Programme Notes: CTMT 2008

“The Heritage Group consists of a number of Capetonians from all walks of life who are interested in the preservation of military history and honour the memory of those who served, its particular interest being World War II. It provides a meeting place for collectors and researchers, and provides services such as consultancy, research and equipment for film, photographic and documentary work.

The Group also has a re-enactment component, which goes to great trouble and expense to portray South African, Italian, German, American and British soldiers, as authentically as possible, and it owns a number of beautifully restored World War II vehicles.

Always willing to step outside its primary field of research, the Group will provide both the 18th century pikemen and World War II desert soldiers for the CTMT 2008.” (CTMT 2008)
