Cheers Johan. That saves me having to ask the 'what do you get out of re-enacting' question I was working on.

The more I think about it, the more I agree with you that re-enacting offers valuable contributions to understanding the soldier's life. For instance when I go hiking I know how heavy my standard hiking pack is and how much it impedes my progress, but that is no way comparable to carrying a period bag filled with period equipment wearing brogans. And that's without considering the additional strains of gun, ammo, fear, and starvation rations.
