Interested in Grossdeutschland, the German Army of WWII and the conflict on the Ostfront?

To join our unit you must be able to spare at least 5 or 6 weekends a year, have the means to get to our nationwide events, the money to fund your hobby, a reasonable level of fitness, a willingness to learn, get on well in a group environment and most importantly a genuine interest in the German Army of WWII. Recruits can join the unit from the age of 18 years old.

In return you will receive membership to one of the largest and most well established German Army re-enactment units in the UK. You will also gain access to some of the UK's premier re-enactment events as well as group training weekends, private battles, magazine, film & TV work and the receive the groups bi-monthly 'Die Feuerwehr' newsletter.

We are always on the look out for new members to swell our ranks, so if you fancy the portrayal of a Grossdeutschland Shützen on the Eastern front during the early to mid war period, please get in touch by filling out the form below and we'll get back to you as soon as we can - we reply to all questions.

Before you fill in the form we do have an entrance policy, and there are some things you need to be aware of.

  1. NO NAZIS. We are an unpolitical group and will not tolerate any form of political extremism..

  2. You must be able to attend at least 5 events a year on our calendar. We do public living history shows, public battles, and private battles. This is a commitment hobby, attending shows simply means getting the most out of your membership.

  3. It can be expensive. We have kit which we can lend out on a short term basis, but really you have to think in terms of the basic kit setting you back about £1000 and you having it together within the first 12 months of joining. Everything you will need is comphrehensively explained in our illustrated new starters pack and you will be guided through the process by the groups NCO's.
