The Centenary of WW1 is upon us. Re-enact SA invites The Wartime Conservation Vehicle Group to help us commemorate the first year, 1914, by helping us create a ‘time line’ of South Australia’s earlier history that leads up to the First World War. From this foundation, it is hoped you can attend again to the remaining years through to 1918 (2015, 2016, 2017 & 2018).
We are hoping to have represented the 1880’s through to 1945 with vehicles, artillery and historical displays with the special focus on WW1.
When: 20th & 21st September 2014 (Set up 19 September).
This date was significant in that all AIF formations raised in South Australia to answer the call, joined forces and marched through the streets of Adelaide.
Where: Morphettville Racecourse. This was where the 10th Battalion was raised, trained and camped prior to embarkation.
If you can attend please advise what level of interest there may be for forward planning reasons.
We request a current copy of your Public Liability Insurance (PLI) sent to the below email prior to the event to ensure participation.
Note: as it is a WW1 focus, parades and ceremonies will only involve WW1 elements. WW2 and other camps will be represented for the weekend to promote your club and our collective military history.
