Torchlight where also asked to provide the services of the organisations Armourer, Who provided Realistic Imitation Firearms, and a Blank Firing capability. This was to assist in creating a realistic ambush situation, in addition to providing props to actors portraying local militia.
Torchlight Heritage also provided a senior member of its team to assist in the coordination of over 300 role players across multiple sites, across an entire county.
