Well after finding a source for wool and working with Dragos decided to get this started in the US.

website: RRA 9th Infantry Division

Please give me feedback on the site to make corrections. Would like to add section of commands, structure and rank in the future. Working on finding suppliers for items right now.

Also, Dragos might need to order some of that wool because I already have emails asking on how to get the uniform from people here in the US.

Rhaught,
I went to the website and I think you did a great job putting it together and I am ready to become a unit member!
If there is anything which I can do too help let me know.
As you know Iam already equipt and uniformed as a romanian soldier so that should help alittle.
Now all we need is the eastern front events to return!

Very nice site! Simple and effective. With more material added when your group grow, this will be a very interesting site! Wish I was in the US, so I could join!

I think it will be a little complicated to cross the USA-Canada border with a VZ-24!!! On the top of it, I don't have a car!

Part of reenacting is helping one another participate in this hobby and do not let the rifle or the car stop you from reenacting.
The vz-24 rifles are very cheap here in the u.s. so buying a second rifle for you too use is no problem.
For many years I had too take a bus to the reenacting events and although it was
not my first choice too travel I was able to reenact and so long as you have someone too meet you at the bus station you will be okay.
As far as I know there are on eastern front events being held for the rest of the year so this give you some time too get yourself uniform and equipt.
Take some time and think about it,we are here to help.

Just got back from a beach invasion event on Lake Erie. There are some more events that I am trying to get information on such as one in Massachusettes and Virginia!

Rob,

I still have the photos and little movies in QuickTime (15 seconds or less) which I did when I met you at Fort Mifflin, near Philadelphia, on April 17, 2004!

Florin,

Thanks for letting me know. You can post the pics on the forum I think. Maybe doing Romanian might get you into the hobby since there isn't too many events to go to for Eastern Front. Most events deal with France to Germany (44-45). Do you still have my email? Live in NYC now and not Princeton, NJ.

Dragos,

Will have pics taken for this event for sure. Will have them on the website for the unit so everyone can just go there to see them. There are a total of 5 who do Romanian but looks like 2-3 of us will make it there.

That's a Chang Jiang CJ-750 converted into a BMW R71.

The Chang Jiang CJ-750 is a Chinese copy of the Russian IMZ M72 (can be found many times in Romania with BMW R71 papers) that is a copy of the BMW R71. CJ750 is style in production today and many are used in reenactments across the world.

Well, your explanation should have priority, as I trust you in being a much better expert in motorcycles than me.
Here there is another photo - a detail:

Click on it!

To joke a little, I already knew that at least the spark and the supply cable for the spark could not be originals from WWII.
