Re: WANTED - African American WWII Reenactors

Hello,

No I havent been able to get to the UK yet.We have the same problem here inthe U.S. trying to get Blacks into 20th Century Living History.
It is nice to see that you are making an effort to recognize Blacks.Most folks dont even realize that over half of the Red Ball Express was Black troops.I have a 1943 Chevy 1-1/2 ton Cargo truck.I have it restored as a 92nd Div.Truck.It has taken 1st place at some vehicle shows.Mr George Hardy and I are still hard at work getting more Black WW2 participants.

I hope you all will be interested in WW1 as well.We have finally been able to get more blacks out for WW1 after 17yrs.My assistant Mr.Jim Ball have been constantly posting info on the 372nd.It is a very often overlooked unit with an excellent combat record.My Great uncle Pvt. George Ford was a member of 1stBn 372nd Inf D.C. National Guard.We primarily focus on Living Histories.Feel free to conttact us and thnk you for the inventation.You have my support.

Richard Ford
