Willing participants volunteer their time to further public education and awareness of the sacrifices made by soldiers and civilians of all nations during both World Wars.

Schools Program

Re-enact SA has engaged in numerous educational displays where students can feel and wear uniforms and field equipment, experience the food and living conditions of the common WW1 and WW2 soldier. It is our goal to keep the memory of our service men and women alive through educational opportunities.The feedback from our program has been positive and is encouraging us to continue to develop this scheme.

Raising the First Contingent - 2014 

Formed in South Australia in 1914, the 10th Battalion trained at Morphettville Racecourse before being sent over to join the fight in Gallipoli and later the Western Front. With help from a grant from the Department of Veterans affairs and other clubs from around Australia, Re-enact SA set out to commemorate the 100th anniversary by re-creating the recruitment camp that was at the racecourse and provide participants and the public an opportunity for what it would have been like for the young lads who eagerly signed up at the outbreak of war.

 

On the final day, the group marched down Anzac Highway to Glenelg lead by full military marching band. The march to Glenelg was common training for the troops. Here a ceremony was held attended by the Governor and other distinguished guests in Moseley square.
