Response to RAF reenactment for beginners ;)
OPS 39-45 put on some fantastic displays, kit talks, dispersal scenario, operational briefings and more recently have produced a fighter ops control room scenario that is second to none. Their level of authenticity is pretty bloody good. So if by middle of the road you are meaning that attention to detail and authenticity is not high on the list of priorities then there are probably other groups that may fit the bill better. If that is not the case and these things are important then this group is the one for you. There are certainly other groups that would fall into the middle of the road catagory, I saw one group at Biggin Hill who looked OK, some of the kit looked modern and out of context (Khaki before D-day ?)and apart from a bit of drill and hanging around at dispersal did not do much else.
That said there are, compared to army (US and airborne units)very few RAF reenactment units around in the UK, so you could say that anything is better than nothing.
