"The "Pionier 39" group was founded in early months of 2006 on the initiative of a few experienced Polish re-enactors. Members of the group come from all over the country. The group re-enacts German WWII engineering troops (Pioniertruppen), namely the 39th Pionier Battalion of the 3. Panzerdivision from Berlin. As military history enthusiasts we do not limit our interests to this particular unit that is to say we explore the subject of German military engineering troops as a whole. As far as uniforms and equipment are concerned, we focus on the early years of WWII, gradually obtaining late war items".
