Interesting short film about the little known (outside of Scandinavia anyway) Danish Brigade, who were raised, trained, and equipped in Sweden during the German occupation of Denmark.

The film is in Danish, but is quite interesting to watch anyway.

There's actually someone over here planning on starting a reenactment group portraying this unit. He's having a bit of trouble locating a source for repro uniforms though. Does anyone here have any recommendations as to who could make uniforms based on photos of originals?

Cheers
Joe

It is rather difficult.
You will need the battledress like uniform, in the Swedish 1939 grey.
I've been planning re-tailoring a patter 1958 wool uniform instead of making one from scratch.
It is the same wool, however the 1958 uniforms are still plentiful and inexpensive.

There exist no such thing, as repro uniforms for DANCOM.

(p.s. hvem er det der planlægger at lave en Brigade gruppe her til lands. Det ville jeg da gerne høre mere om.)

The guy who is trying to organise it is called Claus Alstrup Nielsen. He's made a website:

What is the 1958 pattern uniform? Is that the updated Swedish M/39 uniform? Have you done any research on the Brigade's uniform? Is a conversion possible?

The M/58 pattern unifom was made as both a new item and by converting both M/39 uniforms and even M/39 overcoats.

"Standard" M/58 uniform;

http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/F%C3%A4ltuniform_m/1958

The M/39-58 was the conversion of existing stocks of M/39 uniforms to meet the M/58 standards.

Thanks for the answer. That's the tunic I often see advertised as being like WW1 German!

Conversion and conversion :lol:

With a bit of re-tailoring it should be doable. There is a lot of excess fabric, that would easily make a couple of pockets and shoulder boards.
Got an original pair of shoulder boards and "Danish" style buttons, produced in Sweden during the war by Sporrong in Stockholm. Standard button, with the three lions and nine hearts, but in the "grey" colour as the standard Swedish buttons, and not in brass as the M23 uniform.
