End of year report 2010

Post  Gina_Costina on Mon Dec 27, 2010 3:35 pm

It’s that time of the year that I reflect on what the group has done and achieved in that last twelve months. Whilst some events remain fresh in my mind it really is hard to believe that a year has gone by since my last end of year report. What follows is a pictorial record of just some of the events we attended in 2010.

In February we attended “In the footsteps of the 82nd Airborne” a 23km Hike in La Gleize, Belgium, retracing the foot-steps of the 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 82nd Airborne. As always it was great experience and we were joined by one of our newer members; Dan O’Dwyer.






In March some of the group attended Chiltern Open Air Museum (COAM) Linking in with Ranger Re-enactments, 1st Div Living History Group and FAAA.



In April we attended the Lincolnsfield Centre, Bushey, where we had the chance to work with the 2nd Guards living history group.


Also in April we attended at tactical in Pippingford Park as the 1st Infantry Division


In May, we dug in at “Bunkerbash” the site of the not-so-secret nuclear bunker. It was our first real chance to put to test our 60mm mortar.




In June- we went to Normandy, retracing the Footsteps of the 79th Infantry Division, a fantastic trip and one I won’t forget in a hurry. We met some great people AND Picked up another member of the group along the way. Pat Alexandre.



>>>>>






Also in June we attended Trowbridge armed forces celebrations



In July we displayed at Peak Rail, a chance to portray the 69th Division and work again with the 2nd guards Living history group, and also pick up another new member to the group Dean Badham-Spalding





Also in July we got back into our M1942’s and portrayed the 101st and 82nd Airborne at Staveley Hall


>>>





In September we attended Operation Neptune at Skegness, portraying the 1st Infantry Division. Despite the atrocious weather it was, as usual, one of my favourite events.




In the last year we have had the chance to develop and improve our impressions, and we have some great impressions and events planned for 2011.

If you want to be part of a living history that strives to accurately portray the GI of WW2, please contact us. We aim to organize and attend various WW2 reenactments, engage in high quality living history, educate the public and keep alive the memory of those who made sacrifices during WW2.

Finally may I wish all of you within the living history community the very best for 2011.

Have to say our pics. are not half bad at all, we may sometimes take a bow to our more senior groups out there but I think we have carved out our own particular brand of living history and by and large it looks pretty good, as Chris says to any potential member we put on a pretty good show.

Well done to everyone, lets make it just as good for 2011!

Been a good and busy year for sure!!!!

I truly believe that the group is up there with the very best of the US WW2 groups out there now. Whilst it is impossible for any group to be truly 100% spot on, i think you would be hard pushed to find another that can match us on authenticity, knowledge, commitment and attitude... proud to be a part of it and looking forward to 2011! Very Happy
