ABOUT Leibstandarte 39 / 45
Leibstandarte 39 / 45 are a relatively new living history re-enactment group created by long established and experienced re-enactors. Members are from all walks of life but sharing the same mutual interest in the WWII front line German fighting soldier and the more general conflicts of that historical period. Not satisfied with just reading and collecting militaria , we decided to take it a step further and through the wearing of uniforms , weapons and equipment , and the owning and operating of military vehicles , and by attending public and private events and shows , we began to re live the life of what it would have been like to be a fighting soldier.
We regularly attend events across the UK where we aim to educate and entertain the visitors with our impressive displays and vehicles. The group and many of it's members are often requested to assist in film and t.v. work and even arranging and managing WWII military events and battle recreations with impressive pyrotechnics !
Although our impressive displays are educational , they are also engageing , allowing visitors up close to vehicles and equipment , and encouraging people to ask members questions on what we do and who we portray .
Visit our EVENTS page to see where we will be displaying throughout the year , we could be at an event near you ! Do come and see us , you will be made very welcome !
The group has a vast array of weapons and equipment and some very impressive original and replica vehicles that attend most events. Visit our VEHICLES page to see the various types of vehicles our members own and operate.
We are flexible within our portrayal covering WWII conflicts from 1939 through to 1945 . At events we alternate our period of portrayal and display to enable us to educate visitors more comprehensively.
We aim for the greatest of accuracy in everything we do and set ourselves very high standards to do justice and honor those we portray.
