Meet The Unknown Soldier
This guy was in the re-enactment of the battle for Arnheim, amongst the woods at the War And Peace show. He was surreptitiously using his mobile to send a text from his trench during a lull in the “fighting”, and looked a little sheepish when we spotted him – it wasn’t exactly regulation kit for 1944! He explained that he was sending a message to his daughter who was about to set off on a sailing trip across the Channel. He was rather sorry that he couldn’t be there to wave her off. I realised some time later that I completely forgot to ask his name, so he will have to go down as The Unknown Soldier.
