    Tom, I too have just begun to collect "Bundeswehr" militaria, see my threads in the steel helmet and collections sections, I am hoping that a dedicated Bundeswehr/DDR section can be started here on this forum, this may happen in the near future.....as for re-enactment groups I know of none in the U.K. (that doesnt mean that they dont exist, I havnt heard of any), please post your Bundeswehr tunic and militaria ! Heres a section of my collection......
    Prost ! Steve.

    Tom, thats a great start ! I see you have mostly flecktarn from 88' on, love the P1 ! (I am assuming it is not a P38 !)...you just have to surf the net and frequent your local markets and militaria dealers, I have a broad across the board collection, from 1958 "Filz" tunic to M826 Kevlar helmet and everything inbetween ! you just got to search.....heres some common, inexpensive arm badges, they display well. Prost ! Steve.

    Hi Steve, welcome to the forum!

    I am very active on the re-enactment scene in the UK and I am not aware of any specific Bundeswehr group/s. I do see the occasional person in BW kit, but these are vehicle owners who has kitted themselves out to match their vehicles.

    But I am sure someone could start a group and get interest going.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Adrian,

    Many thanks for your comments. I am one of the vehicle owners (radio-equipped Unimog 404 and VW181) and more or less do what you indicated - dress to match the vehicles when I set up and operate working radio station displays. It would be great to start a small group in order to expand such displays.

    Next year, I have been invited to provide a working comms display / BW liaison team for part of the Harrier field display at the RAF Cosford airshow. Would be great to have a few others along.

    If anyone is interested, let me know here or send a p.m.

    Cheers

    Steve
