We are a Living History and Re-enactment group, representing one of the famous British Army Regiments of the early 19th Century - The 44th East Essex.  The 44th has a long history stretching back to its origination in 1748 and through subsequent changes and amalgamations. Its roots are embodied in the current Royal Anglian Regiment.

This site will give you the opportunity to find out virtually everything there is to know about our group and the 44th itself - Our History, what we do and where we go, both at home and overseas.
