12410Re: Reenacting in the UK
- Nov 6, 2001Kevin and Peter,
Since she is primarily interested in Naval re-enactment of the c.
1800-1812 era, you might also direct the good Deb to HMS - the
Historical Maritime Society - who, although not specifically based in
Kent and with a considerable proportion of their membership further
North within easier reach of the "Leda" - group frigate "Trincomalee"
which they are associated (sister- ship to Broke's "Shannon", still
afloat in Hartlepool), nevertheless have members all over Britain and
re-enact in various places (e.g., nearer my locality, Hampshire, at
IFOS, Portsmouth, last August). They are likely to be in operation
sometimes at Chatham Historic Dockyard, Kent, I would surmise;
anyway, she can ask.
They are very, very knowledgeable on naval life of the period and a
good crowd of people with an excellent sense of humour too; I had the
honour of interacting with them in my persona of Pellew in 1801 at
IFOS, particularly when escorting His Britannic Majesty GIII around
his royal Dockyards.
