For the past few years ourselves, the Panzergrenadiers GD and 2nd Guards have put on an Ostfront battle.

Plans are afoot for the 2015 event which is provisionally booked for the 28th Feb - 1st March and we are looking for any good Russian groups to join us for the weekend at our site in Leicestershire.

The armourer will be booked in due course and more flesh will be added to the bones as the months progress.

So, if you're portraying Russian and hungry to get 2015 off to an early start at what usually is a very good little wing ding with the added dimension of a few lovely vehicles thrown in to spice things up, please get in touch and we'll get you up to speed.

Thanks
Neil.

The organising committee held a planning meeting last night and the weekend 28th Feb - 1st March was agreed upon.

Axis numbers so far should be around the 40 mark and vehicles confirmed as coming along so far will be an Sd.Kfz.222, Sd.Kfz.223 Fu, Citroen truck and assorted bike combinations. On the Russian / Partisan side, numbers are getting on for 30 and we should have a motorbike in attendance.

Time line will be 1943 to allow us to include Partisans into the scenario as a number of you have made enquiries about portraying this side of the conflict.

More to add in the next couple of weeks as things develop, but for now, here are some pictures of this years battle from the Russian perspective:

I hope that everyone got back from Op. Klarer-Weg safe and sound and is not aching too much today?

Thanks to all that came and took part in the event and made it what it was. I think it's safe to say the 2nd Guards and Thunder from Heaven / Das Heer Partisans gave us a right thumping on the whole - we'll have to try harder next year.

A few pictures are starting to surface already, so here are few to give the flavour of the event from the German perspective.

Neil.

On behalf of Thunder from Heaven, I would like to say thank you to Neil and GD for a very enjoyable weekend. Personally I know how much work has to be done to organise an event such as this.
Great to work with 2nd Guards, a really nice bunch or guys, and to Aide for being the boss. Same to the Partisans of Das Heer, as we had some nice conversations during the weekend.

Many Thanks to Neil and the lads from G.D. for a great weekend.

Only 2 of us from Das Heer were able to make it as Partisans, but it was nice to do something different and work with other groups that we don't normally interact with because of our time zones.

Well done to 2nd Guards, TFH and 2 lads from the Hampshires, Russian army and partisan working together, a very friendly bunch of guys all round.

Glad to hear you enjoyed yourself guys - it was a challenge at times, but i think everyone seems to have gone home happy. Very impressed with the efforts you Partisans went to to get yourselves looking proper for this, really added an alternative element to the weekend and certainly kept my lot on their toes. :D

Films are still off being processed so i'm waiting for the media storm to hit us, but Sergei from the Guards has been posting a load so here's one of Team Soviet:

I've finally got my new computer up and running and have had all the pictures that the Propaganda Kompanie took with their film cameras so uploaded the photos from Klarer Weg to the unit website last night. To see them please go to:

In the meantime, just a few to give an idea of the weekend from our perspective:

Once again thanks to all who came along and made this event the success it was. Hope to see you all over the course of the season for a catch up.

Neil.
