We do not consider ourselves Great War Re-enactors but Living Historians providing educational shows about the First World War. Every member is truly passionate about the Great War and its many different aspects.
The groups aim is to provide a well informed and balanced ‘Visual Remembrance’ of those brave men and the Battalion and others who served in the British and Commonwealth Armed Forces throughout the conflict.
The group undertake public displays of drill, battlefield tactics and equipment at historical events across the United Kingdom and in Europe.
These typically take place in the private grounds of the event sponsor: English Heritage, Historical Scotland, Royal Armouries, National Army Museum, and the Shuttleworth Collection have been examples of places where we have been. In such surroundings live weapon fire and battle field simulations can be demonstrated.
Here is a small video demostrating what we can do.
