Bandoliers for musketeers

Post by Nigel »

On another forum the authenticity of these have been challenged

Thoufghts
There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

Tricly one to argue... since there's surviving examples of wood and tin, and leather covering for both. There is, I believe, some references to how they were made in the sens of advice on things to check when buying. NMA colours are pretty well covered. Style is pretty much covered by surviving ones.

Which Forum. This I have to read...;-)

If I ever take up 1620's German reenactment I'll know exactly where to get my helmet.......

But if you want bandoliers of some serious lushness Try here http://www.engerisser.de/Bewaffnung/wea ... olier.html If I remember rightly they were about 120 euros when I last enquired....4 years ago....

Quite easy to find the thread on Google. Several sweeping statements by the rival.

Having examined bandolier boxes in London, Graz, Stockholm and Vienna; I always found them to be remarkably consistent in size. There is a degree of variation in the shape and cross section that can be attributed to the wood warping as it dried, and of course the turner.

Would have to say my bandolier from the source under discussion has boxes of more than one profile on them, which sort of blows one claim right out of the water.

Not aware of any particular Dendrological study on the woods used. Bottles could be made from the waste wood produced in many other processes, so no reason to exclude Ash.

Would interested in seeing the rivals research material as their products seem resemble Continental rather than English boxes

Since the link to the German bandolier site produced such nice pictures, would you care to post a link to the helmets mentioned above?

Quite a lot of money :-)

There's a Yank company called the Rifle Shoppe that do kits of various things. Including a pair of Scots steel Dags.... :D
