During 1940's Event in Market Bosworth UK (basically WW2 reenactors)


Just a lovely couple in period costume.

unfortunately the only ww2 relics that were near the tracks was this german motorcycle. I cloned out the swastika. You can't have a reenactment without the Nz's , but the Nz symbols, and memorabilia was quite unsettling.

They don't have a turn table so they have to switch tracks and reverse the train. Hes grabbing the lantern, just before uncoupling the engine.

Good selection of images of a very unusual looking engine!

Really nice set.

I'm surprised they can still use those tracks.....at least the way they look in picture one and three. Those babies are really warped out of shape. Need to get the gandy dancers in there. ;-)a

Yeah, maybe it's because it doesnt have a coal tender? It's a short branch line locomotive, built in 1928.

Shackerstone station to Shenton station is just over 5 miles. Funny how some loco's have several tonne tenders, and this one can get by with that little box in the back.

If they are historically correct, why shy away from **** symbols? We won't benefit from our history if we only try to blank it out. What happened in Europe in the 1930s and 40s was real. Forgetting it is the last thing we should try to do.


David.
Comment and (constructive) criticism always welcome.

Truer words were never spoken. Unfortunately, that's the way the world has become. Block it out, don't teach it in schools.......it never happened.

It's very disappointing that you cloned out the swastikas.

Your choice, but their display in a historical context doesn't glorify the evils of that group. It just seems odd to see that stuff in the shot with a UK background (English signs). Like an alternate history where they did invade.
The pictures are otherwise nice.

Or a symbol of India, who used the symbol long before WW2, and still use it. https://timesofindia.i​ndiatimes.com …ns/articleshow/​994390.cms (external link)

I think that's the one I was originally thinking of but couldn't remember where it came from. The downstroke on the top left was on the right side: https://www.quora.com …nd-the-****-swastika-sign (external link)
