The group in Holland

Welcome to the website of the 43rd Recce Living History Group. The aim of this group is to recreate as accurately as possible the 43rd Reconnaisance Regiment between 1944 and 1945. The regiment served as the divisional recce regiment for 43rd (Wessex) Division in North-West Europe.

Latest news

Currently the Reenactment calendar is very much up in the air because of the ongoing Coronavirus crisis. As it stands, the group will not attend Tilford in May. Please visit the Facebook page for the latest information.

Looking for stories

We are looking for anyone who has any family stories about the regiment who would like to share it with us as we would like a section on here dedicated to the veterans who served with the regiment during WWII. Please use the contact form to get in touch.


Our vehicles

The group operates several vehicles. Have a look at one of the vehicles we use, the very popular Ford Universal Carrier Mk2.
