BOOK OUR AWARD WINNING DISPLAY

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN HAVING US ATTEND AND EVENT YOU ARE PLANNING, PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING AND SUBMIT A COMPLETED BOOKING FORM.  WE WILL AIM TO GET BACK TO YOU AS SOON AS POSSIBLE


The Royal Warwicks display will always include an interactive show and tell display of the equipment, uniform and weapons that a soldier of the British Army carried on D-Day, June 6th 1944, presented by one or more members of the group. All the equipment and the legally deactivated/replica weapons can be handled safely by members of the public. This gives a real insight into the men who carried and why it was issued (some things might surprise you!). We aim to educate, entertain and to remember those who did for real.


The French Resistance (FFI) display is an interactive show and tell of the type of equipment, explosives and weaponry that would have been available for the Resistance to use in their struggle against the Occupation. Some items on the display can be handled safely by the public.


The ATS display, although in its infancy, includes replica paperwork, original photographs of ATS members, items of uniform and equipment.


While we appreciate any invitation to display, if we are pre-booked, or the venue is too distant, then we may not be able to attend. We will confirm if we can attend once a form has been submitted. The group holds full Public Liability Insurance and can provide a Risk Assessment if required.


Please be aware that while we do not charge to put on our displays, any contributions to our costs would be very much appreciated.


Thank you for contacting us. We will get back to you as soon as possible

Talks/Presentations

The group has had extensive experience delivering interactive presentations to people of all ages. We focus on the experience of the WW2 British soldier of the Royal Warwickshire Regiment on D-Day. As part of our presentation we demonstrate the uniform, equipment and weapons carried by these men, as well as some of the dangers they had to face, with examples of German weapons and mines. In addition we aim to paint a vivid picture of June 6th and 7th from the Warwicks perspective, telling their little known story.


Talks last between one and a half to two hours (but can be tailored if needed), we can provide our own tables for the display area but would request a space of no less than Approx 4m wide and 3m deep for the display preferably inside

Outdoor Re-enactment Display One/ Two Days 'Front Line' 

Our minimum set up will include a covered displays with tents and will require at least 12m x 12m pitch with ground which pegs can be hammered into.


If the event is over two days this area will increase to include the members period sleeping tents meaning we will require a MINIMUM of 25m x 25m. We would also ask that we are allowed to use our raised, wood burning firepit to allow us to cook dinner and have a brew.


Our members will attend in uniform and battle equipment or appropriate FFI attire. We will portray 2nd Battalion Royal Warwickshire Regiment as they would have been on June 6th and 7th 1944 and the French Resistance that assisted them during this period. The emphasis is on weaponry and equipment rather than smart turn out, with weapons and section maneuver practices. 

If permitted we can also 'dig in' to demonstrate infantry fighting position known as slit trenches. Any assistance from earth moving plant would be appreciated but is not necessarily required.


We also hold a number of (legally held) live and blank firing weapons and are happy to take part in any firepower demonstrations or public battles. A contribution towards ammunition costs for these would be appreciated.
