Re: Loads more new Russians... and some Swedes

I seem to recall English/British armies used the same "charge bayonet" drill, certainly during the '45. Contemporary pictures in Morier (sp) show this. Didn't Duffy say it was a direct pose from the push pike drill movement transposed to a musket and bayonet?

The Tarleton was last worn in battle in 1866 as far as I can tell.

A 1926 interpretation, and Clarence has done the flags. Fine chap that he is.

Re: 1st Foot Guards

Might it be the effect of yellow and red overall to a non military observer?

Re: Who Do You Think You Are?

I have Huguenot ancestors from Ireland, the "Champley" bit of my name, but he probably trailed a pike in the ranks than did anything glamorous..
