As a child I had umpteen books on soldiers and uniforms, but I can remember being drawn to the illustrations with redcoats and tricornes. Then I saw “Barry Lyndon”…

The mid 18th C. is one of my favourite periods. I’m not much of a wargamer, but the uniforms and equipment fascinate me along with the general history. Something about the style of the uniforms of this time pleases me (although the Prussians came along and ruined the generous cut and things were never quite the same again!)
