About the Heritage Group

Preservation, Research and Commemoration

The Heritage Group was formed over 20 years ago to pursue Research, Preservation and Commemoration of Military History.

The Group’s aims are to promote and foster interest in Military History, and to bring this history alive for the younger generation.

The Heritage Group is a non-political organisation, and does not glorify war, nor do we concern ourselves with the politics, politicians and propoganda.

We focus on the individuals who served, survived and in far too many cases, gave their all.
