For others it’s a chance to be a kid again, to be a soldier, to be John Wayne storming the beaches or Robert DeNero in The Deer Hunter. For a few there appears to be a more sinister reason why they dress up in their uniforms of some of the most reviled military organisations the world as seen, even if they deny it.
