WW2 Civilian groups

Post by Annis »

Hi,

Just doing a bit of research really, but anyway, my parents were on holiday in North Yorkshire over the weekend and went to see the Wensleydale Railway 1940s event and my dad, apparently, loved it and is now thinking of doing WW2 events (more than he wants to do Tudor).

However, he's not interested in doing the military side of things, he wants to be a civilian, but what groups are out that that are purely civilian and/or include civilian roles? Obviously he can come and join me at Kentwell, and The Civil Defenders are a local group, but there aren't any contact details for them (but I know some people who are in the group I can speak to) and we've looked at the UKHomefront website, are there any others?

We are based in East Anglia, but my dad might be willing to travel. We're also of thinking of going to the Pickering (town) event in October, are there any more details on this?

Thanks in advance :D

the link in the post above is the best way.

I'm a civilian WW2 re-enactor and do Womens Land Army, Womens Timber Corps and ARP.

I do a bit of normal civvy stuff now and again but tend to stick to WTC.

If you have any questions ask away.

I'm cutting down on WW2 as I reckon I'd prefer 13th Century! :lol:
I'm not short, its everyone else that's too big! :D

Thanks John, I did look on that forum under the unit section, but didn't really think to actually ask.

Shortie, what group are you with?


Thanks

You don't need to join a group to go to railway events, really you only need to join if you want to attend events where you will be covered for PLI.
You might like to take a look at Allied assortment or 40s pick and mix.

It all depends on how authentic they want to be. Can reccomend some good clothes suppliers etc...
