Triples 2010: Re-Enactment Groups

There were several re-enactment groups at Triples this year. While having nothing against the groups in the past, thought it was time I paid more attention to them. In their particular uniforms, with their stands behind them, those in full costume looked very smart.

You may notice that those featured above, with the exception of The Thomas Stanley Retinue, are Napoleonics Re-enactment groups.

Le Garde Imperiale is based in the UK and France and open to all. They do small skirmishes, large battalion formed battles, a public drill display, seminars, concerts, TV work etc and in 2006 were involved with film work for the BBC and Chester University.

21 eme Regiment de Ligne otherwise known as The 21st Regiment of the Line, is one of Emperor Napoleon’s elite line Regiments and recreates its history from 1812 to 1815.

The Thomas Stanley Retinue are a Medieval Re-enactment group who specialise in the recreation of the Wars of the Roses. They also demonstrate combat techniques of the period including hand and pole weapons, black powder, archery and cavalry.

On a final note the 21st Regiment of the Line are will be leaving for the Waterloo Battlefield on June 16th 2010. The Regiment will also be taking part in a re-enactment of the battle for Plancenoit and camping on the Waterloo battlefield itself. Everyone welcome. Cost of the trip is £150.
