I went to "War in the Cotswolds" event on Sunday. It's an event where people who like to dress in 1940's style gather. This was on the Gloucestershire and Warwickshire Railway (GWR).
These guys were chatting and I managed to get a reasonable shot.

The only thing that would have made this image better, for me, would be a steam engine leading a train along the background track. That would completed the picture of the military police in period uniforms and the vintage vehicle we see on the right. I like the bits of red scattered through the image which serves to lead the viewer through the picture.

If only the devil could cast his net now! I had a few runs with these "gentlemen" and their compatriots in the Regimental police - the Rifle Brigade (Royal Green Jackets) branch in my case.
I don't think any nations re-enactors do it quite as well as the British.
Guy on the left looks a bit like Foggy from Last of the summer wine.

I do love these re-enactors - they definitely look the part and take the viewer right into the scene. Love their bright red tops - they are a classey looking group and one to be very proud of. They do a very important and necessary job - that's for sure.
