“I visited the 10th Essex at Chalke Valley History Festival and was extremely impressed with their presentation.

The attention to detail and depth of knowledge of their members really came across to the public in a very engaging way.

They do their utmost to open a doorway to the past to give a well-balanced glimpse into the lives of the Tommy’s they represent. I’m delighted to act as the group’s patron and support their aims to inform and educate about the Great War and those who fought in it.”
