    "Fun day out for all the Family".

    Not the comment you want, but between 50,000,000 and 80,000,000 people died.

    "1.Tanks in action
    2.Living History Displays
    3.Battle reenactments"

    1. So we'll see huge explotions as the tank shells hit. We'll smell burning bodies as a tank is hit.

    2. We'll see people stood outside what was left of their homes and family after a bomb hits.

    3. We'll see bodies blown to pieces. Men screaming in agony praying for death.

    I don't think war was ever FUN. Ask all the ex-military folk in here, "Did you have FUN ? Did you enjoy seeing your mates die ?"

    Sorry for the negative post but it seems so wrong to call war fun.

    As a reenactor and participant in Living History displays, WW2 related, all be it Home Front based now...........I'd certainly like to say that in the 13 years I've been involved in the hobby, I've probably only met less than a handful of re-enacting folk who thought war was fun.

    Amoungst our number, there are both ex and still serving service personel, who, along with the majority of non served folk, portray/depict their chosen 'combatant' with accuracy and dedication,.......to get the details etc, right.

    In show situations, 'we' are judged, at times by veterans who 'did it for real',............again something most of us don't forget; (at the end of a weekend, we can get out of soggy khaki, and shower etc,). In very mant cases friendships are formed with these veterans, who, at times allow us the privilidge of hearing rememberances that even their wives/children/carers have not heard.


    Yes, tanks in action..............firing blank 'bangs'
    yes, living history displays,.........you'd be amazed by the number of folk who
    don't know the wartime ration a household was entitled too
    yes, battle reenactments,.........any gunfire are 'blanks', yes participants are
    seen to 'die',........in itself a good teaching tool, to (try) teach guns aren't
    toys.

    History, isn't something that can be air-brushed away, (however much the education system has tried to do, recently) and its not nice and certainly not pretty..........BUT, wars do happen, and yes, unfortunately people die.
    Reenactors/living history participants feel this and are very careful, to NOT give credence to the glorification of death.

    That's not what nags me and for you it must be a wonderful meaningful experience, it's the message mainly to the kids. Worst of all right now they tuned into war as fun, I know my grandson is, and I know they are not going to leave one of these highly entertaining events with any sense of "war isn't fun". They should leave crying, frightened because sure as hell that is what it must be like for real, mercifully I have no first hand experience of this.

    I have a relative who organised the IWM Manchester WW1 exhibition, I left that with the feeling that it showed some guns, it showed some shelled houses but it did not convey the real horror at all.

    So as I said, I apologise for being negative, I just think it's time to end wars by any means possible.

    And as an after thought, look at the Muslim kids, itching to go to the glory of war. Same as we brainwashed our kids 100 years ago.
