Forces 80
Umbrella organisation for Cold War Living History
C.20 Forums
Recently resurrected from vandalism.
"A forum for 20th Century Living History re-enactors who have a sense of humour."
Obvously, that was put sorely to the test when it was vandalised, but it's back up again, and long may it remain!
The Royal Military Police
Officical MoD RMP website
RMP Museum details and website
Note that as at 15th January 2007 RHQ, the RMP Museum and shop were relocated to the Defence College of Policing and Guarding, Southwick Park. It is highly advisable to phone them BEFORE turning up for a visit, as like most Museums, they don't have a surfeit of staff, and are located within the confines of the camp: You therefore need to have had the guard room notified to expect you, or you might be told that you cannot visit!
Run by a former RMP soldier, the site is an interesting source of material. Well worth a visit.
Specific search terms for the Royal Military Police.

Generic Living History and associated topics...

Ex-Military Land Rover Association
EMLRA are a Military Vehicle association with the main aims of either preserving and/or renovating ex-military Land Rovers. If you're considering purchasing one, they are a wealth of good knowledge, and their facilities extend to offering members a full and as complete as possible service history background search on your Land Rover... Well worth the membership fee, folks, so if you've a landie, join up - basic membership (forum only) is free, and full membership is practically a pittance in modern money

Tim's Tags
Accurate and genuine format British military identification discs. HIGHLY recommended for modern re-enactors and genuine British military who need another set of discs
WW2 Re-enacting forums
Covering most aspects of the Second World War, there are also sections of the forums devoted to post war areas of interest.
Very helpful crowd on there, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Allied Forums dot net
Concentrating primarily again on the Second World War, they do have a very small dedicated section on post war matters, albeit not that busy for the Cold War period.
Again, a very freindly crowd on there, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
