95thRLHS - About Our Society

Our Society consists of people from all walks of life; male and female, young and old alike, coming together to share a passion for recreating a part of our military heritage.  We enjoy and take pride in what we do, entertaining and enlightening members of the public to this period in history, through our shows and events.  We are a family orientated unit with partners and children welcomed.

Annually, between March and October, we take part in events such as battle re-enactments, training and drill, parades and proms.

As a "living history" society we usually set up a period encampment consisting of period canvas tents, equipment, cooking methods and utensils that assist us in 'living' and depicting the way of life!

95th Rifles Living History Society foundations were established in 1973 as an experimental group of riflemen re-enactors and developed into its present format in 1975.  The Society has developed steadily into one of the finest and well-respected, Napoleonic re-enactment groups at home and abroad.

We are not limited to just one regiment and, indeed, one representative country.

The Society is composed of 2 brother regiments that are an integral part of its structure;

The British 95th (Rifle) Regiment of Foot and
The French
62eme Regiment d'Infanterie de Ligne.

As one of the founding members of the Napoleonic Association; representing the
 
1st Battalion, 95th (Rifle) Regiment of Foot;  we take part in events and shows across the UK and Europe.
