Re: Breeches Pattern

You may want to search through the old threads as there was somebody, a long time ago, looking into something similar. It might be long enough ago that the search features doesn't work perfectly for the thread however.

Black Jack, the Caparisoned horse and Caissons

Is the author is this piece correct in saying that Black Jack was the last horse to wear an Army brand?
Interesting question, to which I don't know the answer.

If the article is correct, he had a Preston brand, which would make sense.

Re: Great War U.S. Officer Uniforms

Once again I present the unusual, and this is very different. In general, officers were given a good bit of leeway when buying commercially made uniforms as long as they meet a rather broad criteria. So stated, I present Capt. J.M. Morrell. The hat is one I've seem in pictures of engineers and surv...

1st Foreign Parachute Heavy Mortar Company ,Indochina War, with some equine help.

1st Foreign Parachute Heavy Mortar Company during the Indochina War. I don't know what the mortars are, but they apparently were getting some local equine help towing them.

Kurt,

I've been so tied up at work I forgot to reply. I will soon.

I wish the BBC would just make these available to us colonials. Taking the results of the Revolution out on us this way just isn't fair.

I'm often struck my the extent to which these posts not only do not resemble the popular depiction of them, but rather look like Victorian villages in the wilderness.

The US Navy SEALS use them, but then so do various British special forces. My guess is that this is a Navy SEAL. Note the sadd...
