A Welcome Note...

Dear Visitor,

Welcome to the website for the 89 / 317 FSS Re-enactment Group.

I hope you have time to look through this website, the purpose of which is educate and inform both to the historical aspect of the airborne field security sections during the Second World War, and to the re-enactment group that is 89FSS.  You'll also find histories on the other impressions that we do (see Re-enactment for more detail).

We also affiliate ourselves to a number of other British airborne re-enactment groups as part of our wider association with the 39-45 Living History Society.  This website also has histories behind each of these other British airborne groups as well (see Affiliated Groups, and the Site Map for a full list)

To navigate you way around the pages, please use the menu bar to your left.

A full site map explaining the different sections that can be found in this website can be found here.  Please do have a look as it will give you a better idea of what can be found on this site.

This site is continually developing, with new information, new histories, etc, so  please do come back again.

If you wish to leave a comment about the site please do so via the guestbook.

Best Wishes,


Tracing Your Family's Military History

We receive many requests from visitors wishing to trace their own family's history during WW2. To help, we have written a short guide to help you in your quest.  Please remember, we are group of re-enactors with a great deal of knowledge on our subject.  Whilst we will do what we can to help you with any query or question you may have, we don't have a direct access to service records or personal histories - however we will help in pointing you in the right direction.  If we do know, we'll let you know!
