The Warwicks at the Weald & Downland Living Museum

Warwicks Regiment Living History Group

Saturday 21 October to Sunday 22 October 2017
10.30am - 5.30pm

We are pleased to welcome members of the Warwicks regiment to the Museum on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 October 2017.

The Warwicks (The Royal Warwickshire Regiment) 1914 – 1918 are a dedicated Living History Group formed to perpetuate the memory of the Great War soldier. Their aim is to portray the Royal Warwickshire Regiment soldier from 1914 to 1918 through dynamic displays and living history.

They parade as a Regular Infantry section from the 1st Battalion the Royal Warwickshire Regiment. Regular training days are held to ensure drills are kept up to standard and that kit is correct.

The group will be giving talks  and demonstrations as part of our daily programme of activities. Their focus will be on the year 1900 – the period before the regiment was deployed in South Africa – and about the drill and training that took place. The day will also covering what they would have eaten, worn and how they would have lived at that time.
