    Default 63rd Guards Rifles in Sweden

    Hi all!

    Seems like a great forum this!

    I am Ben Rosander and Iīm with a Swedish re-enactment group the "Military History Society" in Sweden. We portray the RKKA 63rd Guards Rifle Division and the WSS Nordland Regiment. Check out our website at: MHS

    If you recall, Ade, we met at Beltring last summer (I was with my girlfriend Susanne). Say hello to Les from us! Unfortunately we couldnīt make it to Nikolskoye event this year either, but we heard it was really good - as always.

    Some pictures from our recent events:










    Cheers everyone!

    Ben Rosander (Ljt. Sergej Ivanovitj Rossonov, 63rd GRD, Re-enacted)

    As I heard in Sweden is impossible to make re-enactment due of forbidden deactivated weapons?

    This year I want to go to Beltring, and if I go with my uniforms, can I take a part in reenactment?
    Only the problem that I will go without my gun

    Hi Dimas, at Beltring there are lots of stalls and we do a small display but there is no battle re-enactment. I would recommend you come to "Military Odyssey"

    Military Odyssey - Home page

    This is the biggest and best LH event for RKKA re-enactment in the UK. You would be very welcome to display with 2nd Guards Rifle Div. We have comrades coming over from Russia and there is a mock battle each day.

    Hi Ben, I think Sue sent us the pics of you with the B17. Duxford is great!

    Cheers, Ade.

    Dimas, in Sweden, you just have to a permit to own deactivated guns, but we use guns converted to blank-firers or live weapons with blank firing devices on (which also have to have permits for, of course).

    Next week we will have a big event in southern Sweden including our group, a german group caller 2nd Panzers and some 25 "real" russians from Kaliningrad (who visited us last summer too).
