|HISTORICAL RE-ENACTMENT GROUP
|The Second World War was the greatest armed conflict ever witnessed by mankind. Thousands of young Americans
would find themselves serving in far flung battlefields around the world. It was these individuals, the American
GI, who made the ultimate sacrifice to rid the world of tyranny.
We are a group of individuals dedicated to preserving the history of these remarkable men. By participating in
living history displays and authentic battle re-enactment's, we help to bring the story of the American soldier
in WW2 to life in the present day.

Our unit goes to great lengths to accurately re-create the experience of the average American foot soldier in the
Second World War. From our authentic period camp and the rations we eat in the field, to the clothing and
equipment we wear on our backs, we strive to be an exact living recreation of an American rifle platoon during
the Second World War.
