Just a few questions if anyone knows.

  • How easy is it to join this group.
    Are the members nationwide or do they live in a near proximity to each other.
    Is the kit provided or do you need to purchase your own.
    Are there any basic requirements to be met?
    How many functions are there in a year.
    Are memberships payable?
    And finally is there an age limit.

In the Diehards we portray three main periods, there is no memebership fee, however members are encouraged to aqquire thier own kit, which we supply inter group through our various contacts. As a group we can set up new members for the first few events, in camp attire, if not full acroutements.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]


There is no age limit, however, obviously we portray an infantry regiment in the line of the late victorian period, this includes alot of parade and display work, for example this weekend we did two one hour events daily, 45 minutes of that spent on parade duty to attention, then Marching Drill and rifle review, it is not for someone who is not quite fit, it is just that it is quite physically demanding. My son Harry is also in the company, along with three other young members 12-16, they do magnificent jobs as Drummers, buglers and other duties expected of them in the Victorian army.

Members, are based all over the country, geographically events are from the midlands downwards, but the Diehards have been to Canada, malta and South Africa.

As a group we try to be 100% historically correct, and detail is quite precise, I have been members of previous zulu wars groups, which are no so professional. I joined the Diehards because thier portrayal is quite extrordinary.

We cover three main periods.

Home Service 1880's, 57th Middlesex Battn , which is seven button home service tunic, pattern 1882 valise, and Blue cloth helmets. Ths cost of the kit is about £400.

Zulu Wars 24th foot, again cost of kit is approx £400, + the Martini Henry.

Boer war, Middlesex, Slade wallace accroutements, Long lee rifle cost approx £250 + the rifle.

Our events this year are
5th/6th June Chatham RE Museum (home service)
19th/20th June, Waltham Abbey Gunpowder Mills: Full Zulu wars weekend with other groups
17th/18th July Kelmarsh Festive of History Boer war

7th/8th Aug Broadlands House : Home service

Sept Stratford Armouries


Initial contact is to Tim, our events co-ordinator (to save spam) timothylrose (at) yahoo.com[img][/img]

As you can see from the image about 30 "regulars" , there are many more members but few turn up for many events at any one time,

I am not aware of any which come on the forum
