Re: Shot in the dark

Quite a lot of people, pretty cold, several major reenactment vendors, a few Soviets, one naval Japanese, and a smattering of other individuals like a Hungarian. A typical reenactment event with lots of American and German soldiers, however I was must disturbed by a tubby, ten-year-old kid running around in modern civilian clothes sporting an SS officer hat

Re: Shot in the dark

Thanks for sharing the images. I can tell you what is more irritating than that 10 year old is the 350 pound German, who is supposed to be representing the undernurished war weary combattant.

My old reenacting unit is the Third Panzer Grenadier. I am sure that they were there, as we went every single year as the main event. I may even still remember all of the vendors. Were you set up to sell/sign books? I remember that is the exact place I bought my first copy of your red book, back in 2003.

Ralph, Thanks for the plug for our 2nd Annual Fort Lee Military Collectors show on 25 May at the Regimental Club on Fort Lee, Virginia. It was a great time and we had the opportunity to see a few folks from this forum at the show. This year's show should be even better.

For those who are interested we set up a Facebook page the keep everyone updated on the show: http://www.facebook.com/FortLeeMilitaryShow

Here is a photo of Ralph and me at last years show. It has yet to be fully declassified.

Here is a shot from last year's show where you can see about 1/3 of the show area.

Here is another photo of last year's Fort Lee show where you can see Ralph's table with the large East German flag in the background.

Hello Andreas - Thanks for starting this thread. I will not be at the show, however I would be interested in what you see that is being sold that is related to Soviet and East German. Thanks.
