Truth in advertising!

I won one on ebay, admittedly where the vender had listed it improperly, thanks to the sharp eye of one of our participants here. It's a really interesting book, and I sure didn't pay $120 for it.

Looking at that drawing, I'm not sure if it's intended to depict WWI British troops, WWI US troops, or perhaps 1940 vintage American troops. Interesting depiction.

Mike, Larry,

I tend to agee with Larry, the 10 pocket are a strictly Canadian piece of gear. The nine pocket bandoleer on the horse was the same as the trooper's bandoleer. The practice of using it on the horse started in 1915. To the best of my knowledge it didn't happen in the Boer War. (never say never)

Does each bandoleer pocket carry one, or two, Enfield stripper clips?

That's a full 100 to 90 rounds, depending on the number of pockets.
