About reenacting

Recently a group of students had been using, among others, our site for a fun educational military history and historic reenactment project. One of the group thought it would be a great idea to have something on our website for those interested in reenacting to find out more.The link below will take you to a site called Wizardpins which has a page
giving you details on the various types of reenactment available.
Many thanks to Noah and his dad for the link.

The Queen's Royal Surreys Regimental museumThis website tells the history, traditions and customs of the two Infantry Regiments of Surrey. The Queen’s Royal Regiment (West Surrey), the 2nd of Foot, was England’s oldest infantry Regiment formed in 1661. The East Surrey Regiment was formed in 1881 by the amalgamation of the 31st who first paraded in 1702 as a Marine Regiment and the 70th who were raised in 1758. These two Regiments were amalgamated in 1959 to form The Queen's Royal Surrey Regiment.

2nd Regiment of footSince coming together in mid 90's, this group has aimed to bring the pages of history to life - in particular the Napoleonic wars of 1809-1815, including the battle Waterloo 1815.
