Neither the Arizona 6th Airborne Division 3rd Parachute Brigade reenactment group or its members are affiliated in any way with any radical political organization (i.e. KKK, Aryan Nation, American Nazi Party, etc.). Nor do we embrace the philosophies or the actions of the original NSDAP (The Nazi Party).
Welcome to the Arizona 6th British Airborne Division 3rd Parachute Brigade reenactment group home page.
Until early 2012 our groups primary impression was 30 Assault Unit (a specialty intelligence gathering Commando unit) which we portrayed since 2005. Our group has retained this impression as our official secondary. The groups current primary impression is now the 3rd Brigade of the British 6th Airborne Division. We are also currently the only organized AZ based WW2 reenactment group that depicts WW2 British/Commonwealth troops.
During WW2 the 3rd Parachute Brigade was a part of the British 6th Airborne Division. The 3rd Para Brigade consisted of 3 battalions, the 8th Parachute Battalion, the 9th Parachute Battalion (which were both British) and the 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion. Our group portrays the men of the 9th Para Battalion and the 1st Canadian Para Battalion.
The Arizona 6th Airborne Division 3rd Parachute Brigade reenactment group is dedicated to being as authentic as possible in both appearance and personal conduct. It is our goal to present an historically accurate and professional impression to both the public and our fellow re-enactors. We do this out of respect for the men who served in the Allied armed forces during Second World War.
So if you are interested in joining an AZ WW2 reenacting group, contact our unit leader for more information by clicking on our links/contacts page.
We need YOUR help keeping history alive. RED DEVILS!!!!
