"German gear. This chap was worried that I might capture his British army issue socks, which might spoil the authentic look. It all looked pretty authentic to me! On the one hand these chaps enjoyed showing off their nice German clothes and kit but they also did not like having their faces photographed."

It's interesting how some people find meaning in their lives by shifting into a different period of history. The whole re-enactment movement seems to tap into this trend. However, the mind boggles about those who find meaning by re-enacting the Holocaust. I also attended Salute 2007, and I found this display of very bad taste.
