GERMAN AUTHENTICITY REGULATIONS
78. Infantry Division
Sturm Regiment 14
All participants must have correct glasses or wear contacts. Hair and facial hair must be of period correct style. All participants must be over the age of 18.
This event will have a functioning chain of command. You must have Event permission to portray an officer. If you have rank, you must have a realistic number of men under you. The reason for this is simple. Far too many people put on officers rank and show up thinking they can just tell people what to do. Very often they have no one, or far from enough men under them, to justify their rank. It is not only unrealistic, but it has been a pet peeve of many reenactors over the years because no one likes random officers barking orders at them. The event command is there to provide a good experience for all involved, a functioning chain of command helps ensure the event has a good flow.
