We are a military display and living history group depicting the British Soldier in the Great War of 1914 – 1918.
The group aims to provide a well informed and balanced ‘Visual Remembrance’ of those brave men of the Battalion and others who served in the British Armed Forces throughout the conflict.
Our objective is to interact as well as educate and our intention is ‘education not entertainment’. At the same time, history and learning should be fun, immersive and interactive. We do not have roped off areas or barriers at our events thus enabling the public to get up close and personal to our living historians and their artifacts.
We are always welcoming new members and if you wish to join then please contact us and we can provide you with details of how to join and become a member in probably the best WW1 living history group in the country.
2019 sees us aquiring a couple of new patrons, Melanie Dodd and Miranda Banks, who are daughter and grand-daughter to Sir Donald Banks KCB DSO MC TD and you can read more clicking here.
So when you do come and see us, feel free to ask questions and enter into discussions with any one of our members. They are more than happy to share their stories with you and they might even let you handle the items on display.
You will also find pictures from our events overseas and around the Home Counties.
