Welcome to the new Charlie Company website! Some of our pages are under construction; please bear with us as we develop our site.
We are a re-enactment group, portraying American G.I.'s in the U.S. 29th Infantry Division during WWII.
Active at many shows and events throughout the UK, and with several TV appearances to our credit, we pride ourselves on our accurate portrayal of life in the 29th, and have a superb collection of original vehicles, weapons, equipment and uniforms, to make every display as authentic as possible.
Please feel free to contact us about any enquiry you may have.
Also attached to us are the 442nd Regimental Combat Team and the 51st Field Hospital.
The 442nd are a group dedicated to re-enacting soldiers of the U.S. Army who were of Japanese origin but born in America and who fought for Uncle Sam against the Germans, with an incredible record of bravery in combat.
The 51st Field Hospital are a highly dedicated and motivated group who portray the ANC of the 51st Field Hospitial. They aim to show a snapshot in time of a receiving ward of the field hospital near the front lines.
Feel Free to contact members of the 442 or the 51st if you have any enquiries.
Our association is made up of people of all ages with an interest in the Second World War, and specifically the American infantryman in the ETO.
We have a strong Southern England membership, but we are also very fortunate to have active members from accross the country and are always on the look-out for new recruits!
Whilst we strive to ensure everything we do is as historically accurate and authentic as possible, we do not take ourselves too seriously - our shows and gatherings are therefore lively and interactive events where cameraderie is the order of the day!
With an exceptionally busy calendar, we attend events all around the UK, and also regular trips to the Normandy coast, recreating life as an infantryman in the 29th; inlcuding static displays, encampments, vehicles and battle re-enactments
Take a look at our current events calendar to find out when we are next on the front line!
