5th Bn Coldstream Guards
The 5th Battalion Coldstream Guards re-enactment group started in 2008, the group decided to seek official permission to wear the uniform and accoutrements of the 5th Battalion Coldstream Guards. The group was granted written permission by Regimental Head Quarters in February 2009.
As far as possible we use authentic WWII equipment, only using high quality replicas when original equipment is not available or too rare to risk damage. We portray the WWII British solider as accurately as possible and have a very high standard of uniform, kit and weapon authenticity.
We attend 1940s re-enactment events from the south up to the Midlands and use WWII period tents to camp at most events.
