|History and Objectives|
The Association “Traditia Militara” (“Military Tradition” or ATM), first Romanian member of the European Union of Military Historical Groups, is the oldest such group officially registered in Romania, focusing on 19th and 20th centuries. Our Honorary President was the Academy member Dinu C.Giurescu, while our military adviser and honorary member of the group is the former Director of
We cultivate the traditions of 10 prestigious Romanian military units: Regiment 2 Vânatori Gardă “Regina Elisabeta” (chasseurs), Batalion 1 Vânători de Munte “Regele Carol II.” (mountain troops),
The members of our group have bought original items or have had uniforms and gear manufactured, based on a thorough study of the archives, including edged weapons and fire arms replicas, congruent with the original historical items, for each of the different time periods to be commemorated. They often have drills and exercises according to the ancient military regulations, in order to ensure that their appearance at events is a correct reflection of military history.
During our activities, at home or abroad, we cooperate, based on official, signed and sealed documents, with the National Military Museum in Bucharest, the National Office for Heroe’s Cult, the Bucharest City Hall, the General Staff of the Romanian Army, the Romanian Gendarmerie, other military institutions and museums, war veterans, local authorities in several regions, groups similar to ours throughout the world. With these groups we have strived to establish friendly relationships,
