Hello from Dorset, I am new to this forum/activity but have a general interest in 1940's/50's. In the process of assembling British army uniform from the era. Lucky to have several military museums in Dorset which provide source material and information.
Any re-enactors in Dorset? Tim Cannock.

Maria, when/where is the railway event? I do also have a 'homefront' interest.

Hi Tim

Welcome to the forum, you're in the right area of the country for re-enactment as most of the largest events tend to be in the south/ south-east. Good luck on your search for a group, what army unit/ period are you wanting to portray?

Cheers

Shift

Thanks for the encouragement Shifty.As I live close to the former depot of the Dorset Regiment then they would be my obvious choice of Unit, period could be anywhere 1939 to 1958.

Cool! Nice to see people doing British Infantry, honestly no idea if there is a group portraying the Dorsets but if not then you have yourself your own group! :)

I would be interested in the Army Medical Services and Hampshire groups, I was in TA RAMC.

Hi Tim

My wife and I are Dorset based and belong to World War 2 In Colour who are largely based in the South.

Primary impressions of the group are British Commando and German Heer but any impression is welcome. I specialize in Free French and members have other impressions including Brazilian.

Thanks Chasseur for the info, is there a website/Facebook page for 'World War 2 In Colour'? My 1940's/50's British Army uniform is now almost ready, but a battle dress blouse (at the right size and price) remains to 'grail' item.

Hi Tim
The website address is www.ww2incolour.org

Search for "WW2 in Colour" on Facebook.

I hope you find it interesting.
