Dutch Redcoats?

Postby Mark P. » Mon Jul 09, 2007 9:17 pm

I picked up this link from al in the 36th.
It looks like a C18th Dutch drill.
Interesting but don't know what it actually says mind you.

Looks like the knob on Playmobil muskets so the soldiers can shoot with them :D


Young men have often been ruined through owning horses, or through backing them, but never through riding them: unless of course they break their necks, which, taken at a gallop, is a very good death to die

While trying to find out stuff on the WIC for Fox, those very nice people in Holand gave me this link...

I'd point out that it is in fact the shoulder strap for his musket being held tight so it's flush to the gun

why is another question

Because it's easier to operate a pump action with the strap out of the way. Obvious really. :roll:
