You would have to be a member of a specific group, own specific issue kit, weapons, etc. Also, you can't be a re-enactor for non-Canadian events, like Somalia, the U.S., or any other places we haven't been.
It sounds like an interesting endeavour, but I really don't know what the outcome of all this will be. But I suppose that someone has to start the ball rolling and see where it goes.
Er, why could we not re-enact events that say Canada was not apart of? We have people "Skruface" above that do "medieval" times re-enactments. I've part taken in medieval events before, and it was not as a Canadian soldier trying to hold off the English! Because, seriously if you can find a text book that says we had troops waging war flying the Canadian colours in say the "Crusades" then you sir have found a book full of shit.
And all we'd need to do to fix the issue of specific "kits" ((some people do make their own anyway)) is simply address it with that this group is comprised of people that enjoy this as a hobby. And we are all on our own budgets. Unless this progresses and we get gov. grants to feilds and such were we could start building up rental "kits" that we could get more people involved with. Same as the re-enactor groups out there today do it. Go down and rent a red coat and try to fight off the Blue coats.
