A brief introduction to our hobby of reenactment and an insight into our museum projects in Germany, Holland and the UK.
The Reenactment group was formed in December 2010 in North-West Germany by Bill Medland and Guy Ticehurst,our interests are in the british Regiments of both Napoleonic and World war Two reenactment. However we also reenact German Wehrmacht with groups in Germany and Holland.
Most of our little group are British expats and the group language is mainly English. As well as reenactment, the group members take part in photo shoots, museum work and a host of other historically related subjects. We work close with other groups in Germany and abroad.
We wish to stress that we are collectors and hobby historians, and not neo-nazis. This is not a group supporting neo-nazis or their views. Any such persons found to be extremist will be expelled. Any groups who share our view are welcome to work with us on various local projects.
It started as a father and son team, then three others joined. Now we have joined up with another reenactment team, to make a solid group containing a good dozen members, working together has been further helped due to the fact that we all live within the NRW region of Germany.

The "Home front" is also not forgotten, this photo was taken at Bushey hall Museum in Kent, England, where we are actively involved in a museums project bringing to life the British Home front in WW2.
Some of our projects take us away from WW2 and into more modern times. Both Bill and Guy are active members of the Royal Air force Museum in Germany. After 25 years Bill has gone full circle and is working once more on the RAF Regiment´s Rapier missile system.
