Allied Re-enactment Groups
« on: March 11, 2007, 04:04:37 AM »
Hello Chaps,

Everything is a first for me in this forum at the moment. I'd like to throw this question out to the forum...

Q.. Does anyone have information as to whether or not there are any Allied WW.1 Re-enactment groups in the California area?

Thank you in advance.

Seph   :)

There are! What are you interested in?

For US, there's Co. G, 364th Infantry that I belong to.

Hello, and thank you so much for your reply.

I was a member of the York and Lancaster Regiment in England, that's a unit of the Great War Society. It was my hope that there may be a British unit or two somewhere here on the west coast, especially California. If not, then I'm quite willing to knit in with a US unit. The field drills, equipment and general orders are different, but I'm a fast learner. Being a former career Royal Marine Commando of 22-years service, I've no problem with weekends in the field. My specialist interest and hobby is an off-shoot to one of my RM jobs... Infantry Weapons Instructor. I would be a great asset to my unit.

Are there any British Regiments this side of the country?

Seph..   :)

This is the GWHS (Great War Historical Society). The website hasn't been updated in awhile.

Hasn't the GWHS fallen on hard times since the loss of their primary site? Or has that issue been resolved?

To set the record straight:

Yes, unfortunately we lost our battlesite at Jack Rabbit Trail BUT we are far from dead!

Right now we're doing a number of timeline events while we attempt to sort out the battlesite problem- it's not going to happen quickly due to the difficulty of locating suitable real estate in California.

Nevertheless, our numbers may be small at this time but we're still very much alive. Currently, we're getting ready for the History of Heroes event which is scheduled for April 28-29 in Bakersfield. Check here for more info:

http://www.historyofheroes.com/

If anyone is interested in doing American or German, please PM me.

Finally, I'd like to say that I'm getting tired of the rumours that we're no longer in existence- NOT TRUE!!! BS rumours like this do not help the situation.

Hello Mathew,

My Federal Civil War unit, the 79th Regt NYSV, Co:A, (Cameron Highlanders)...  will be attending The History of Heroes. I'm Sgt-Maj for that unit, so lets hope we can meet up for chat there.

See you in two weeks..   ;D

UPDATE!

As of this date/time, I have seven individuals who have shown an interest in taking up the 'King's Shilling' to join the 2nd Battalion, The Lancashire Fusiuliers. The requirements of joining the 'GWHS' are that a unit requires a compliment of eight or more ranks. I would like to approach the 'GWHA' to say that the 2nd Battalion, The Lancashire Fusiliers meets that criteria.

There is a long road ahead in order for the regt to be recognised officially, but with a core of dedicated individuals...  WE CAN DO IT.

The 2nd Battalion, The Lancashire Fusiliers will be a unit of dedicated, professional individuals, who mean to show in their impression, that we honour historically ans acurately..... those who's uniform and Cap Badge we wear, and who's lifestyle we portray.

... 'At the going down of the sun, and in the morning... WE WILL REMEMBER THEM!'

Names of all interested individuals, please contact me via my email address = sgt-maj@sbcglobal.net

Seph.

UPDATE: 19th October 2007.

As of this date, including myself, the 2nd Battalion Lancashire Fusiliers has '4' dedicated members who are actively getting kit and uniform together. There are another 27 interested individuals, but out of those I am certain that another '4' will take up the 'King's Shilling'. We will meet the public for the first time as an operational WW.1 reenactment/living history group.. in April 2008 at the timeline event: 'History of Heroes'... here in Bakersfield, California.

On 8th August 2014, the 'War to end ALL wars', World War One, will see its centenary. It is anticipated that Europe will be holding some very moving, sentimental and heart rending rememberance celebrations. Myself and present 2/LF members are in great anticipation of being there to be a part of this once in a lifetime experance. How about joining us and have fun doing so? Interested individuals are requested to contact me in the first instance at: sgt-maj@sbcglobal.net

UPDATE: 2nd APRIL 2008

The 2nd Battalion Lancashire Fusiliers is growing stronger! We also now have a regular trench site. See us on the following website: http://greatwarhistoricalsociety.com
Upon the home-page, click upon the word 'Units' (found on the left of the page) then click upon the 'Union Jack' flag. Scroll down to the third Union Jack flag and click upon the battalion name beneath.... your now viewing the 2nd Battalion Lancashire Fusiliers.

As you'll notice, the battalion website is undergoing construction, but please do not let that deter you. Don't miss out...  contact me... 'TODAY!'
