Eric and Miriam
say: "We started re-enacting, as many have before, by visiting
Pickering to see what went on there. This is an event where you feel
'out of place' if not in 40s gear. We were hooked. this was in 2001.
Since then we have visited many different 40s events particularly if
steam trains are involved.
Eric re-enacts as RAOC because this is the Corps he was in during army
service so it was for him the most natural military group to portray.
We enjoy meeting, chatting and sharing with other re-enactors and
visitors to events and particularly enjoy getting involved with Sunday
Service / Parades and have had opportunity to play the accordian or
keyboard at some of the events.
The Northern Forties Group seems to be right for us to be part of as it
is 'not too intense and demanding' as some are."
