Posted on behalf of Axis 44 members.

After a successful first season , Axis 44 are now recruiting enthusiastic individuals to join a new but progressive group
with a modern and fresh approach to re-enacting and living history.
Formed recently by experienced re-enactors and military enthusiasts, it's foundations have been built on strong team spirit with a focused core impression.

Portraying elements of the 1st and 12th waffen SS 1944/45 we decided to concentrate on the front line troops ,
a Zug/s of 25 to 30 with a realistic rank structure to reflect the number of individuals.

We have included a complimentary front line Funker/signals section to enhance our portrayal ,
along with various original and replica vehicles weapons and equipment.

A relaxed ethos is paramount , but accurate and quality uniforms and high standards of presentation are equally important.
We strive to maintain an enthusiastic environment and ensure each member is given true opportunities to enjoy there hobby.

As a team , we work hard at building on our success and are active in introducing new and fresh approaches to the
type of events we attend and the creative displays we present for the public.

If you are seasoned re-enactor or new to the hobby , and you feel we might be the right group for you ,
then please contact our recruitment team via e-mail axis44group@live.com
we will happily respond to any enquiry.

All we will ask , is that you leave your politics and frustrations at the door , and do as we have ,
decide which elements of re-enactment and living history are important to you ,
and will enable you to enjoy your hobby.

Thank you for taking time to read our recruitment message.

Kindest regards,

Axis44 members

Please don't take this the wrong way as its a serious question & not meant in any other way but in your write up you say "All we will ask , is that you leave your politics and frustrations at the door " and yet you fly two NSDAP party (political) flags at the bottom of your page & I just wondered why ?

Well for starters - the poster is posting on behalf of the group in question - rather than as part of it.

Also the flags may well be political rather than unit flags - but they would be used (officialy or not) by the units in question - as well as by many other units as national simbols.

All flags have political conotations - but you can't really tell the story without them. Should we leave everybody elses flags out ?

Thank you for your constructive post Gliderinf, in reply to 916matt.

Just to add and to clarify for 916matt,

Leaving your politics and frustrations at the door, refers to the in group fighting many individuals seem to thrive on, who meddle in there own politics creating harm instead of enjoying the hobby and having fun !! The type of re-enactor no group wants, and believe me , in my experience, unfortunately there are quite a few out there!!

In light of recent bad publicity regarding German reenacting perhaps a statement should be added that this group will not tolerate anyone who shares Nazi ideals or beliefs in their membership, unless that's not the case of course.

That's what I thought until he mentioned in-fighting.

Yeah my point exactly, declare that your group does not tolerate such beliefs, can't see why any SS group wouldn't have that in bold on their website or adverts. :?

All posts appreciated....

Thank you to the poster's of good wishes.....

A Political Disclaimer, on a recruitment advert, on a re-enactors Forum ?


The following is not a reflection on the group Axis44 , just my opinions and observations ..
We surely need some belief on here that.... not every German re-enactment group are 'Nazis' or extremists , especially when a recruitment advert is posted upon a Re-enactors Forum.
I personally have re-enacted the German soldat for many years, and with hand on heart , I have never come across a group that is extremist in it's political views or group ethos.
So I see no reason for adding any such disclaimer to a simple recruitment advert aimed at other re-enactors to see, upon a Forum that is also respected as distancing itself from adverse political views.

Axis44 do have the expected disclaimer/statement and professional announcements upon there public website,recruitment application literature etc,of which any applicants will be enlightened to.
Anyone new to re-enactment who apply will also be made aware of such statements.

to the other comments from other posters .......would have thought it would not need spelling out we are totally a none political group, on a WW2 reenacting forum ??

Have you ever seen a political group on a UK WW2 re-enactors forum ?? i aint :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

Yes but it's the public's perception that needs to be catered for, WE know (or at least I hope we do) that there is none of the political crap but if you don't put the disclaimer on your website the public may see you as a bunch of Nazi worshippers.
