Napoleonic Headware

Post by Rob Elliott »

Can anyone recommend a decent UK supplier of a Napoleonic period Royal Marine Officers Hat or Infantry officers Shako?

Are there any UK groups out there who portray the Royal Marines?

Cheers

RM Officer's hat on ebay now Item number: 290300224328

Some of my lot like Toad's Shakos. I'm not sure myself but check them out http://sites.google.com/site/toadshakos/

John Anastasio can probably sort you out http://napoleonic-uniforms.co.uk/Headwear.html

Good luck.

Oh. that's nice.

Why don't you just parade tarleton's under my nose when I can't afford one.
