THE SCOTTISH MILITARY
RE-ENACTMENT SOCIETY ~
This page provides
information about a military re-enactment group based in the south of Scotland.
About the Society
The Scottish Military Re-enactment Society was raised in
1993. The intention was then, and is now, to ensure that the memory of those men and women who
fought for the allied cause during World War II, shall never be forgotten. The
Society is a non profit making organisation although it has taken part in
fundraising events for various charities, including the annual collection for
the Scottish Poppy Appeal.
The Society participates in many events during the year. A
typical weekend can include the static display of equipment, uniforms, weapons
and vehicles. We also have a large tent which houses our audio-visual
presentation as well as a "hands on" equipment display.
Training weekends can be arranged for Field-Craft, Map
Reading, Weapons Handling and, if you are really keen, Drill! (Photos opposite
show a Small Scale Raiding Force in operation).
Units within SMRS include: a Combined Operations Section in
particular the Small Scale Raiding Force, the Special Operations Executive,
Airborne (British and American), Infantry, Royal Navy, Home Guard and the Auxiliary
Membership is open to anyone who is aged 16 or over. Please
don't hesitate to get in touch with one of the following office bearers who will
tell you more about the SMRS and its activities and answer any questions you
might have without any obligation to join.

Finally, and most importantly, let us not forget why we do
this - for those gallant people who made the ultimate sacrifice many years ago
and for those who remain in ever smaller numbers.
We will remember them.
