Hello Tom, can't answer your question, just curious to know which WW1 group you're with?

Hi there

Currently Im not with a ww1 group, I just do few museum talks etc. Im with the Tommy Atkins Society mainley, we portray the 1st Batt Leicestershire regt, 49th West Riding Div "montys left flank" during WW2.

I enjoy the living history side of the hobby aswell as doing the education/ outside museum bit. Me and a freind are lookinginto portraying the English soldier from 1700-1960 so the american revolution bit is a side line :wink:

All the best

Tom

If you have any interest in Pre Rev-War.
(Noticing you posted 1700 onwards)

Lace Wars have 2 Red Coat Infantry Units as well as a detachment of Dragoons.

have a peek at www.lacewars.co.uk

We have quite a few gigs this season so pop along.

We also get to Play with NFOE too so you get the best of both.
