HM these are getting better & better.

There's a picture of General Gough on the wall above me as I'm typing this & the white coat can still be seen (or at any rate you could the last time I was there) at the National Army Museum in Chelsea.

'Nonsense, they couldn't hit an elephant at this distance'

Fortunately for Gough this was more true with regard to the sikhs than to the cs sharpshooters. ;D.   
I thought is was a nice gesture to his own troops anyway.

@leblancII: To make it more readable than I could write it down, I recommend http://www.britishbattles.com/first-sikh-war/ferozeshah.htm from a www-site which has all battles of the first sikh war (and of course some others, too. :))  During this war there were apart from the military events on both sides hidden agendas and intrigues that you will like.

@all: thank you very much, more coming soon

I think I found better parts than the cs troopers to make the first khaki unit in history. They have now even 'indian' heads and hands.

very nice troops henry!  ;D
I left my love a letter in the hollar of a tree.
I told her she would find me in the U.S. Cavalry.
High, yo, down they go, there's no such word as can't.
We'll ride clean down to hell and back for Ulysses Simpson Grant.

hey Micheal...NICE NICE !!
i never knew what to do with those many yellow/red gardeners' straw hats....sparyed several black for navy tarred hats  ;D

sometimes i purposely use a different shade of blue cuffs(or neck-ties in your case) on a blue arm, just to bring out the color/contrast...maybe they will be more conspicuous to my aging eyes  :D

sudan 1883 (thanks) such a beautiful subject too....i shall not make them.......i shall not make them.......i shall not make them.......i shall not make them.......i shall not make them.......i shall not make them.......i shall not make them.......i shall not make them.......i shall not make them.......i shall not make them.......i shall not make them.......i shall not make them.......i shall not make them.......i shall not make them.......i shall not make them... ;) God help me!

I bought the Christmas "Three Kings" set just to get the camel.

I want to make a soldier of the German Camel Corps in SW Africa http://www.gwpda.org/photos/camel01.htm.

I really like soldiers on camels.  I want to follow him with british & Indian camel soldiers as well.
