Hi
If you need something for polish army in 1939, please contact with me.
I deal with my colleagues historical reconstruction since 2006, and I can help you with buying necessary items (uniforms, equipment, shoes, replica weapons) in Poland.
There is literally everything. I suppose at reasonable prices.
You can also buy something here:

I can help you some advise if you want

That is a very kind offer Krzysiek - Dziekuje bardzo! Although I have some friends in Poland who will try to find items for me, it is always good to have more contacts, especially that more people are becoming interested in re-enacting the Polish army of 1939 in the UK! Does your colleague have a website to see what he does?

Wladek - whereabouts are you in the UK? The three of us are hoping to be at the English Heritage Kelmarsh event over the 20th-21st July (link here - http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/daysout/events/history-live/introduction) but if you could get there then you could meet up with us for a chat? Alex - if you could get there then it would be great to meet you too!

Should check this forum more often :D . I'm up North, I did Kelmarsh once with the Far Setting Sun but none of the groups I am on the 'periphery of' were there this year. In fact we are not out much this year at all.


Well there is always Detling? If you could make it then just let me know in good time so I can see if I can get another pass from LHG First to Fight!


How very kind, unfortunately my September is fully booked this year.

I am afraid that most of the really good quality equipment and uniforms are manufactured by the same re-enactors and not by the companies. They unfortunately do not have web pages, because it is their side job.
I can recommend you the following persons:
1) Mariusz Szkup (1legion@op.pl) - manufacturer of perfect copies of the haversack, bag for gasmask, belts, pouches and other items made ​​of leather,
2) the uniforms - best solution is to hire a tailor, who will craft you a custom-made uniform. Currently, there is quite a big problem with access to quality wool fabric and good color. In Poland, however, there is several companies that produce a relatively large amount of average quality uniforms. For this reason, most of the reenactors use m.36 summer uniforms made of linen (not cotton). A few years ago, together with my colleagues we commissioned the production of linen fabric with excellent efects, allowing the unification uniforms of most reconstruction groups . Maybe this year will re-activate the production of the fabric.
3) M31 helmets - buy the allegro.pl items from the war, and make them a thorough repair. However, there are plastic copies available, but no decent reenactor does not use them.
4) boots - we use shoes Representative Company of the Polish Army, which - after removal of part fastened above the ankle (do not know what it's called in English) - are essentially identical to the pre-war. There are new and used shoes produced. I do not remember exactly where they were produced, but you can find them on the net, such as http://www.sortmund.pl/product-pol-228- ... rowej.html. As far as I know there is a two shoemakers who make to order copies of military boots, including Mr. Barski of Radomsko (price - about 650 zł).
5) backpack - there are indeed in Poland, "copy", but really poor quality. therefore, you should look at allegro.pl backpacks with Polish Army in the years 50-80. You can still find them. Only with cotton strips, never poliester !!
6) blankets - you can use World War II U.S. blankets, mustard-colored. Once we ordered the production of 150 replicas of blankets, but unfortunately already been distributed. Maybe some day we try to produce them again. Do not use gray blankets from the Polish Army after the war produced or Czech blankets.
7)mess tins - do not use aluminum canteens Polish Army manufactured after 1960, most have different dimensions. You should look for either the original pre-war mess tins or produced after the war. Usually they were made from zinc plated metal and khaki painted. It's harder to hit the post-war aluminum mess tins that have the correct dimensions. Try to find it on allegro.pl
8) canteen - Polish Army until now uses the same canteen, so there is no problem to find it.
9) military hats - try to contact with Artur Gniado Tutakiewicz (http://arturgt.dobroni.pl/blog/index.php?ID=1347). Maybe he works not to fast but he is really perfectionist.

I can help now with signs of identity (original pre-war punched hardware), uniform and boots cleaning kits (3 hand-made brushes and cotton cover) and copies of military linen towels (I think I still have a few)
