Re: SS facial hair

There is an entry in the Soldbuch to indicate if the person wore a beard or not. From my research ( as I have a beard and I reenact SS ) medical dispensation was permitted to disguise disfigurement from wounds or other medical conditions of the skin.

Re: Camouflage of the German Stabszelt

Excellent pic,

I got a repro from Tentsmiths.. and had then put a sodcloth on the bottom of the walls, I am happy to see that the originals had them.

I Have been thinking of painting the tent as well, Mine is a field grey colour now.

Re: Is anyone checking their members?

Well that is bad form, and frankly not seen much in Canada, of course the community is far smaller here. and ever has it been so, I don't really perceive this as an issue provided that there is a concerted effort to improve.
