LEARN IT MAY SAVE YOURS OR ANOTHERS LIFE
we are playing at war but the danger of Hypothermia and Frostbite are REAL
Normal body temperature in humans is 36.8°C (98.2°F). Hypothermia can be divided in three stages of severity.

* Stage 1

Body temperature drops by 1-2°C (1.8-3.6°F) below normal temperature (35-37°C or 95-98.6°F). Mild to strong shivering occurs. The victim is unable to perform complex tasks with the hands; the hands become numb. Blood vessels in the outer extremities constrict, lessening heat loss to the outside air. Breathing becomes quick and shallow. Goose bumps form, raising body hair on end in an attempt to create an insulating layer of air around the body (which is of limited use in humans due to lack of sufficient hair, but useful in other species). Often, a person will experience a warm sensation, as if they have recovered, but they are in fact heading into Stage 2. Another test to see if the person is entering stage 2 is if they are unable to touch their thumb with their little finger; this is the first stage of muscles not working.

* Stage 2

Body temperature drops by 2-4°C (3.8-7.6°F). Shivering becomes more violent. Muscle mis-coordination becomes apparent. Movements are slow and labored, accompanied by a stumbling pace and mild confusion, although the victim may appear alert. Surface blood vessels contract further as the body focuses its remaining resources on keeping the vital organs warm. The victim becomes pale. Lips, ears, fingers and toes may become blue.

* Stage 3

Body temperature drops below approximately 32 °C (89.6 °F). Shivering usually stops. Difficulty speaking, sluggish thinking, and amnesia start to appear; inability to use hands and stumbling is also usually present. Cellular metabolic processes shut down. Below 30 °C (86.0 °F), the exposed skin becomes blue and puffy, muscle coordination becomes very poor, walking becomes almost impossible, and the victim exhibits incoherent/irrational behavior including terminal burrowing or even a stupor. Pulse and respiration rates decrease significantly, but fast heart rates (ventricular tachycardia, atrial fibrillation) can occur. Major organs fail. Clinical death occurs. Because of decreased cellular activity in stage 3 hypothermia, the body will actually take longer to undergo brain death.

Hello,

I'm very interrested in coming too. What are you doing mainly and what is the dress code in terms of what can one not bring or is it pretty open being 1944.

As for weapons are you using blanks, airsoft, or anything one has so long as it's a WWII gun and goes with the uniform (For example a Gebirgsjäger wouldn't go around with a Japanese sub-machine-gun).

Cheers,

Arthur

Hallo Arthur

The time line is 1942/1943 and yes there is a dress code it was posted in the topic with the frostbite warning ,look for Alberts Toe
weapons will be Issued to you they will be deac unless you live in Sweden or Finland then you can bring a deac . German issue weapons are the type we use with the odd Finnish weapon used

It's a pity I have not been able to come since 2009 to this 1st class event :cry: but I will have to pleasure to join you again for the coming one: flights booked ! :twisted: Now it's time for me to complete my stuff in order to be well prepared.

Thanks a lot for coordinating such quality reenactment events that really make sense - spirit, quality and experience.

Bergheil and see you dear kameraden !
