All over Europe and the US there are various re-enactment societies and clubs who turn out for displays with WWII military uniforms, weaponry, transport and equipment.

Are there any equivalents in Romania?

Cheers,

Sid.

The only "re-enacting" I am familiar with is done by several researches at the National Military Museum and during the Days of the National Military Museum they dress up in old uniforms.

Girls are allways looking good in uniforms. I would like to see romanian girls in romanian re-enacting WWII uniform. :)

Cheers,
Dan.

I just learned that in the National Military Museum a souvenir shop was opened. There are a lot of items of uniform & military equipment (caps, M.39 helmets, canteens – mostly German, gas masks, etc.) orders and medals, books. They also sell repros of WW2 uniforms.

They also make repro uniforms and medals (awards) at orders.

Here is a photo of my Model 1939 gasmask.

And the ammo pouch and "port-hart".

Nice objects they all seem to be in mint condition.
The double cartridge pouches are Czech from the 1930s.

Yes at the entrance down stairs where the cloakroom is.
But it was there before the Days of the National Military Museum (May this year).

I also have two coats from modern Belgium uniforms and a Romanian policeman's coat and hat from the RPR period. Unfortunately none of them looks like the WW2 Romanian uniform.

Are the orders and medals original or recently made copies? Thanks.

There are Romanian and foreign orders and medals on the Museum's shop. Some of them are marked as reproductions but for the rest I can’t guarantee that all are original.

It’s the same situation in all European Militaria shops or markets. As it is a great demand of military uniforms, insignia, medals & badges, particularly of the 3rd Reich period, many enterprising persons produced replicas of such kind of items and, unfortunately, sell them as originals. Only good specialists could sometimes identify the fakes.

During the last years it seems that a lot of fake Romanian Militaria, some of them very well made, arose on the market. So, you have to be careful.

Dani, the facts are different that you think. I  legally own, as private person, a  Kar98, a P08 , a C96...and others. .Is not easy to obtain a permit, but possible. So , lets find the helmets first! :D

Wow nice collection.

I have three questions for you:
1. Can you post some pictures?
2. Where did you bought them?
3. What kind of ammo you use for the Mauser 98k, 8mm or 7,92mm?

1. I don't have a digital camera.But the forum members Cantacuzino and Cipiamon took pictures with some guns, and they are free to post them.
2. I legally collect weapons from 1986. Some I found by myself hidden in several places,some are bought from several gunshops in Romania (never Bucarest).
3.I don't understand your question. the 7,92mm Mauser is the same with 8 mm Mauser ( different designations for the same cartridge), or you ask for other type of ammo.My byf is 8x57 mm caliber.
