That's all that got taken I'm afraid (with the exception of one photo, which was basically a trail of smoke across the sky, and half an airplane going rapidly out of shot, which I didn't bother to put up). My personal favourite is the first, with the young lad in front of the Vickers.

Anyhow, a member/s of "The Troop" already does WW1 cavalry - perhaps contacting them and seeing where they got their kit from might be a good idea?
