DORCHESTER, ENGLAND - JUNE 23: A re-enactor dressed as a Second World War German soldier gets a cup of tea from a mobile Red Cross canteen as he takes part in the two-day Maiden Newton At War 1940s re-enactment weekend in Maiden Newton on June 23, 2012 near Dorchester, England. The quiet Dorset village of Newton Maiden was seen as a strategic hub during the Second World War and was heavily fortified against a threatened German invasion. It later saw hundreds of American servicemen quartered in the area before the D Day landings. To celebrate the village's wartime past, the biennial event, which started in 2008, has grown into one of the biggest re-enactments in the country and this year featured one of the largest convoys of Second World War vehicles seen in Dorset since D Day in 1944.
