2nd Rhode Island Regiment in the UK

Back in the 80s and 90s in Britain there was a small but good Revwar scene and one of the groups active were the 2nd Rhode Island regiment. Based in the UK's smallest city, Wells they were built around a nucleus of young lads who had known each other since kindergarten.  The 2nd Rhode Island were what would now be called a 'hardcore' unit - cooking all their authentic food on the fire and smoking their clay pipes.
If you are wondering about the fort in the picture it is in Hampshire and is a place where buckskinners hang out - Fort George.


  1. These pictures are excellent. I am what you might call a 'hardcore' re-enactor, although I'm not doing any at the moment. I'm not fanatical - but I do prefer Living History and feel we owe it to our comrades and to the the public to look right. The 2nd Rhode Island Regiment look good.

  2. Is this group no long around?.
