Re: Napoleonic cavalry - suppliers?

I can also help with any of your leatherwork and accouterment needs.
I'm currently working with some Dragoon and Hussar Regiments on various leatherwork projects.

Feel free to drop me a line if you require any further details.

Re: secure storing for guns

Something else i forgot to add about the ring and cap method. Now, please bear in mind this is only what i've been told by my local FAO. The ring and cap arrangement was acceptable for storage in the loft. It would not have been acceptable for 'on view' wall mount or the like. Had I not had the faci...

Re: secure storing for guns

If it helps, Staffordshire are the same as mentioned above. They allow up to 2 muskets weapons to be stored using the ring and cap method. Any more and a cabinet is the only acceptable way forward. If you're only ever looking at 1-2 weapons then the ring and clamp (Secure space permitting) is defini...

Re: Napoleonic Light infantry regt/coy officers full/court d

Isn't full dress for LI, basically a dolman?
Just a bit of a posh job!!

The 60th one i'm lookin gat having made is 'top of bum' length.
It has leg flashes that continue the facings so long would be wrong.

I'm pretty sure all LI are of a similar style for Brits?

Re: Give it a poke... but not to hard please

I think that's the same in all other browsers too.

The link for footwear is in small print at the bottom of the page.
Both ie8 and Chrome show the same layout as Zoot describes.

Online templates are OK but it's quite easy to miss stuff as you don't have complete control.
