Welcome to the British Airborne Re-enactment Society website
The British Airborne Re-enactment Society was formed back in 1995, when 6 W.W.II re-enactors got together to form a single group, to portray one of the most famous fighting forces in wartime history,
the famous red berets, the destinguished soldiers of the British Airborne Forces. The British Airborne Re-enactment Society and its members are involved in many different activities, these include the following.
Our members attend many public shows throughout the summer months, normally betwwen April and September, these can range from just a mobile display where we walk around in either dress uniforms or full battle order, to complete arena displays with mock battles, blank ammunition, vehicles and pyrotechnics.
Living History Displays
Our Living history display have won awards in the past, and consist of a diorama depicting a small British encampment during "Operation Market Garden" the battle for the Arnhem Bridge.
Private training weekends and battles
As we portray a military unit, our members can attend regular training weekend camps organised by ourselves at Whittington Barracks near Lichfield (Staffordshire), where we teach drill (foot and rifle), weapon handeling and safety (all members must pass a firearme safety test before being able to take part in a battle), fieldcraft etc. dont worry, we dont do long route marches and assault courses.
Film and Television work
We are occasionally contacted by various film companies to supply re-enactors for certain production they are doing. B.A.R.S. has been involved in productions for the History Channel, the Animal Chanel, Atlantic Productions and Tiger Aspect Chanel.
