Corin Watts participates in a rifle drill while recreating life as a World War I soldier at the Colchester Military Tournament in Colchester, England, July 6, 2014. Watts portrays a Lance Corporal in the Kings Royal Rifle Corps, part of the Rifles Living History Society.
Watts says that he became interested in World War I when, as a child, he would pass the statue of "The Driver" on the Royal Artillery Monument by Charles Sargeant Jagger. Of his fellow re-enactors he says "I like the people, its an odd community re-enactment, they are the most bizarre but at the same time most grounded and down to earth people you'd ever meet."
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 recreate 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.
