WELCOME FROM Y TROOP
Welcome to the web pages of Y Troop, Royal Marine Commando, A WW2 reenactment group ​​​​
and part of the Northern World War 2 Association.

We are a small group of friends and WW2 enthusiast who portray Y Troop, 47 Royal Marine Commandos  and Combined Operations covering the period of 1943-1945 who took part in many daring raids into occupied Europe as well as the major landings in Normandy on D Day.

Our members come from all walks of life, history enthusiasts, friends and ex forces who have come together to keep the memory of those who served with the commandos alive, and educate the public on the period, its weapons , vehicles and life during the dark days of world war two.​ We achieve this through living history events, educational visits and mock battles which often involve live weapons and vehicles from the period. But we also pride ourselves on getting our portrayal as accurate as possible and work with other units within the NWW2A to bring this part in our history to life. 

Our members are predominantly based in the North of England, hailing from Yorkshire, Lancashire and Merseyside.
​And we are always on the look out for those who would like to join us, families more than welcome.
