Imjin Barracks - Warrent Officers' & Sergeants' Mess - D-Day Themed Christmas Party
7th November 2019
Gloucester Community Networking and our W.O.R.S. 'War Out Reach in Schools' educational project was asked to support a D-Day themed Christmas Party at the WO&Sgt Mess at Imjin Barracks, Innsworth, Gloucester ».
GCN Volunteers also included Veterans from the Alabare Homeless Veterans Charity » in the setting up the W.O.R.S. Mobile Trench, fake Sentry Fire acted as the entrance to the Mess. GCN Volunteers Chris Auker-Howlett & Patrick Meulbrouck welcomed party guests, dressed as WW2 British Sentries.
GCN W.O.R.S. Volunteers were dressed in British and American WW2 uniforms and supported party guests with uniforms and decommissioned rifles and machine guns for staged photos.
Other W.O.R.S. resources were used around the Mess to add the the D-Day atmosphere created by the Mess Committee. The Mess paid for most of the W.O.R.S. resources.
Volunteers with their experience and knowledge of WW2:
- Patrick Meulbrouck
- Dave Partridge
- Chris Trenfield
- Ray Parfitt
- James Shakles
- Alan Turnbull
Our Volunteers also have access to other period uniforms including American Civil War, Napoleonic and WW1.
"The Volunteers in their uniforms and weapons were really fun and knew their subjects"
GCN would like to thank the WOs & Sgts Mess Commitee for their donations of party materials and assistance with transport for our Trench Materials.
