Some of our members have had experience of working as extras on film and television productions.  As a re-enactment group, we also have connections with a number of other groups like our's and so we can call upon others like us to help out when you need larger numbers of people.

As collectors of 1940s militaria, clothing and ephemera, we can bring an instant period look to your production.  And if you want 1930's and 1940's vehicles, we might be able to help you find some.

Please note, however, we do not come for free.  Our members at least expect to have their travelling (and accommodation and meals where applicable) expenses paid for.  But at least you will be saving on costume and props hire.  We are sorry, but we cannot afford to help out with student productions with zero budgets.   

 

Productions we have helped with:

  • "Revealed - Britain's Nazi King" for Channel 5 (2009), by Oxford Films.   Watch this documentary online.
     

  • "A Far Cry" a short film by Fix Films Ltd (2007) and shown on Sky Television.  Watch this film online.
     

  • "The World at War Weekend" a short documentary made by Junction 15 in 2004 for retail sale .
     

  • "Days Out - the War & Peace Show" a two-part documentary made for and screened by ZeeTV in 2005.
     

  • "The Map Makers", episode 3 of 3 made for the History Channel in 2004.
     

  • "We Can Make You Talk", a one-off documentary about 20th century interrogation practices made by Tiger Aspect for The History Channel in 2003.
