Calendar:

 

 

The Group has been very active in the past but due to illness, availability for events over the last few years has been sporadic. The group attends a range of events from military shows to living history displays. They have worked with the Ministry of Defence, English Heritage, Aldershot Military Museum, Firepower Museum, National Army Museum, Royal Armouries, and the Royal Artillery.

They have also been involved in TV and film productions, for example, Atonement, 10 Days to D-Day by 3BM Productions and Battlefield Detectives with Granada TV.

The annual calendar will be updated in due course, but the past calendar below gives an idea of the sorts of events we attend. Pictures from past events are included in the Gallery.
