It's a shame that SS units are not allowed to go to this private battle, as far as I can see no public will be there and therefore no offence caused to anyone. I have done private battles at this site before and only saw one dog walker and dog. Maybe the NWW2A need another vote on allowing SS to attend there shows and events. I have had it first hand from the lad organising the event, that it was the commandant of the site who asked for no SS, however I bet he has no idea what the difference is if all german units in camo. Poor understanding of German units and rewriting of history springs to mind.

Agree ,its unfortunately the perception people have of the SS .Until people are educated in what role the SS played (take out of the equation the connection to the camps etc ) its always going to be the same , especially at the moment with all the coverage of the 70th Anniversary of the liberation Auschwitz .

I being a member of the NWW2a and doing the odd event, I myself cannot see the problem with peadot camo etc .As someone mentioned the bringing together of Northern groups, working together and sharing knowledge would be a bonus, instead of the us and them attitudes some do have , as far as the Private battle goes as already mentioned ..........who is there to offend ?

I am surprised that anyone is surprised about pointless ill-founded prejudice toward those who portray SS. Ever since I started with the 7th SS in the late 80's it existed' with idiots in the BRA, LHA and the MVT and all their narrow minded uninformed nonsense and so it continues. I and those I re-enact with couldn't give a toss. The Klu Klux Klan's hats have points, which is more than can be said for anything any of these sad and pointless people have ever come out with.

Without starting an argument. Couldn't those who portray ss come along without ss insignia on?

Another point. Every army had bad soldiers however history has taught us that acceptance is key, I do understand however that it is not everyone's view!

Interesting, I'm sure the public and government bodies like the MOD would not allow the perceived racist KKK into their venues, it's well known the SS where the epitome of the Nazis who where racists, no?
