The Queen's Own
Royal West Kent Regiment Living History Group

Remembering the men of Kent

Helping a new generation
discover its past

Why Living History?

Our primary objective is to honour the memory of those who lost their lives fighting for their country, particularly the Queen's Own Royal West Kent Regiment and The Buffs (Royal East Kent Regiment).

We offer an opportunity for practical research into the uniforms, weapons, equipment, training, and everyday life of the Great War Soldiers. Our focus is on education and research, and we pride ourselves on being a living history group rather than just a battle re-enactment group.

Our members dress in period uniforms and equipment, providing an accurate portrayal of the activities of the time. We attend events to showcase displays of uniform and equipment, and assist individuals interested in learning more about their relatives who fought during the Great War.
