Hi,
A couple of years ago i heard that during the 1930's there was a simplified version of Meyer's longsword developed for use by the hitler youth movement. Does anyone know if any of this material is available or has been translated into english and what sort of training equipment was used?

The only information I've seen about this is in this thread:

But perhaps you've seen that already...

Yes, thanks, found that one the other day but have found nothing else, was hoping that some of the regulars here might have come across it at some stage. I suppose that my interest stems from wanting to see how meyer and german longsword in general was adapted for a youth movement, the same way i suppose that some of the quarterstaff stuff was adapted for use in the boy scouts.
