British re-enactors in the US

Postby Niner » Wed Aug 28, 2019 10:14 am

Welcome to the electronic home of His Britannic Majesty King George III’s 4th Company of Foot Guards, a recreated unit of the British Army in the American Colonies during the Rebellion of 1775-1782.

They are looking for members. Probably about like looking for someone to play Tonto against the Lone Ranger. But..someone has to do it.

Why is it that all re-enactors of of whatever sort all are either too old or too fat....and usually both... to be believable as solders from the time they are trying to represent? Maybe young people aren't interested or can't afford the gear...or both.
