About Us

 

We are a group of keen historical re-enactors who started off very simply and have now extended to include many periods of history and are still expanding.

For some of us this adventure began over 35 years ago. The group was formed in 1987 when we began by representing the 23rd Foot, Royal Welch Fusiliers in the American War of Independence.

Recreating uniforms, living condition, food, drill and everyday life of both Military and Civilian, making clothes, wearing packs, drilling, cooking on an open fire  and learning new skills (or resurrecting old ones), we  constantly seek to develop a greater understanding of the lives and everyday existence of the people we portray.

We specialise in several groups and periods, and pride ourselves on historical accuracy (with in-depth research and minute attention to detail). Click on the pictures to the left and right for more information on the different periods.
