The Long and The Short and The Tall
Living History Group
We are a small group who have been together since mid 2011. We are enthusiasts of the British Army and aim to portray the British Soldier of World War 2 in a professional, friendly and fun manner. We have a large number of original and reproduction props including uniforms, weapons and equipment as well as a 1941 Humber Utility Lorry which is portrayed in the desert colours as belonging to the 7th Armoured Brigade of the 8th Army, the famous 'Desert Rats'. We have carried out several desert impressions but also carry out impressions of European scenarios e.g post D Day 1944 etc. We are based in the South East of England and mainly go to events within a 3 hour radius of London. We are looking for new members to join our group who want to join a small but friendly group who want to enjoy the hobby without having 'unit politics' dominating what we do and where we go.
