Saturday 25th of November 2006, some members of the 6th Dorobantzes and 4th Artillery reenactment groups have participated at a film shooting session on a WW1 theme. The TV channel ”Realitatea TV” has produced a short film for a broadcast about weather “Saptamana de vreme” illustrating a few lines of a soldier diary who fought in WW1. We brought our uniforms and equipment and borrowed some rifles from the Military Museum. Cristian also brought a few from his collection.

It was a very nice experience even if the shooting session was 13 hours long, we had to make up as coal miners, to dust our uniforms and mud our boots or to stay motionless under a downpour man-made rain. The short film will be broadcast on Sunday 3rd of December 2006, at 18.45, on “Realitatea TV”.

A few shots of this session:

Hallo Keppi :D

just a quick question with regards the pictures, is the young lady dressed as a typical medical personal for WW1 and if so was it usual for medics to carry ammo pouches??

Kevin in Deva. :D

Hello Kevin,

The lady is one of the most devoted and ardent member of our historical association. She is also a real hunter, with a lot of trophies, and a weapons collector. In our group she has the rank of an infantryman private, so she carry the normal equipment for her job (cartridge pouches, entrenching tool, bayonet and haversack).
For this film she received a red cross armband and she played the role of a medical orderly.

Have you learned about the future WW1 reenacting show in Brad, on 11th of August 2007? (http://www.worldwar2.ro/forum/index.php?showtopic=3722).
Brad is only 30 kilometers north from Deva, so you could easily come if you want.

Hallo Kepi :D

thanks for the information with regards the young lady and the Red-Cross Armband, and also the info with regards Brad, I know the location of the railway station well, the building is a fine example of Austro-Hungarian style architechture, it is also located very near to the military barracks in Brad.

The only thing that will prevent me from going to Brad will be if I am in Ireland with my wife and children as I have not been home for 4 years and have to visit my 6 brothers, and as much as I love military history, family come first.

By the way the 11th of August is also my birthday!!!! :D

Wishing you and all your re-enactors a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2007.

From Kevin in Deva. :D

The show in Brad it’s not a reconstruction of a particular battle but simply a demonstration of a WW1 confrontation somewhere in Europe. So every WW1 reenactor is welcomed.

According the scenario of the show, an WW1 “armoured” train of the Allied troops arrives in front of the railroad station (a nice example of a late 19th century Austrian architecture), which is defended by Central Powers troops. The Allied troops get off the train, storm the “enemy” positions and finally occupy the station. Then all troops, friends and foes, get up the train and go to the city center where a commemoration ceremony is planned. In the evening the fraternization of the former enemies with beer and sausages will end the day. The “troops” will be quartered in big military tents.

Even if the doughboys never fought on the eastern front you are most welcomed to join the Allies troops and play an active role in the “battle”.

By the way, Kepi :D

I dont think Brad qualifys as a city :P its a lot smaller than Deva, has about 3 resturants, some bars, old train station, a military barracks, a GOLD museum, a couple of schools and a small collection of blocks.

But the locals are real friendly :D

So, I see the outcome of the 'battle' is already decided... :blink:

A reenactment show it’s not a real battle and in most such events the actors must respect the scenario in order to avoid injuries among participants and public. There is a strict schedule of the ignition of explosive charges and the minimum distance between the confrontation lines must be strictly observed all the time. The blank ammo could be dangerous at short range and hand to hand fight with edged weapons (bayonets) must be avoided.

The most important message of such a reenactment show it’s to commemorate the soldiers, both friends and foes, who bravely fell for their countries and not to celebrate victories. The reenactors who play the role of vanquished armies should not be offended as they commemorate the bravery of their ancestors.

You may note that our group has participate at several reenacting shows, at Komarom and Fort Mogosoaia, in which we accepted to play the role of the defeated side and we did not feel offended at all.

I think the primitive satisfaction to defeat/humiliate another team or nation should be given up to football hooligans.
