Re-enactment WW2 SWB

Welcome to the South Wales Borderers WW2 Re-enactment Group

The South Wales Borderers Re-Enactment Group are a friendly group depicting The 2nd Battalion 24th Regiment of Foot, as they would have appeared in North West Europe circa 1944 -1945.

A small dedicated unit, accurately portraying the normal "Tommy Soldier" of that day. Our dress reflects the way fighting men looked in action and at rest behind the lines.

Our aim is to keep alive the memories of the men and women who served in World War II.

If you are interested in joining the group please email us at wendy.sidney206@btinternet.com for more information. 

Along with other Battle Groups, we take part in public displays. Also, several times a year, we get to spend the weekend taking part in large battles. There will be British and American Units against a variety of German WW II re-enactment groups.

Events can involve over 250 men and women pitting their wits against each other. With explosions and gunfire all around you and the possibility of being outflanked by 150 German soldiers intent on taking you out of the battle you have to go for your objective or defend your lines.

I would like to thank all past members of the group and future members of the group for allowing us to keep some of their pictures on the site. Some of our old members who have left re-enactment often pop on to the site to have a look around and have a laugh at some of the photos and situations they use to get up to. All photos on this site belong to the South Wales Borderers WW2 re-enactment group. 

It must be made clear that this group and website is for the purposes of historical re-enactment and by appearing at publicly attended shows and events it is our intention to show, explain and educate the public on a particular aspect of world history, and hopefully to allow members to enjoy their hobby. We neither condone, encourage nor wish to glorify any political ideology either existent or historical and we distance ourselves entirely from anyone so doing. If you believe you may be offended by the content of the website then please ask yourself why you came here in the first place.
