I know of one or two people who have done it as a bit-part, so to speak, but not someone who has done it as a devoted presentation. What sort of finishing touches are you after?

Paper work, note book, etc. Did they carry handcuffs?
All the little things that complete the representation.

Interesting question - I cannot answer with certainty, but believe the answer is either probably yes, or that they might have been issued as occasion demanded. Civvy pattern cuffs with military marks and WW1/WW2 dates are not uncommon, and Field Punishment No.1 actually allows either a prescribed robe binding or a set of hand cuff to be used to restrain the prisoner.
