Allied Assortment portray a wide variety of allied aspects of the Second World War (1939 to 1945) including both military and civilian. We are always on the lookout for more members interested in joining our friendly and family oriented group. We only take Allied applications.
Although the majority of our members live in and around Milton Keynes we have members throughout the country, and we also have strong links with the other similar membership groups. We can often be found attending 1940s shows and events throughout the country and have built up good relationships with many of the other re-enactment groups that are active on the circuit.
We’re primarily a not-for-profit organisation, with any revenue generated by our activities being ploughed back into the running costs of the group. Our members all volunteer their services and are bound by their membership to behave responsibly and in a manner appropriate to the period being portrayed.
As with other groups, we do have rule’s that we stick to. We don’t allow members to portray a uniform or theatre that wouldn’t have been open to them during the war. For example, women don’t carry guns (unless resistance), children don’t wear front line uniforms until 16 years old. This is to maintain realism. Members are expected to be self sufficient, providing their own transport and accommodation to shows. Uniforms, weapons and equipment are all supplied by the member at their own cost.
We currently portray the following:
Airborne Troops – Glider Pilot Regiment and Airborne troops.
Army Commando – No’s 3 Commando.
Royal Air Force – WAAF and Aircrew.
Home Front – Red Cross, civilian, WVS and evacuees.
Local Regiments – Bedfordshire & Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire Battalion.
