    My daughter Holly and I met Razor and Phillip & gang at the Salute to the 1940s show on Saturday. Great guys all of them. Really informative and friendly. We had seen the display at the Oddessey a few weeks earlier. Love the facade of the French hotel. It speaks volumes.

  • Natt B (Sunday, September 11 22 07:21 pm BST)

    Just want to say thanks to razor, we met today at chatham dockyard an he gave me some great tips on my uniform, and made me feel a lot more relaxed wearing it! You guys had a great area too

  • Kurstie Cunningham (Saturday, September 10 22 07:59 pm BST)

    Thank you to Fluff and all the guys for chatting to us at the Dockyard today. We loved learning about the 101st!

    Dear screaming eagles lhg

    I would like to say a huge thank to all of the re-enacters for speaking to me today at military odyssey and an extra thank you to plug for showing me the weapons that were involved on d-day. Me and my Great Uncle had a wonderful time. Kind regards. Oliver Cant

  • Briggs Family (Tuesday, August 30 22 09:04 pm BST)

    Great to see you all at the Odyssey on Monday. Thanks for all the time you spent with our family showing us all the kit and letting us handle the weapons. Special shout out to Plug and Patsy who were very generous with their time. Thanks guys. :)

  • Philippa Yates (Monday, August 29 22 11:44 am BST)

    What a fabulous group of gentlemen. Darren and the rest of his team were brilliant with our son (and the rest of our family) at Military Odyssey. They’ve made his year ! They were extremely generous with their own time, gave us so much valuable advice and information to help our little chap on his reenactment journey. I really can’t thank them enough. Extremely knowledgeable, professional, friendly and personable. They went above and beyond to help us and we look forward to keeping in touch ! Thank you

  • Lynne Hellens (Tuesday, July 05 22 07:19 pm BST)

    Thank you guys for making my son James's day at the Capel Military Show. You explained all the equipment, let him hold the weapons and were very knowledgeable and friendly. I learnt a lot too thanks again!

  • Joshua (Sunday, July 03 22 01:52 am BST)

    Saw the lads at Capel show yesterday and they were all extremely friendly. The uniform, weapons and set piece looked brilliant.

  • S M Phillips (Saturday, July 02 22 09:21 pm BST)

    Met 2 fellas at caple military show who were brilliant with our kids, letting them get hands on with some rifles and pistols. Knowledge was brilliant, they were friendly and approachable and eager to share their wealth of knowledge. Forgive me i forgot exactly the names but I think one was bin and the other eludes me. Looked like a lot of time had gone into their rigs and they sat there in the sun fully kitted and still smiling. Top job.

  • Alan Copeman (Saturday, July 02 22 07:23 pm BST)

    Just got back from Capel. It may not have been Normandy shortly after D Day but it certainly felt like a film set for Band of Brothers. Just like the film the soldiers seemed real. Excellent, thanks

  • Maxim bordessoule (Saturday, July 02 22 06:03 pm BST)

    Would like to say a genuine thanks to Patsy and Plug at the Capel military show. I came over to take a couple photos and ask some questions and they told me about anything and everything i asked for, even telling me unique and suprissing information about some of the replica/authentic firearms they had. They are where truly fantastic and it was a fantastic experience.

  • Giovanna Guerra (Wednesday, June 15 22 11:50 am BST)

    I really enjoyed the recent Overlord Show. The Screaming Eagles were extremely informative and very interesting. I am a Peruvian national and would like to express my thanks to Patsy and his colleague for all their knowledge, time and patience explaining, demonstrating, as well as giving me the opportunity to interact with some of the display items for myself. I thoroughly enjoyed the talk and look forward to visiting them at future events.

  • Jon Pearson (Tuesday, June 07 22 02:05 pm BST)

    Patsy and Fester were great with my son Theo at the Overlord show in Denmead, they spent time taking him through all the weapons and he absolutely loved it, thanks guys!

  • Katherine Kitching (Monday, June 06 22 06:23 am BST)

    We went to the Overlord show this weekend, the screaming eagles were brilliant and put on a brilliant display. Patsy in particular spent time with my son , he explained all the weapons brilliantly and my son thoroughly enjoyed talking to him.

  • Will Paffett (Saturday, June 04 22 08:21 pm BST)

    Hey I’m a royal marine cadet and I saw this group at overlord festival 2022 and they were very nice and approachable, they let us handle the weapons and take pictures with the members while learning a bit of the history of the unit they represent. Their kit and uniforms looked spot on to me and their set of the hotel de France is always a nice touch - very good group!

  • Emma (Saturday, June 04 22 06:21 pm BST)

    We are just back from the Overlord Show and met your wonderful team. What a fantastic group of knowledgeable and friendly chaps! Special shout-out to Patsy for all the time he gave us and the knowledge he shared. Hope to see you all again soon 😊

  • James (Monday, May 16 22 06:00 pm BST)

    I met Company E with my 3 sons at Tilford on 7th May. Thanks for being so welcoming. The boys enjoyed trying your kit and learning some history. Hope to see you at Overlord!

  • Brooke (Wednesday, May 11 22 04:50 pm BST)

    I visited Tilford, Village at war on Sat 7th May and met Fluff and Gorby, I really enjoyed their presentation, they gave lots of information on the equipment and jeep that they drove around in.

  • Julie Stenning (Sunday, September 19 21 06:01 pm BST)

    We were at Salute to the 40s at Chatham Historic Dock Yard this weekend and met these very lovely gentlemen, who allowed me to take a splendid phot of them as well as join them in a photo together. Thankyou gentlemen and lovely meeting you.

  • Michael (Sunday, August 29 21 10:45 pm BST)

    Great to see your group at Military Odyssey today & thanks for welcoming my 10yr old son in his para uniform,even though he is badged up as 82nd airborne. Such a great photo I’ve got of my son with some of the group too.

  • Wioleta (Saturday, July 10 21 11:59 am BST)

    We met Screaming Eagles (Raisin and his mates) at the Battles for Victory Show and we loved them. They showed us their equipment and they were very friendly and informative.

  • Aaron Williamson (Sunday, November 17 19 01:17 pm GMT)

    It was great to see these guys at the Brooklands military vehicle event this morning, My son was fascinated by all the Jeeps on display and particularly loved holding the Machine gun that one of the members showed him ( what 7 year old wouldn’t !!) .

  • Marjolijn (Friday, September 20 19 02:03 pm BST)

    Saw these guys at the Oorlogsmuseum in Overloon, The Netherlands.

  • Fiona Henderson (Tuesday, July 02 19 03:04 pm BST)

    I'd like to say a huge thank you to you all. Just been to Tankfest and of course we visited you. My two sons absolutely loved your display (as did my husband and myself) we were blown away by the accuracy - it felt like we had stepped back in time to WWII. We are thrilled with the pictures you kindly posed for with us. Anyway, keep on doing your thing and hopefully we will run in to you again some day - might be a while as we live in the North of Scotland! Thank you again.

  • Péter Szabó (Tuesday, July 02 19 02:58 pm BST)

    Thanks for this amazing experience on Sunday! It was wonderful to see you guys, touch weapons and rifles and watching Fury in real life! I even gave a gift to Fury because I'm a huge fan :)

  • Kriss Cronin (Monday, July 01 19 08:23 pm BST)

    Saw these boys today at Bovington tank museum for Tank Fest and all I can say is that their kit and look is the closest you can get to the real thing without having a time machine back to D-Day. Outstanding. They were very very kind lads too.

  • A Hue (Monday, June 24 19 08:46 pm BST)

    75th Anniversary D-Day Commemorative Convoy
    We had the pleasure of meeting Fluff today at Newbury College. My Grandson Max, loved talking to you, holding the gun and wearing the helmet. So important for the younger generation to hear about the wars. Thank you so much for taking the time to teach him. He hasn’t stopped talking about his day!

  • Andy (Sunday, June 02 19 06:22 pm BST)

    Saw these guys at the denmead event, they were fantastic, and great with our kids too. Some good photos taken. Thankyou

    Tankfest 2018 - "Best living history display was these guys with their demolished Hotel de France 101st Airborne display"

  • Gordon Brosseau (Friday, July 20 18 05:20 pm BST)

    I saw your group at tankfest this year. You have a great display. Loved the hotel. Thanks allot to Jedi, hell boy and especially to fluff. Thanks for letting me play with your tommy gun. Great job.

  • Fred (Thursday, July 05 18 08:02 am BST)

    Saw you Friday at Tankfest and just wanted to say that your group was really authentic and looked like you were "in active duty" with so many realistic details ! Many thanx to Fluff, Hellboy & Jeddi for being nice & fun! Long live and best regards from Switzerland.Fred

  • Nigel jacobs (Monday, July 02 18 06:37 pm BST)

    Loved your display at Tankfest, just like the real thing, well done

  • Martin Bruus (Sunday, July 01 18 08:18 pm BST)

    Just spent the weekend at Tankfest with my son and nephew. Would just like to say you were by far the best reinactment group on show this weekend. You all looked spot on and had the knowledge to go with it. Well done guys and keep up the good work. Without people like you the younger generation would never learn about the war. 👍

  • Kate Ovington (Saturday, June 30 18 10:12 pm BST)

    What a brill set up for your
    re enactment. Completely different from other scenarios at Tankfest, and great to have some conversation and interaction!
