I met John who was a German Reenactor, I had been an American Army reenactor for almost twenty years. He talked me into trying German something I had been toying with for years. The C.O. of 116 Pz Gren Herr Krupa said I was a good reenactor and theywould love to have me as a soldat in their unit. So I ordered some very inexpensive stuff, I pair of wool trousers and jacket and a sleep shirt, a set of braces, (suspenders,) and Jack boots, also a stahlhelm and a 98K mauser rifle, so the first time I put the uniform on, I felt very strange, It was cool. I can't say that it would feel like that for you. I guess I have always secretly wanted to do this> I even went outside (it was 1 am and no one was around ) and I rode over to the plant where John was a nght watchman and talked with him about not letting me look like a farb. I did not even put the jacket (Feldbluse) on- just the pants and sleep shirt and boots and braces. when I finally had the jacket and headgear on it was an even stronger feeling. I felt like I was suddenly transformed back into the past in Germany in 1940, sort of becoming the heavy, the bad guy. the very profesional soldier with a reputation for being brutal and aggressive ok macho man if you like. but it wasnt just that it was being a piece of history. of stepping into the enemies shoes'. what can I say. It might not be that way for you. you would have to try it for yourself.
