Welcome to our website
We decided to put together this website to record our Re-enactment
These pages are about our ventures into 1940's reenactment.
We try our best to portray everyday people throughout the Second World War;
2nd Battalion Royal Warwickshire Regiment
British Auxiliary (British Resistance)
Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS)
Forces Francais de l'Intereur (FFI - French Resistance)
1940's events are very popular these days. Lots of people go to 1940's
events dressed up, and lots of people reenact, either as individuals
or as part of a reenactment group. These pages are for those people
who wish to reenact, and are new to reenactment. Our intention with
this website is to share our experiences and give advice and helpful
If you've never come across historical reenactment before, you have
missed a treat. If you can think of an historical era, there is probably
a reenactment group or society that covers it - Romans, Vikings, Napoleonic,
Medieval, Civil War, Victorian, Edwardian, World War One, World War
Two, you name it, there'll be a group of enthusiasts that portray
the era. The common thread with all reenactment groups is the desire
to be as authentic as possible, which means hours of research, getting
the clothing correct, the right cloth, correct colours for garments,
the right accessories and equipment. Meticulous and detailed work!
Reenactment is fun, we enjoy getting away from our everyday lives
and living in a gentler, less technological era for a few hours. And
the people you meet are friendly and welcoming, regardless of which
era you want to portray.
Getting into reenactment is easy, all you need is the confidence
to wear strange clothing in public!
On the following pages we have listed some hopefully helpful advice,
some do's and don'ts, and some groups and traders we know and trust.
We have also listed some resource material that we've used - it isn't
a comprehensive list, just books we've bought that we've found useful.
We'll also try and remember to take pictures at the various events
we go to and upload them to the site, we are notoriously bad at remembering
to take pictures!
