Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) Peter Austridge (L), portraying a Corporal in the 4th Battalion Royal Fusilier Territorial Army, recreates the camp life of a First World War soldier with other re-enactors Steve Neville (2nd L) Andrew Morgan (2nd R) and Phil Curtis (R) at the Colchester Military Tournament in Colchester, eastern England July 6, 2014. Peter became interested in WWI re-enactment because of three sets of medals handed down to him from his great uncles. He is fascinated by the details of the soldiers everyday life. Unlike earlier wars he says there are researchable facts about what people wore and ate. For him the enjoyment of re-enacting is bringing the bit of history he's learned to life for others. United by a fascination with military history and a fondness for dressing up, groups such as the Rifles Living History Society and the Queen's Own Royal West Kent Regiment Living History Group get together to re-create aspects of life during the First World War. Reuters photographer Luke MacGregor photographed members of the groups, both as they took part in living history events and at their day jobs. Picture taken July 6, 2014.
