Morning all,

I thought i'd share some pictures from our most recent event - the Ostfront Private Battle which was held a few weeks back.

The weekend saw us up against the Russian 2nd Guards and working once again with our kameraden from the Panzergrenadiers. A healthy turnout from both groups was complimented by a nice selection of vehicles from both groups which led to the Axis forces being totally mobile bringing a whole new dimension to the weekend.

The event saw the debut of both the units now fully operational Skdfz.222 Scout Car and the latest addition to our collection of motorcycle combinations. We also welcomed our new Kriegsbrichter, Joe Ruddock to the group who shot many of the pictures in this gallery on period film cameras.

Thanks,
Neil.

I added a new article to the site last night about group member Simon Garner and his project to build a replica Sd.Kfz.222 scout car.

It's been a while so I thought i'd update the thread with some pictures from our last couple of events.

June saw us turn out for our first taste of the Chalke Valley Festival of History. Our display focused on the weeks leading up to the battle of Voronezh in June of 1942. As part of the display we opted for a rest and refit theme, displaying a mortar section in training, munitions dump, Stabs and communications and the Feldkoch preparing sausage for the men.

Next up was our annual trip to the History Live event at Kelmarsh Hall. The group enjoyed it's biggest ever turnout with 28 members in attendance. Although the weather played havoc with our display on Saturday, we were able to put on a morning parade with almost 50 men alongside of kameraden from the Panzergrandiers and also formed up together for the daily battles, which looked...nice :)

Both sets are up on the website, to see them please go to http://www.gdrecon.co.uk

Next up, we travel down to Damyns Hall this weekend where we look forward to putting on an Ostfront 1942 display with our counterparts from "Za Oboronu".

Just a few pictures to share from our gallery taken at Damyns Hall this past weekend. The full gallery can be found at:

http://www.gdrecon.co.uk/galleries/essex14/index.html

Once again a nice laid back show and it was good to have 'Za Oboronu' opposite us for the weekend to have the extra dimension of a Russian foe opposite us. We enjoyed crawling over your positions and looking for any State property that we could confiscate, thanks for allowing us the opportunity and for our new wash bowl :)

Next up a nice big joint display with 'Heeresgruppe Süd' at the Victory Show in early September.

Neil.

Morning all,

I've finally managed to whittle down our Victory Show gallery to a reasonable amount and uploaded the pics to the site last night, so I thought i'd share a few teasers with you all.

This year the theme was Operation Zitadelle and thanks must go to our kameraden from the GD Panzergrenadiers, Das Reich, Generalstab and Panzergrenadier 916 who all worked hard to try a bring a little bit of Kursk to Leicestershire for the weekend :)

Great show as ever and the perfect end to the public season for us, the icing on the cake was the recent news that the display scooped best in show which is something we're all very proud of as us 'Germans' never win anything.

Just a couple more private things to do in November and that will be us for another year - how fast did that go!

Very good Genosse - must say I do always really enjoy your photos and videos and they make excellent viewing for our "this is what Gitlerites look like" sessions at Young Pioneer meetings. ;-)

Morning all,

After almost 10 years of faithful service our old domain of gdrecon.co.uk is being retired in favour of an address that we feel is better suited to the group in 2014 and beyond. The change over is now complete and our new domain is up and running.

You can now find us at www.panzeraufgd.co.uk - please remember to update your links.

Thanks
Neil.

The group turned out for it's final event of the 2014 season a couple of weeks back for some refresher training, our AGM and end of year wing ding.

Soldiers were trained on fire and manoeuvre, the use of the MG34 & 42, mortars, section attacks, parade, marching and rifle drill by the units Offizier's and NCO's.

Our unit Kriegsbrichter was also on hand in his studio for portraits.

And that signifies the end of another season.

A cracking year for the group which seemed to start earlier than ever way back in January. It's seen some major highlights of us such as reaching 40 members, winning the award for best display at the Victory Show and acquiring our second Aufklärungs vehicle - an Sd.Kfz.223 (F.u.) which will be our Winter project and hopefully be ready to show in Spring alongside our Sd.Kfz.222.

We have another project which is due to commence in January which will further compliment our Kraftpark and fleet of Aufklärungs Abt. vehicles, but more of that when it gets underway.

So thanks to everyone we've had the pleasure of working with this year (friends both old and new) and we look forward to doing it all again next year :)

Neil.

Thats a really excellent flyer there Genosse - only just seen it, but love it! Picture is so good and the words describe what people are getting into just perfectly.

Your propaganda unit is given grudging respect from Moscow Centre - our own agit-prop unit has been liquidated for failing to match this output.

Long time friend of the group and filmmaker Dave Sinclair joined us for our yearly training weekend in November last year. Over the course of the weekend and more recently at our private battle in March, Dave took footage of the group in action and also interviewed members with a view to putting together this documentary style film.

I'm pleased to say that Dave has now worked his magic and the film went live on Sunday night, to see some of what life in the Aufklärungs is like, please follow the link to his YouTube page at:

Coming next, the pictures from our weekend at the Mapledurham at War event which we attended over the Easter weekend.

It’s been a while since I posted anything about the group so i thought i’d update to round the year off. First up are pictures from our recent photoshoot themed around actual events when GD moved into the town of Tomarovka in 1943.

We got lucky with a demolition site that we were able to get into and we once again enlisted the help of Nick Halling to work his photographic magic.

Last year we managed to pick up a Russian Gaz jeep with a view to converting it to a Stoewer Typ40. We’ve now made a start on our off season project for this year and we’re hoping to have the old tub ready to for the start of the 2016 season.


Image


Image

So, other than our training weekend and Christmas party at the weekend, that’s about us for 2015. Thanks to all who have worked with us and shared a laugh and a beer with us this season - we look forward to doing it all over again in 2016!
