NEXT JOINT EVENT – Re-enact SA and the WVCG will be conducting a tactical event at Mt Crawford Forest. On Friday 25th – Sunday 27th July 2014.



This is to give WVCG members advance notice of a joint club event  to be held by WVCG and RSA in the Mount Crawford forest on the 26 –27 July 2014.

 This is a joint venture between the two clubs. The WVCG members will supply the vehicles and be part of the re enactment battle between allied and Axis forces. The re enactment battle on the weekend of 26-27 July will be part of “Operation Market Garden” . The battle for the bridge in Nijmegen— Holland in 1944. 

It should be a great experience for all those participating and  for WVCG members to use their vehicles as they were used in WW2.  The RSA will be in the forest for 3 days, but the main battle will be on Saturday, 26th July, it will be up to individual members as to how long they wish to stay, but the main day of battle is on the Saturday so if you can make it for that day, that would be fantastic.

The battles will be as realistic as the actual  battles fought using blank ammunition and pyrotechnics to simulate the real thing. This will be a great experience for those of you who have not previously been involved in battle Re enactment before.

As this is only an advance notice, it would be appreciated if you would place the date in your diary. Further information updates will be forwarded  as we get closer to the date. In the meantime I am looking for expressions of interest from WVCG members and request you advise me of the following so we can allocated  vehicles to respective units, either as Allies or Axis.

You will be required to wear what ever uniform and kit you have. Further instructions later.  If you can make it please advise the editor below of the following:

 1. Your name and contact number.

  2. Your vehicle, type and make.

 3. How long you are staying . ( weekend or just the day of battle ).

 4. What military equipment you have ie; uniforms kit weapons etc.

We are looking for good support of WVCG members on the day.
