[...] Thomas is the leader of the French ‘Rangers’ who came to recreate some critical moments at Maisy. I’m super impressed by his team and the depth of equipment, knowledge and gear they brought along. Thomas went above and beyond to prep and prepare specific props (repainted helmets as <5>), etc.

Jean Paul Limagne, organiser (Atlantic Wall Memory)

(Translated from French)
We are very happy to have worked many times with the team. They offer a wide range of activities and they have high-quality standards.


The team is reactive, reliable and dynamic. The word “reenactment” takes its true significance. The public is delighted with their presentations and very excited to become reenactment “actors”.

 

May the Recollectif live long !

I had the chance to work with Thomas on one of my projects. His professionalism is astonishing. Indeed, he doesn’t only come with his whole WW2 accessories collections but also with his historical and military knowledge. I really enjoyed working with him because he succeeded to make the extras comfortable with their uniforms, their accessories and their behavior. That’s what makes him so particular. I can’t wait to work with him again on Second World War projects. Thomas doesn’t play, he personifies !

François-Xavier Varlet, organisator (Faire Revivre l'Histoire)

(Translated from French)

We worked with Recollectif for two reenactment events about the liberation of the North of France. The quality of their uniforms and equipment is impressive. Their knowledge about the Second World War is striking. We are very satisfied with their performances and hope to work with them next year again. Once again, thanks to Thomas and his team.
