The 9th Re-Enactment Society is group of dedicated hobbyists who have a common interest grounded in the Second World War. Our members live in the eastern parts of Pennsylvania, all over New Jersey, the southeastern parts of New York, and the northern areas of Virginia and Maryland. We constantly seek new resources and information to improve our impression, and are always looking for new members that fit the bill.
Our mission is to portray the life of a German combat solider assigned to the 9th Waffen-SS Panzer Division Hohenstaufen as accurately and safely as possible. We strive to put forward the most realistic impression that we can, and to keep the memory of WWII alive.

WWII Fonts for your PC
These fonts are perfect for making repro ration labels, documents, viewing our Unit Handbook, and anything else you can think of. You need to download and install these fonts for them to show up on your PC. If you need instructions please ask us. The fonts "SS-Runes", "Crappy Wehrmacht Typewriter", and "WWII German Tactical Symbols" are courtesy of Marsh Wise at http://reenactor.net/ww2/fontage/fontage.html . He did a great job and if you like the fonts, please go check out his page. The other fonts I have collected from various websites and am making them available to you here. PLEASE DO NOT SELL THESE FONTS as they are copy written. Thanks!
SS Runes (Use charmap.exe to use these)
Crappy Wehrmacht Typewriter - Great font that looks like an old German typewriter. Great for documents or anything else you can think of!

Fette Haenel Fraktur - European Font
Fette Fraktur - European Font

And of course the German Standard DIN 1451 fonts. What are DIN font's you say? DIN 1451 is a realist sans-serif typeface that is widely used for traffic, administration and business applications. It has been defined by the German standards body Deutsches Institut für Normung since 1936. It is ALL OVER WWII German boxes, crates, papers, and such. The origins of this typeface go back to the "IV 44" type sheet defined by the Prussian rail network in 1906 for use on its trains.

Important Side Note
On a sad side note: Unfortunately, one of our unit members had his house broken into and (among other things) the bastards stole his K43 and his K98 along with a lot of accessories.
Be Warned. Be Aware. Be Pro-active.
THIS KIND OF STUFF DOES HAPPEN!!
Please, please, PLEASE take the proper precautions to safeguard your kit and weapons. A simple gun locker from WalMart costs less than $100. A great investment to protect your rifles, sidearms, and more expensive pieces of equipment. Using a plastic rifle case with a padlock on it and "hiding" it under your bed does not work. Just ask "dumbass" mentioned above (he told me to call him that). So please, don't be a dumbass. PROTECT YOUR STUFF AT HOME AND AT EVENTS! LOCK YOUR GEAR UP WHEN POSSIBLE! - Period locks only, of course!
OK, enough of that. Thanks.
