BAttle group south / Die Grupp film in Germany

Postby rommel on Wed Sep 17, 2008 12:20 am

lads
Bgs were recently approached by German film company to take part in a film aboutthe life of Rochus Mische , the only surviving member of the Hitler bunker , he was the radio operator and his character was briefly seen in Der Untegang / Downfall as he turned off the radio in the bunker when it was all going pearshaped at the end .
BGS and Die Grupp accepeted the invite to germany to film the film . The German embassy were extreemely in getting the necessary paper work and letters / permits for the group to travel and import the uniforms and kit required for the film . They could have done no more for us and our thanks to the german Ambassador for all his help . Having made the enquiries and backround checks on BGS wwe were received with flying colours and all stops pulled out for us .
The filming staged a massive opening display of the polish invasion , involving many many vehicles , motorcycle outfits , trucks , cars , horses , paks , armour , fantastic display. The famous border crossing was reenacted and all our men and die Gruppe had a time of their lives .
BGS and Die gruppe received noteworthy praise form the director on their standard of reenactment , approach , commitment and professionalism and that is why they will now discuss doing the normandy scenes in Ireland in the near future . Well done all and we will post more links . footage and photos soon as it comes in ,

here is a link to a clip made by Jaeher ( Ray) from Die Grupp who was in germany on the set of the new film , Witness , the life story of Rochus Mische . BGS and Die Gruppe were asked to come and take part in this and did so with great results .
Thanks Colm , RAy and lads for everything , yet again a great example of what can be done together ,

thanks to bgs for inviting some members of wargroup along for the flim. i must say it was a great experince to take part in this flim.
although i had to dress in a different unifom than my normal one.

being there with loads of re-enactors protraying the invasion of poland was a bit scary (i wanted to open up on them then relised i was one of them :D )

the members of wargroup who where in attendence had a great time and where well looked after by the members of BGS and Die Grupp.

thanks again for the oppertunity to travel to germany for this flim. although the next time i see ye on set i will be back in my normall drab.

thanks again colm

Kampfgruppe Irland ........ an unstoppable force .........i think those pics tell their own story . Quality groups and quality reenactment .
The film company will fim here for the Normandy scenes and BGS and Die Gruppe will supply the vehicles and men , and we will also hopefully have SGNorrd on board next time . We will also need an additional 20 - 30 men so we will send out invites to our kameraden from Kompanie 1 and Soldat44 members when the time comes .
Jock we will make you famous yet .............

Also, forgot to mention, the whole production looks great.
Well done on what was undoubtedly a significant achievement.
And winning approval from the German embassy is a nice pat on the back.

Le meas,
Billy.

hi all
dont forget there was some members of wargroup invited along for the experience.

wargroup will be doing the allied section proud when the production comes to doing the allied parts of the flim.

the whole munster military vehicle and re-enactment group will have a strong involment in the flim.

once again a job well done to all who went to germany.
