Festival Of The Forties Peterborough


I was recently asked to go and photograph the Festival of The Forties event qwhich takes place near Ramsey in Peterborough. In commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the D Day Landings, Peterborough’s Festival Of The Forties was host to some of the UK’s top living history groups from the period. Featuring War Walks in the Military Display area the festival allowed you to step back in time and relive the sights and sounds of a typical frontline encampment from the 1940’s.

These photographs are from the battle re-enactments in the battlefield arena and have been styled in black and white with a touch of grain in order to match the style of photographs that were typical from the era.
