Fellow club members John and Kerryn Jenner are involved in an Army Cadet Unit, “Legion of Frontiersmen”. These young Australian boys and girls do a fantastic job in the community and are heavily involved on Anzac Days carrying the banners identifying marching units.

John has issued an invitation to all WVCG members and friends to attend a fund raiser Cabaret at the Enfield Hotel on the 23rd August 2014, the featured entertainer will be Linda McCarthy. So we suggest you organise a group and place the date in your calendar.

Centenary of World War One Commemoration


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.

Mount Crawford Forest Event

RSA and WVCG staged a combined re-enactment of battles fought in France in 1944 in Crawford forest on Saturday 21st September 2013. RSA provided allied troops in the form of British Army infantry, German Luftwaffe paratroops (Fallschirmjäger), and Wehrmacht infantry. WVCG provided Mick Jenner’s “captured” jeep in German livery, and Rick Shearman’s Greyhound. Also provided was Doug Greville’s Kettenkrad, a German half track motor cycle.

The jeep and Kettenkrad were mainly used for transporting the German troops around the battle area, but the jeep was also used in an armed reconnaissance. At one stage, the jeep was used to repatriate a Wehrmacht soldier to base camp who had injured his knee during a battle. Later in the day Rick’s Greyhound was brought into service to flush out the Germans hiding in cover in an ambush, the 37mm gas-fired cannon making much noise.

Mick Jenner’s jeep was subsequently “destroyed” in its hiding position by Alan Newton firing the cannon on the Greyhound.

All involved enjoyed the day’s activities, and a further event is planned for the new year (after fire season) when the event will be expanded to include more vehicles in active engagements. The Crawford Forest venue is excellent, with varying wooded terrain and many interesting tracks. Its such a pleasant place to hold a battle. All WVCG members are encouraged to provide their vehicles  for the next event. More later.
