VIDEO REPORT: Keeping war history alive in Kent

One of Europe's biggest military festivals is underway in Kent. For the first time the event, now called the War and Peace Revival, is being held at, what was, Folkestone Racecourse.

The huge site means the organisers have been able to recreate a "home front village", giving thousands of children a chance to see what life was like in the 1930s and 40s.

Derek Johnson was there among the military enthusiasts and speaks to Wayne Ladd, Battle of Britain re-enactor, Adam Francis, Afghanistan veteran, and Jude Knight, Home Front re-enactor.
