Have you ever wondered what it was like to be a soldier ‘on the other side of the fence’ during WW2?

As one of the UK’s friendliest and most approachable re-enactment groups, we’ll help you gain an understanding of exactly that by discussing the combat history, the uniforms, equipment, vehicles and personalities that made up one of Germany’s elite army units that fought in Italy in 1943/44 and then on the Eastern Front from late 1944 to the end of the war in May 1945.

If you want to know more about this little known aspect of history, come over and have a chat with us, we’ll be more than happy to meet you at one of the events detailed below.
