ENGLISH - WHAT IS " FALLSCHIRMJÄGER REGIMENT 2 "
|A few friends
and collectors, founded in 1998, the friendships club" GERMAN VEHICLE
AND RE-ENACTMENT GROUP BELGIUM ".
These friends whose interests are anything from military vehicles to clothing,
founded at the end of 2005 a new battle group, namely "
2 / FALLSCHIRMJÄGER REGIMENT 6 "
But know there was confusion arise in the world of re-enacting, because know whe had 3 different names, so whe have decide to change ouer name again, starting from august 2006 into "FALLSCHIRMJÄGER REGIMENT 2".
This change in name was also necessary, because whe want to re-enact the early war periode (1939-1942), and this is not possible under te name FJD2/FJR6.
And this because FJD2/FJR6 was not formed until the beginning of 1943.
At the beginning of 2007 whe decided to co-operate with other re-enactment groups
From this co-operation a new society was born, namely "FRONTLEVEN 40-45". This society exist from different work groups, as well German as Allied forces
We have one and the same object, namely the search and restoration of vehicles and uniforms from World War II.
In many museums over the world we find material from this period. In Belgium there are regular military shows organised for collectors, from vehicles and objects from the period 1940 -1945. Anything connected with the war period from photographs, bicycles, uniforms, and clasp knives to tanks and pak-guns.
The members of " FALLSCHIRMJÄGER REGIMENT 2 "Are however a special kind of collector. Not in the least because it is the GERMAN side of World War II, that is their speciality.
We try to restore as much as possible to the original condition every single vehicle that comes into our possession. We have up to now a lot of unique pieces.
To find and preserve these collectors items, our members do not hesitate to go to outside the borders of Belgium in their quest to acquire wrecked vehicles or parts that can be restored.
But when collectors start something, restoration can be very costly and time consuming, but is a love, and a fully restored vehicle is the end product that we strive for.
On completion of such a military vehicle, it then requires as a final touch, a crew dressed in original German uniforms, which we find indispensable to complete the picture.
It is our aim to give these vehicles and uniforms a worthy respect as antiquities.
Foremost, for the group, is the preservation of World War II German vehicles, weapons, clothing and other objects relating to the period 1940 - 1945. We also participate in historical events and commemorations that are related to the military history of World War II. To this aim our group also organises trips to the historical battlefields, monuments and museums.
Further we participate in National and International military shows, where the German theme is welcome and we try to recreate scenarios relating to
World War II.
" FALLSCHIRMJÄGER REGIMENT 2 "demands high standards to get as close to perfection as possible.
DISTURBING ELEMENTS SUCH AS NAZI PARTY UNIFORMS AND FLAGS ARE STRICTLY NOT PERMITTED, AND MODERN CLOTHING IS ONLY ACCEPTABLE WHEN MILITARY CLOTHING AND INSIGNA IS NOT NECESSARY !!!
A correct attitude is imposed on the members as was expected in the best Prussian tradition.
When members on special events carry (de-militarised) weapons, the do so only to imitate the historical reality. Therefore, is it not permitted to use these weapons incorrectly. This rule is to be strictly adhered to at all times.
Behind all these activities there is a certain code of conduct to all members. " FALLSCHIRMJÄGER REGIMENT 2 " is not a paramilitary group. Also political conviction and conversation is not to be tolerated. The wearing of ALGEMEINE SS - SA - NSDAP apparel is forbidden.
