    Jonathan Ball It's a way of life.

    Easy one for me to answer. I've always loved seeing the Officers who served in India during the mutiny in 1857. East very much meeting West.

    Although the uniform isn't ostentatious this Civil War officer demonstrates a fine sense of style. The flutter in his left eye would indicate he was forced to hold a pose for a long exposure. Avoiding a duel with this guy would probably be a good idea ... :lol:

    I like the old style uniforms. No camo but nice to see.

    Can't find my own pics I took of these Japanese Archers when they came to Leeds, so I knicked a pic off Flickr, courtesy of: Einharch's photostream
    Even the horse gets in on the act!

    Ulrich, but that was considered 'camo' at the time, same as with the Brit Rifle regiments, the 60th and 95th. Nice to see old Knötel, thanks for the link :)

    Still on the subject a well known but worthy piece: Scotland Forever!

    You´re right, compared to the shiny armor of a Drgaoon or the colourful uniforms of the Infantery regiments it was a camo. Sadly your Link won´t work.

    It does not work for me either.

    Never mind Ulrich has posted enough wonderful uniforms from the German states, Napoleonic era to keep me happy for a long time. Yum Yum.

    For sheer elegance you cannot beat French (and Allies) Napoleonic uniforms and Edwardian British uniforms.

    Great that you like it! Yes the uniforms of the French and British were really fantastic at this time.

    My apologies, try copying the URL below and pasting as the address, instead of clicking on it. In the meantime I'll look up another instance of the same thing :blush: In Firefox, "Copy Link Location"

    Cut 'n' paste works fine, and that is a magnificent painting, have seen the original many times in the art gallery just a short walk from my home.
    EDIT: well it did work, let me try another link:
