We’ll Meet Again: John and Heather welcome visitors to Thorpe Camp in Tattershall Thorpe for their 1940s re-enactment weekend.
“Living history re-enactor groups from around the country will attend this annual event together with vintage military and civilian vehicles, but if you want to know more about forties clothing ask a re-enactor, they will be pleased to tell you about their time consuming hobby. Re-enactors take on the persona of an individual from the forties era, and create to the best of their ability, authenticity in uniform equipment and civilian dress, including accessories carried. The majority of re-enactors are asked to appear at veteran’s events, and have been seen on television, films and documentaries.” Full details
