2ND BATTALION  ROYAL WARWICKSHIRE REGIMENT

RIFLE PLATOON

Currently as a group, we have between eight to twenty members at any given event, although we can have a fully interactive stand with a single member present. The nature of the hobby allows us to be very flexible in our impression.

At events where we portray the Royal Warwick Regiment, our main impression, we follow a realistic military structure as it would have been in 1944. At the moment, this takes the shape of an infantry platoon, with Headquarters section (led by a Lieutenant and Platoon Serjeant) and three infantry sections (each led by a Corporal and Lance Corporal) of varying strength dependent on attendance.

STRETCHER BEARER

Often the difference between life and death for wounded soldiers, the Regimental stretcher bearers, often drawn from the Regimental bandsmen or infantry volunteers would move forwards to triage wounded men and prepare them for evacuation to a Regimental Aid Post.

When attendance allows a number of group will portray this unusual but poignant impression.
