|Who are we?
Our group depicts a typical Infantry unit based in France & Belgium between the years of 1916 to 1918.
We try to 'Live the History' of the AIF of the Great War. Our group is open to all individuals to join as well as family groups as all aspects of early 20th Century life is encouraged to be re-enacted.
We are also including WWI German soldier impressions as well as they were a part of the big picture so to speak.
If you wish to be a soldier you will need a NSW shooters permit if you wish to use & carry a rifle. We are run as a military unit & have a rank structure in place, that really does work.
If you decide to join us please understand that unless there are 'special' circumstances you will join as a 'private' & will NOT be allowed to wear oversas service stripes or the brass 'A' worn by Gallipoli veterans, this is because these men were rarely seen by 1917-18 which is our particular time period . You will earn each service stripe for each year of service in the unit until you reach 4 years in the unit. You will also have to have a military sytle haircut if you wish to be a soldier, there are no exeptions for this :-).
