The aim of The East Yorkshire Regiment Living History Group is to authentically and responsibly portray elements of the East Yorkshire Regiment and preserve, restore and display vehicles, uniforms, period weapons and associated artifacts relating to the Regiment.
The East Yorks are one of the longest serving British Infantry re-enactment groups in the UK. We attend living history events mainly in the north and the midlands areas. The main focus of the group is the north-west European campaign of 1944/45 whilst also having the ability to display the East Yorks from the early war period. The group has been involved with many major events around the country including Kirkby Hall and Dover Castle. We have also put on displays for the Normandy Veterans Association.
We are in regular contact with a number of 2nd Battalion WW2 East Yorks veterans who support our aims in keeping their old regiment in the public eye.
We are a friendly bunch and always on the look out for like-minded people to join us. Why not come along and give it a try. Don’t worry if you don't have any kit, we will have spare kit to lend to prospective members.
