About us

With a keen interest in history we started Get Dressed For Battle in 2003 with the aim to supply good quality and affordable historical items to the world of Re-enactment and Larp.

In the early days we worked very closely with a top quality armourer  who's knowledge and input helped us to build our brand by him showing our manufacturers how to make historical armour and goods correctly and at a price that our customers would find reasonable.

We now supply customers all over the world and also numerous film companies, theatres, schools and tv productions.

 10 years or more we parted company with our original manufacturer and  joined our European partners which through their hard work has now enabled us to  offer a lot more quality products at the same affordable price.
