You have reached the 21.Infanterie Division Living History Society, a non-profit living history society located in the UK. We are a collection of WWII historians and German vehicle enthusiasts that endeavor to keep the memories, sights, sounds, and smells of the late war 1944-1945 period alive.

Along with military historians and WW2 hobbyists, we also have within the society a collection of German wartime vehicle enthusiasts who are extremely active in various restoration projects throughout the year

 

The 21st Infantry Division is a WW2 living history Society established 2014. Although We are nationally based group with experienced reenactors from all over the UK we are fortunate to have a home which is The Lincolnsfields Forties experience Museum,Bushey, Hertfordshire, a unique, hands on, WW2 living history attraction located at the site of the WW2 operational HQ of the USAAF 8th Fighter Command.

 

We are collectors and enthusiasts who provide authoritative and professional living-history displays for the public, as well as recreation battlefield scenarios and overnight tactical events for all members.

What we do? We are an extremely busy group which is active all year round. We aim to hold at least one event per month for members to get together such as below..

  • Public WW2 Events
  • Professional photography
  • Film & TV extras
  • WW2 prop construction
  • Period vehicle restoration
  • WW2 Airsoft events
  • Private Battle Weekends
  • Bushey Hall 1940's Museum open days(Monthly)

Our members therefore wear historically accurate uniforms, operate authentic or original vehicles,weaponry and equipment, and research the “day-to-day” life of the German Soldier on the eastern front - so as to correctly inform the audience.

The group is experienced in providing a professional body of extras for film and television.We aim to provide projects with a body of men complete with 100% realistic uniforms, weapons,equipment, vehicles and more importantly mindset.

Our members are all members of the All Fronts Re-enactment Association (AFRA), which provides

benefits such as valid TPPLI and other relevant insurances along with current up to date information

and support from the UK home office.

 

 

New members are always welcome, and we can provide advice and assistance to help you organise your impression, we even have a group uniform kit-pool of both German and soviet kit to get you involved in your first event at no cost.

We take part in both battle reenactments and private battles involving the use of pyrotechnics, blank firing, replicas, vehicles and props. Event scenarios are written around realistic WW2 historical objectives and themed battles.

we use authentic squad formations, tactics and german commands, period camping is also encouraged to add a sense of realism and really transport the reenactor back into WW2..
