Our friends Karamvir Banga and Richard Szabo put together this short as a means to show the public what we do, why we do it and the dedication that we put in to educate the public. Also, how some things never change and through research and experimentation, we can see just how much some things remain the same.
Karamvir and Richard, will be expanding this work, covering the group and the era, at large, showing the lives of living historians (not just myself) and how we aim to educate the public, while keeping the highest of standards. This is an entirely new project that was inspired by the original project for Sheridan College.
Within this first short, we are using a mixture of uniforms and kit, as we attended a drill that I arranged, thanks to the wonderful cooperation of Fort York. The intention of the drill was to show the public a variety of units that fought within and around both Ontario and specifically Fort York, along with sharing some unique things, such as sword drill.
This short is a not for profit piece, for an educational project and general public education and awareness.
We think that Karamvir and his team did an incredible job!
