A LOCAL history group is looking for volunteers for re-enactments at Fort Nelson.

The Ubique Right of the Line Living History Group is based up at the Royal Armouries Museum at Fort Nelson, near Fareham.

The group is looking for volunteers to re-enact the shooting of guns from past conflicts such as the First and Second World Wars and the Falklands conflict.

The Napoleonic period is also re-enacted at the museum.

Roger Glancefield, chairman of the Ubique Right of the Line Living History Group, said: ‘We are looking for some more recruits.

‘We are looking for some younger blood to come in and get some training and carry on with the gun firing.

‘The most important thing is the uniforms.

‘I have been doing this for 15 years. Once you have got the uniform on and you see the gun in front of you, you go back to that period.

‘It’s strange to describe it.

‘We try to portray the particular period that the uniform and the gun comes from. It’s a great experience.’
