"Huzza for the 6th Regiment Now Keep Glory"
A Group Dedicated to, and the Preservation of, the
Royal Warwickshire Regiment and its history
Proud Supporters of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers Museum (Royal Warwickshire) and the Royal British Legion
Welcome to our website, and thank you for visiting.
This website, and the group associated with it, are dedicated to re-enacting the Royal Warwickshire Regiment (specifically its 2nd Battalion and its involvement in the Normandy landings in June 1944) and paying respect to the memory of the men who served, some making the ultimate sacrifice. In Normandy, the men of the Regiment were amongst the first waves of soldiers who came ashore during the Normandy campaign which, ultimately, led to the end of the 2nd World War in the European theater. This is part of an already illustrious military career of the Royal Warwickshire Regiment ( the 6th Regiment of Foot), spanning three centuries dating back to 1685.
Within this website you will find information about the Regiment, its past and its many Battle Honours. Along with this, there is in depth information on the period our group portrays (D-Day 1944), the part the Royal Warwickshire Regiment played in that period and the kind of equipment used by serving soldiers. It will also show what that equipment looks like and also where it can be found nowadays. There is also information about the group itself and what we do, our other impressions and how to contact us (for bookings or information) and join if it interests you.
We hope you enjoy this website and join us in paying respect to the brave service men and women who have given their lives in conflict.

WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!
Our group is currently raising funds towards erecting a permanent monument to the men of 2nd Battalion Royal Warwickshire Regiment at the site of one of their fiercest engagements, Lebisey Wood, northern Caen. Currently no monument stands to the 154 killed and wounded suffered by the Battalion during their ultimately unsuccessful attack on the town and wood of Lebisey on June 7th 1944 (more information on this attack in our 'History- D-Day +1' section).
