The 41st Kings Regiment of Foot
is a Napoleonic re-enactment group of brave redcoats. It is based on the troop type “Foot Guards” and they are normally the supporting regiment going around the map and flanking the enemy to become victorious. They have regular training dates and line battles. All the officers are well trained along side all of our members. We do separate trainings if needed with our members and always formations training and melee including some fun activities

The Great War Society was founded in 1984.It is a non profit making organisation based in the United Kingdom. The aim of the Society is to provide an opportunity for practical research into the uniforms, weapons, equipment, training and everyday tasks of Great War soldiers, both of the Allied, and the Central powers.
Members of The Great War Society dress in uniforms and use equipment from the period of 1914-1918. The Society is a Living History group and not a battle re-enactment group.
