Living History!

Postby Timc on Fri 30 Jun 2017, 9:49 am

Popped down to the Severn Valley Railway last Sunday for a couple of hours to see what the 1940's Weekend Event was all about.

Thanks to the South Staffs Living History Group for providing an entertaining afternoon, although some of the "set pieces" were a little too realistic it has to be said!

The event is also happening this coming weekend too.

Great photo's, but have to say it worries me too how some re-enactors carry the German thing too far. As a re-enactor myself ( Luftwaffe Aircrew for 8 years ) I am very aware and careful how i portray what I do, as all to often the press like to call us all Nazi's. Don't get me wrong I've been taken prisoner many times, but draw the line at taking females prisoner ( even if they have pe-planed it, it can cause distress to on looking children and alienate the public ). Your photographs are fabulous and they depict a great event, I like the way you have captured the feel of the period.... :clap:

"Went the Day Well?".

Too realistic for you?
