We are still waiting on a lot of response, but heres a bit of team news:

Ex-Middlesbrough and England centre-forward Andy Campbell has signed for the Team. Andy was part of Middlesbrough’s promotion winning 1997-98 season, and played for England at under 21 and senior level.

Ex-Arsenal Left winger Perry Groves has signed for the Team. Perry was part of Arsenal’s 1990-91 league title winning team, and is still considered by many fans as one of Arsenal’s all-time best players.

Ex-Ipswich, Colchester and England legendary central defender Kevin Beattie has signed for the team. Kevin also appeared in the film ‘Escape to Victory’ as Michael Caine's body double. During filming Beattie beat Sylvester Stallone in an arm wrestling competition which Stallone didn't take too well and didn't speak to Beattie for the rest of filming, especially as Stallone had only recently made a 'Rocky' film, and was beaten right & left-handed.

Actor Duncan Pow has signed for the team. A Scottish actor best known in his role in Sky One's Dream Team, as Liam Mackay the captain of Harchester United F.C. and as Linden Cullen in the BBC1 medical drama, Holby City.


And a bit of Event News:

The event will open from 11:30 to 18:00 hrs on the 5th June
The displays outside the stadium will include bouncy castle, A display of military vehicles, 1940s classic vehicles, military stalls, raffles, refreshments and fundraising stalls.
Refreshments within the stadium will be open as normal prior to the game.
Tickets are available online through Colchester United and at their ticket office with some available on the day.
Kick off will be at 2:30pm

Pre kick off, the national anthems will be played by Royal legion Brass Band!

Halftime performance from Colchester Pipe and Drums marching band
Performances before the show and at halftime by legendary 1940’s singer and burlesque hottie Kitten Von Mew is set to send the pulses racing. Not to worry though Mums and Dads, it’s a family friendly performance!

The Parachute Regiment, newly returned from Afghanistan will be making an appearance at the event. These brave lads will also be taking part in parade through the town at a later date. Welcome home boys, you’ve done us proud.

Local station “Heart radio” are providing coverage and the ‘Heart Angels' will be appearing during the day.


More as it comes in..............

Please can everyone who has committed themselves to E2V2 whether its a off pitch role or military vehicle please pm me with names and/or what types of vehicle etc. I am going to produce some back stage like passes so you will be able to move freely throughout the event. Players should respond to Neil Robertson. Please just pm me on this forum with contact details and nearer the time I will send out all the info for arrival times, travel instructions and kit requirements etc etc.

Please ask your friends and relatives to come to the show or sponsor you for the event, we want to raise as much money as we can for the amount of effort we are all putting in.

A massive thank you for all the support we have had so far, remember this is a reflection of the great people within our re-enactment community.

Well with less than 70 days to go I`m a little disappointed with the response by our fellow re-enactors. when we started this project with the Royal British Legion We thought that such a high profile event would be totally supported by our re-enactment community. We all enjoy the hobby and to have WW2 re-enactment seen to be doing something special for the good of our wounded in conflict has a great feel good factor and a sign of respect. It also provides a great profile for all of us who are involved with the WW2 re-enacting hobby.
I realise that not everyone can attend due to other commitments but show a little support to all the hard work that has been put into this project by sponsoring the guys who have offered their time. If we all put in a few quid then with the gift aid situation we could really make a difference. I`ve put my donation in please join me. If you can attend with your family for a great day out then tickets are available now.
thanks Dave

Great news The British Legion have arranged somewhere to sleep for any re-enactors who want to turn up on the day before the event. We have secured the Colchester TA centre which can hold up to 50 of us plus 30 vehicles. this means anyone who has a fair distance to travel with or without a Military vehicle can stay there with their vehicles safe and secure. Extra bonus is there is a bar and for a cost we can have sandwiches and hot drinks on tap. Camp beds and sleeping bags etc will be required obviously. Anyone who wants to take up this offer must pm me with name and vehicle Registration number as soon as possible please.

Fellow Re-enactors, I need your help...
Does anyone know any body personally that works within the press or TV media? I have been bashing my head against the wall for months and getting nowhere with the national media. If you know someone who could help then please could you PM me with some details. Obviously contact the person first so I`m not just cold calling.
Thank you
Dave
