The Great War Society

The Great War Society was founded in 1984.

It is a non profit making organisation based in the United Kingdom. The aim of the Society is to provide an opportunity for practical research into the uniforms, weapons, equipment, training and everyday tasks of Great War soldiers, both of the Allied, and the Central powers.

Members of The Great War Society dress in uniforms and use equipment from the period of 1914-1918. The Society is a Living History group and not a battle re-enactment group.

Watch a video feature of The Great War Society taking part in the commemorative events for the 90th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme can be found in the “About” link on the Society website.

The Society is looking for new members! If you are over 17 years of age and would like to join visit the website at:
