5th D.C.L.I. Re-enactment Society

I've had a keen interest in the 5th Battalion Duke of Cornwall's Regiment for a long time now but had no idea that there is a very active re-enactment society dedicated to recreating the 2nd and 5th D.C.L.I. in both a 1940 and 1944 guise. The wierd bit is that it's not here in the U.K. as you'd expect but over the pond in the U.S.A. They're based in the Chicago area and clearly doing a splendid job when it comes to accuracy and attention to detail. There are some excellent photos of webbing and kit on the website which are great as painting references too!
