Why no one in the world of battle re-enactment wants to be a 'Walt' or a 'Farb' – Telegraph Blogs "In the relatively free society in which we live, anyone who can afford it can buy the uniform, equipment and insignia of a special forces soldier and top it off with a reproduction, deactivated or even airsoft (these fire plastic pellets) assault rifle. Elite units simply attract the most attention. If you havent got to train for it, pass a test to get into it and yet still be able to pass yourself off as better than everyone else, then its going to be popular. According to ARRSE (look it up), this is the highest level of re-enactment walting. Getting yourself taken seriously by other re-enactors is another matter." Also several references to serving personnel involved in the hobby.
