About



We are a small group of friends, who in their spare time and at their own expense, try through using our displays to inform, educate, and promote awareness of the great sacrifices our parents and grandparents made during World War Two, to give us the freedoms we can so often take for granted today.

The display normally depicts "X" Troop of 48 Royal Marine Commando in Normandy 1944 either on D-Day itself or shortly afterwards as they helped to hold the Allied line. However we can also be equipped as during the the Scheldt Operations.

2009 saw us traveling to a number of events, both in the UK and mainland Europe, including the Pas de Calais Liberation Festival in France and The Combined Ops. event at Headcorn, Kent. We try to get involved in both vehicle convoy and static displays, trying to ensure a good variety of shows from the small country fete to the larger military events such as The War and Peace Show at Beltring. 

We can provide our display for re-union and rememberence events or fund raising.


We are an easy going group, but we do strictly adhere to 'getting it right' as much as possible,we do this out of respect for the units and men we try to portray and of course historical accuracy. That means correct uniform, kit and haircut! Throughout events we endeavour to be properly dressed,according to KR's

 


We love to get feedback from visitors to the shows, veterans and other historical group members, so please come and have a chat and a brew if you see us at an event. Sippers maybe available if Tankie is feeling generous!


 If you fancy getting involved we would love to hear from you, we can then advise you on the kit you will need to take part in an event. We will try to help you out with advice on basic gear where we can, so that you can spend time getting to see if you might like coming along on a more regular basis.
