Listing of "Other" Allied WWII Units

This page covers all the "Other Allied" participants. This means the French, the Dutch, the Belgians... all Allies who fought in WWII, but are not usually seen portrayed outside their respective countries. Why not have a page for each? A page for each would be burdensome, so for now we will do it this way. Please check out these fine units and look at their sites.

Special Section of Saboteurs of the French Forces of the Interior.
We are headquartered in Gettysburg Pa. and have members through Pennsylvania. Maryland , and New Jersey. We are history enthusiast and portray members of the French Underground and Maquis Freedom Fighters in occupied France during World War II. We  participate in reenactments,  Historical displays and Living History events through the Mid Atlantic region.
Combat!FFI (Texas, Southern USA)
Combat!FFI is a San Antonio, Texas-based "tribute group" of WW2 clandestine warfare enthusiasts named for Combat!, the French Resistance movement established by Henri Frenay. Our members portray active combatants, radio operators, couriers, forgers, OSS/SOE agents and Jedburgh teams in the field at "tactical" events and at public living history demonstrations. We especially enjoy appearing at educational venues.  
We are a living history unit who portrays the common ground crews of WW2.  Every year we assist the Collings foundation with their "Bomber fantasy cam" by being the training unit to assist training the students.  We also participate with the Midland Odessa TX CAF for their annual "Airsho" and set up a flightline maintenance section.  If you have a love for WW2 aircraft and getting your hands dirty on them drop us a line.
5RI's purpose is to portray Dutch infantry at the time of the German invasion of Holland in May 1940 as closely as possible, while participating both in public living history events as well as in private tactical events.  Our unit consists of "hardcore" reenactors with years of experience, but we welcome anybody with any level of prior experience, as long as you have an obsession with detail, a love of conducting original research, an open and friendly personality, and a fascination with the first years of World War II in Europe.  Our membership is focused in the Mid-Atlantic, but we also have members as far away as the Midwest.
6th Airborne Armoured Reconnaissance Regiment
  During WW2, for the first time, soldiers and equipment were flown into battle by air. In the opening phases of the war, the German armed forces used airborne forces dropping by parachute and landing by glider with great effect to attack targets in western Europe and the Mediterranean.   The United Kingdom was quick to see the advantages such forces could give, and in response, developed airborne forces of her own.  Of the nations who used airborne forces, no-one brought the concept to reality in a manner grander than the United Kingdom.  With larger and more sophisticated types of glider than any other country, the British Army was capable of landing entire mechanized and armored units directly into battle by air.  
  The epitome of that capability was the 6th Airborne Armoured Reconnaissance Regiment, an entirely mechanized, armored unit equipped with light tanks, armored personnel carriers, armored scout cars, jeeps, motorcycle mounted infantry, and it's own artillery in the form of towed 4.2" heavy mortars.  
  The 6th AARR was flown into the Normandy bridgehead on the evening of D-Day, the operation code-named "Mallard", becoming the first-ever unit in history to fly tanks directly into a battle by air.  It fought throughout the Normandy campaign alongside the units brought in by sea, and advanced out of the bridgehead during the "Breakout from Normandy", leading the way to the Seine River.     After the 6th AARR was withdrawn from Normandy to Britain to prepare for further airborne operations, it was sent, in a hurry, back to the continent in December of 1944 to bolster the British and American forces fighting along the northern flank of the Ardennes forest in the "Battle of the Bulge".  Upon completing its mission there, it was again withdrawn to Britain to prepare for further airborne operations.
  In March of 1945, the tanks of the 6th AARR were again flown into battle, this time during "Operation Varsity", the crossing of the Rhine River.  The unit flew into the air head to fight off german counterattacks and operate as a reserve, assisting the airborne infantry where necessary.  Upon the successful establishment of the airhead and the link-up with the 'seaborne' forces crossing over the river, the 6th AARR again led the advance, at the head of the 6th Airborne Division. Leading the division in its true reconnaissance role, it broke out of the Rhine bridgehead and advanced all the way to the Baltic sea, linking up with Soviet Forces advancing from the east, and putting paid to the Third Reich.
  Our club, the re-enacted 6th Airborne Armoured Reconnaissance Regiment, portrays the men and machines of our namesake, to keep alive the memory of those who pioneered the flight of armor into battle.  We are a non-profit organization of volunteers who spend our time and effort collecting and crewing armored vehicles of the type used by the 6th AARR in its operations during WW2.  
  We participate in demonstrations for the public as well as private gatherings of like-minded clubs in Texas and her neighboring states.  Membership is open to all.

The Polish American Living History Association is a non profit, educational organization dedicated to the preservation and public education of Poland's fight during WWII.  
We differ from the standard concept of a "reenactment unit" in that PALHA members may chose more than one primary Polish "impression."
So are we a WW2 reenactment unit? Yes we are. That, and more.
The concept is that while most reenactment units choose a particular regiment or company from a specific date and place to portray, PALHA's goal is to demonstrate to the public the enormity of the Polish contribution to WWII, which is truly immense. With that in mind, we have the ability to portray many different Polish formations, from 1939 to 1945. The sorts of events that we attend are also quite varied. We have participated in battle reenactments, parades, living history displays, have performed honor guard duties, and have given speeches and presentations at local schools
The 92nd RI, a French infantry reenactment unit from the 1939 - 1940 time period.

The 92nd RI (Regiment d'Infanterie) is composed of historically oriented individuals who are interested in the first great campaign in Western Europe in the spring of 1940, The Battle of France.

We have no military or political agenda nor do we promote or condone any political ideology, real or historic.  We're interested in exploring the military history and culture of France in the period of time just prior to and including the Battle of France in May - June, 1940.  
The Home Page of the French Foreign Legion Historical Society. We are non-profit, tax-exempt organization, whose function is to portray the history of the Foreign Legion from 1939 to 1954. In this capacity, we cover World War II and the Indochina war. By doing this, we seek to honor all Legionnaires, especially those, many forever unknown, who paid the extreme sacrifice for a country they were never be able to call their own.
The Compa??a Hist?rica 2?me. DB: ?La Nueve? is a reenacting group that intends to remember the Spanish Republican soldiers that fought with the 2nd Free French Armoured Division, also known as the ?Leclerc Division?. The 9th company (?La Nueve?), which was alsmost exclusively composed of Spaniards, was the first Allied unit to enter Paris on the 24th August, 1944, on vehicles that carried names such as ?Teruel?, ?Guadalajara?, ?Ebro? and ?Santander?.
 
The members of the current Compa??a Hist?rica 2?me. DB: ?La Nueve? want to present the different aspects of the life of Spanish exiles who fought as members of the Free French forces. In this way, we want to honour the memory of Spanish Republican soldiers who fought during the Second World War
l'As de C'ur maquis has been a recognized unit in the Texas Military Historical Society since 1996. We are World War Two reenactors, our primary interest is in gathering, preserving and displaying the equipment, weapons and uniforms of a French AS-MUR maquis. We also enjoy participating in living history events and TMHS's private tactical battles. Our headquarters is in Austin, Texas.

The maquis we portray was a part of the Corr?ze area Arm?e S?cret in 1944. It helped slow the 2. SS Division (Das Reich) on its way to the Normandy beachhead.
The Netherlands 1940-1945, Study and Living History Group aims to educate people at events in Holland and abroad about how the civilian population lived through the occupation of Europe during the Second World War.
The Polish American Living History Association is a non profit, educational organization dedicated to the preservation and public education of Poland's fight during WWII.

With members based in Maryland, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia and Illinois, we participate in camp displays, tactical events, parades, and other events designed to both explore this fascinating history as well as to educate the public on this remarkable chapter of WW2 that has largely been untold.

Our overlying principles are best described by our mission statement as quoted from the organization's constitution, "To honor the memory of Polish soldiers during WWII, fighting on all fronts, through our research, public education and living history." To accomplish this end our organization seeks motivated individuals who commit to accurately research and portray the common Polish soldier of WWII.

  We differ from the standard concept of a "reenactment unit" in that PALHA members may chose more than one primary Polish "impression." Are we a WW2 reenactment unit? Yes we are. That, and more.

20th Infantry Regiment, 1939 (USA, Chicago area)
20th Infantry Regiment (20 Pulk Piechoty) "Ziemi Krakowskiej". Only US based Reenactment Group portraying Polish soldier in 1939 campaign. Based in the Chicago area.
We are a group of reenactors who decided to expand our impression. The Eastern Front events are becoming more popular in United States. However a lot of people don't feel comfortable wearing a uniform with red star. That is one of the reasons why we decide to portray 1st Polish Division.
By the end of the war Poles had almost 400.000 soldiers on the eastern front also for that reason we think that its about time to pay respect to all those Poles who found themselves in ranks of LWP and bravely fought to liberate Poland from German occupation.

We think that by reenacting Poles who fought on the eastern front we are paying a tribute to all those brave soldiers who died fighting for independent Poland. Unfortunately, they were fighting in vain because German occupation was replaced by Soviet occupation for almost 50 years
This page is dedicated to the Jewish Brigade group and all who served the allies in WW2, we are seeking more Jews to join us in WW2 reenactments, this particular unit is based in the Central Florida area, there are other members in the Arizona area, but do not let that discourage you from forming one abroad. Let us honor the Jews who fought not just the ones who went silently into the night.
