British Army Luggage Saddle

Hi all, This is not the most likely site to find a British Army Luggage Saddle, but I am casting my net as far as possible. For any who are not familiar with what I am seeking, it is a small saddle for British Army H.S.D. (Harness, Shaft, Draught) of 19th/20th Century. Any condition, provided the ir...

Thanks Merlon, I had tried Google, but being an old duffer who speaks a more archaic language I have not googled the correct word to find anything.

Great Seal Richard I

Colin and Ranulf, I am not a devotee of pure fantasy, but one can never prove a negative. I also know of no other evidence of visors of this period, probably because they had not been perfected, but there has to be a first, and if there was a new design on the market, Richard I would have been the c...

Perhaps the Angel's modern hairstyle is a link with the present Cat, an indication that we have learned little.

Thank you Brother Ranulf, that is much clearer than the images of the seal which I have. Thank you also for your comments. I am familiar with the developement of armour around this period, 1200 to 1350, the transition from mail to plate is my preferred period. I know that there is no evidence of vis...

Hi Brother Ranulf,

I have PM'd you, but wonder if it has got through. I have tried to PM others on this net, but failed. Something I am doing wrong or Gremlins in my PC? To be fair, I am an ageing technocretin.

My e-mail is JTRemountDepot@aol.com

Great Seal Richard I

Hi all, Does anyone have, or know where I can find a good hi definition photo of the Great Seal of Richard I ? There are several representations online, but all very grainy when blown up. I have for some time wished to try to re-create the rather perculiar helm on the seal. It may be pure artist lic...
