Not alot of interesting Reenactment groups near where I live in the UK.

However Carabino I have always had a love for the 18e. Teach me French and I will show up :)

(I was actually told I had to take French in school but I never showed up lol)

I understood you led some regiment named 18e on some game ?!

More seriously man, if you didn't show up in your school years, what make you think I can better teach you  ;D Actually it's very simple, you will juste have to say OUI everytime someone adresses at you !

If you check on the internet, you will find some good stuff we make as 18e in reenactement, even a regimental trailer ;)

Cool

Largest groups, or most groups reenacting the same regiment?

I am not entirely sure, I hardly know all of the groups, But I am guessing that the 8eme and maybe also the 9eme are some of the largest groups.

Imperial guard is reenacted by dozens of groups world wide (If you can count Imperial Guard as one group anyway). So theoretically there should be the most reenactors doing the imperial guard.
I think world-wide the 21e is one of the most reenacted regiments, I believe there is a group in the UK, 2 in the US, 1 in Australia, 1 in Russia.
I am guessing that the 95th Rifles are also very well reenacted, with groups world wide, I know at least of 3 groups.

But then again the 85eme also has 3 Groups... UK, NL and my own, which is European/German.

There are also at least two 18e, one in Poland/Czech Republic and one in France.


Problem with the French regiments is, that they are not strictly Line Infantry or Grenadiers or Light Infantry. Each regiment is made out of 3 parts. Fusilier, Grenadier and Voltigeur. So you naturally end up with one group reenacting the Voltigeurs and another group the Grenadiers (As is the case with the 18e, for example)

Yeah these shared names are pretty confusing sometimes !

As for the 18e, there is even another serious one made from ex-18e, to make more living-history events (you know them probably as Conscrits du Languedoc Olafson :) ).
The good thing these years is that there is a strong wish to unite groups on the battlefield, in order to have some real scale companies (as we did in waterloo), with a voltigeurs sections etc. So even if you are in a little Line Infantry group, you will have the chance to mix up and train with plenty other groups from different countries. And you can (and it's historical) follow your group as straight infantry most of the time and when it's necessary, become a voltigeur. For my part, it is what I do, i'm in the 18e (a line inf group) but when there is an occasion, I switch to the voltigeur's section "le peloton uni de voltigeurs".
