Joeri, like I've said before, you do it right  ;D

I am going to do this too, but I need more than just me. A little "recruiting" for fellow civilians is in order.

SO, I guess this is an open call to everyone out there: if you are inclined to do European civilian impressions from WW2, let me know! I know of no organized group yet, only the loose network of friends, wives, etc that exists within each region. Here are the impressions I am personally interested in (and my thoughts on how they should be conducted):

-Displaced person (neutral): Basically, a citizen bystander of the war-torn land, home now destroyed, pushing a cart full of his most valuable belongings or hitching a ride by any means possible to get away from the front lines. This impression would be used mainly at tacticals to add background flavor to the event, or to even add confusion, and force the military from either side to deal with unarmed, innocent civilians! Children would make a great tag-a-long to the impression.

-Resistance: Just what it implies. Conducting subterfuge, guerrilla warfare, and aiding the Allies when possible. Could easily be disguised as a normal civilian or displaced person.

-Collaborator/informant: The opposite of occupied resistance. Helps the Germans with information gathering. Could also easily be disguised as a normal civilian or displaced person.

Imagination would dictate the personae, clothing, and disposition of the impression. The only authenticity regulations would be to try & speak at least some of the language which you are portraying, and to keep all clothing & ephemera to 1930's Europe. Old-style suits and proper hats for men, period dresses & hats for the ladies. Age and weight would be a non-issue, as of course you'd have people of all shapes & seasoning running around trying to survive.

Let me know!
