As individual members you can interpret whatever and how many periods you wish with the groups main focus being the interpretation of the history of the Kennedy Regiment in its various roles and periods.
We do ask that a commitment be made to undertake training so as to be active at display days and to research activities and particulars relevant to the period you are portraying so that you can contribute to to our displays.
For those who are collectors, our hut has display areas that are often changed and as a member you are welcome to set up your own gear for the public to see.
Active members can also undertake live fire range shooting of period firearms and blank firing when appropriate, which allows for period qualification activities.
We have our own hut at Jezzine Barracks, Kissing Point, Townsville where each week we display one of the different periods of Townsvilles military history.
You may wish to undertake and display military skills, or simply be in uniform or period clothing and take tea and be social, perhaps display your collection of memorabilia. You can if you wish undertake and display period crafts or a trade, and of course families and children are also very welcome.
Our main activities take place at Hut 28 Jezzine Barracks, Townsville on Sundays from 10am till 1pm but if we are not there we are probably attending a function, heritage or commemorative events somewhere in the region.
