

I think we've been here before. They used what was available. And most of the time in Europe that was trees. If you happen to be portraying the Atlantic Wall then by all means use sandbags. The only photos I've seen of them were taken by the seaside:- http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b126/timparson...

Re: Got sent this Article, "Nazi Officers will be arrested"

Non news story. Cause an offence and you are breaking the law. It's always been the case and no one in that article is talking about changing anything. The article (despite the rather sensationalist headline) is actually fairly balanced and does mention, in passing, context. So, go to an organised e...

Re: Never Surrender!

Oh yes, and I've just noticed his bread bag! Completely flaccid. And we used to have huge lectures from Grenadier Heeder about the perils of flaccidness.

Yep, all our lardy arses were laying around "dead." We're old, we can't run very far.........
