If you opened your eyes to see a man in Second World War-era Red Cross kit leaning over you as you lay on the pavement, you be justifiably confused as a chameleon in a bag of skittles.
But luckily it all made sense in a matter of seconds for Pauline Freeman, who was visiting the 1940s festival in Sheringham on Saturday when she collapsed.

Mrs Freeman, in her 60s, said she wanted to thank the people in period costume who came to her aid after she passed out.
She said: "We were sitting just off the High Street and all of a sudden I began to feel a bit faint, and then the next thing I knew I was laying on the pavement. I was out for about 10 minutes. When I came to there was a man in costume leaning over me with a red cross on his arm. He said: 'Don't worry, I am a real first aider!'"
Mrs Freeman, from Market Harborough in Leicestershire, who was staying in Trimingham with husband Melvyn, quickly recovered.
