As opposed to dressing up in a large baggy red suit, obscuring your face with a beard and getting young children to sit on your lap while chanting yo-ho-ho? Or, drunkenly sh@gging the secretary on the photocopier at the office Xmas party? Merely dressing up as a member of the Royal Family seems a bit mild really.
I know these military re-enactment societies are mostly harmless, and in some cases provide a good service at summer fetes, etc.
But yes, I find something very disturbing about a bunch of people going to that much trouble to dress up as Waffen SS, give Nazi salutes and obtain all that military equipment - in England.
In my honest opinion, they do no harm and in a way the German army had a fascinating array of uniforms and decorations. If I had the money, I would gladly collect German 3rd Reich militaria but I don't.
I'd rather see them doing this than child pornography!!!
