Hey man my name is Carson and I've been interested in German reenacting!
I talked to a guy named Kevin Barrett about it and he told me to send a email to you. I am
16 and have been collecting since I was 10. I don't mind doing whatever position you put me
in, I'm just interested and would love to join. If you could email me back that would be great Thanks!!

It's worth noting that many living historians will simply smear their uniform with mud in an attempt to look "the part." What they fail to realized is that their soiling pattern has only one layer and in uniformly dispersed by their hands. This photo is evidence of what the German soldier looked like after several days of living in trench conditions and with the soldier trying (in vain) to keep his uniform and gear comparatively clean. Given the amount of mud in the trenches, becoming muddy was inevitable and was unevenly layered and dispersed.
