Great! What kind of advice do you want? Do you have uniforms or other equipment? How many members are in your “unit”?

For the beginning I suggest to read my post ( http://www.worldwar2.ro/forum/index.php?showtopic=2360&st=15 ) in order to have an idea about the basic requirements for such an activity.

If I'm not blind :blink: you are 12, your msn identity is "dobitocu22" (don't want to translate that in English). So until you will be able to show me an ID card you can continue to play CoD2 and buy plastic rifles. After you will be 14 that you could start dreaming of participating at reenactments, not tot to mention creating your own group. Until you will reach 18 you would have changed 10 uniforms, not to mention boot pairs.

Probably all those 25 members (are your class mates and friends from your block) all aged 12 that means that in reality you are half that number to compensate for the size... :lol: .

Now seriously. At your age you can't be part of a reenactment group unless one of your parents is member and even so you won’t be able to be a full soldier because of your are to small to wield a rifle. So if you create a reenactment group with you friends you won’t be able to participate at any reenactments because you are all too young.

mihnea is correct; even in the US insurance requires you to be 18 to hold a rifle, 16/17 with a parent present or legal guardian with signed papers and any younger no weapons at all, mostly courrrier, ammo carrier, radio, etc.

Messerschmitt,

Your enthusiasm is very impressive, but as Mihnea and Ralph said, to be a reenactor imposes a lot of responsibilities. You have to understand the period and try to fit into the old times military life. You have to learn military regulations and, when in action, to accept to obey your superiors’ orders, some of them not very pleasent for a young person (to have a haircut and shave the fancy moustache or beard, to abandon the earrings, bracelets or rings, etc. ). It’s also an expensive hobby as you have to acquire the uniform, the equipment and (hopefully) the weapon, to participate at training execices and shows, etc. But most of all, the reenactors handle edged and fire weapons and explosives and have to be careful to not wound themselves or someone else.

In most reenactment groups young people between 14-18, participate at reconstruction shows only accompanied by their elder brothers or parents, and are not allowed to use fire weapons.

If you are 12, you may start your “reenactor career” by participating at military shows as spectator, collecting items of equipment and informing yourself about the period and unit that you would like to join or to set-up.

Oh that's very good... I'm very happy to hear that... B)

Unfortunately our group has no plans for a WWII event in 2007; we are going to have only some WWI and independence war events. Therefore we would like to participate to the events organized by your group in 2007. :D

All this being said what is your group planning this year, some living history events or some reenactments and were are they going to take place? :huh:

Can you show me some pictures of the equipment you have gathered until now? :huh:

Correct me if I am wrong but are you saying that everything you said in your pass
posting was a lie?
If so,why?
There is no need too test the members of this Forum as to whether they believe what you say.
Being Honest and truthful in what you say is important!

And if you want to reenact do not go around and tell your fellow reenactors a bunch
of fake storys or you will get a reputation as a story teller.
Now if you post anything in the future on this Forum can we believe you or not?
