    What a researcher, should you not start doing some research before starting playing soldier!

    Nothing particularly interesting about a group of individuals who, of their own free will, turned their back on their country, friends, family and Democracy to help prop up the most abhorrent regime this planet has ever spawned - why anyone would dress up and 'be' one of them is beyond me.
    A member on a forum you moderate states that the SS are 'true heroes', sorry mate but I'll need a lot of convincing on that one!

    Look at what you are touting and your user name
    This forum is not hostile.

    cant imagine any forum, with any credibility, would respond any more sympathetically. The ss was a monstrous arm of a monstrous regime. You're in Canada man the ss excetucted no less than 150 Canadian prisoners in the days after D-Day. Under Kurt Myers' (12th ss) direct orders (if not by him). That is the easiest atrocity to point out there are millions of executions with these guys all front and center. Apparently this can't be said often enough. who would even agree to re-enact with them is maybe a question of importance here?

    A dear friend of mine who fought in the war had benign feelings about the Waffen-SS...until he saw what they did to Belgian civilians in December 1944. After that, he was far less inclined to be even remotely civil to any that he captured and far more likely to bounce a rifle butt off of their head if the SS prisoners gave any lip back to him. To the average captured German soldier, he said he was always civil and treated them exactly as proscribed.

    Sounds like a good bloke, your friend. Say hello from a Limey from across the pond.

    I would forget the representation of a highly decorated SS general and go for the average soldier sitting dirty unwashed in a hole in the ground.
    The nicely tailored uniforms, medals galore, cuff titles, polished boots etc that is more an ego trip than history but it depends on how you want to do it.

    A friend of mine from Australia sends me photos which are a pure joke guys doing senior SS officers , so many decorations that Captain Bertorelli would be challenged by them.

    Sorry but your need to "do" a senior SS general does not inspire me.

    Ok, he's pottered off now.

    So what did an SS General's ID disc/dogtags look like?

    I'm guessing exactly the same as an enlisted man's or officer's?
