Before, or after you look at the photo?

A succinct physiognomical record of a (now) absurd event (barring about a dozen I saw in the pics).

Not having gone to this event before , I decided -somewhat against my better judgement - to attend on the Sunday in my usual accurate civvy garb, (but really in order to re-establish contact with a friend in the Home-Guard platoon who's phone-number I'd lost). I anticipated buffoonery, but wasn't quite prepared for the magnitude of it. It surpassed my expectations.

I will NEVER go to it again. It's an utter travesty.

I think that also sums it all up quite succinctly..

As I'm sure has been said many time shere, these events have now been eviscerated of any raison d'etre except one of leisure triviality. The bandwagoners are so desperate to have 'a party' at any costs - where (unlike day to day reality) everyone is suddenly nice to each other for a few hours ' and they can be rid of the modern dystopia that beset their daily existence in blighted Blighty. Highjacking an uncontrolled Home front event is the best, cheapest and easiest way to do it. Just come along with your false moustache and pill-box hat and off we go on the helter-skelter.

Ironically enough, I think these events are far more revealing about contemporary Britain rather than Wartime Britain. In that sense they are truly accurate.

Ever seen pictures of a 'patriotic' or 'historical' pageant from the first half of the Twentieth Century? They're exactly the same. It's reenactors who are the johnny-come-latelys.

Interesting point.

There are much more ancient precedents o the modern-day enthusiasm for the phenomenon. I think the Roman Naumachiae must have had some 'FARBY' elements in re-producing the Carthagenic Naval warrior Imagery (unless of course they had many captured items of battle-dress and armoury), and Pliny mentions that the fighting was often to the death, so you can't get more realistic then that in combat terms I should think!

Then then are the Tilts and Jousts of the 16th C.. although that might have straddled the line between creative anachronism and fantasy re-creation of former glories such as Crecy and the like.

I actually think that as 'fancy dress' the Haworth crowds are even poor in this respect, showing little imagination on the whole. If you look at the photographic relics of some of the noted fancy-dress balls - for example, the famous 'Historical Portraits come to Life ' ball given in 1897 C in London at Devonshire House - they were astonishingly good in their sheer artistry.
