|Wonderful colour plates by Richard Scollins|
I often go trawling through old magazines on the shelves (remember those - made of paper?) and love the wonderful uniform and battle/campaign information you can still glean out of so many of them. To my mind they are still gold.
I have, to the best of technologically challenged ability, put up a wonderful article by the very famous Ian Knight, colonial expert without peer, which makes for some fascinating reading. This comes from the July 1985 issue.
|Even the old fashioned typesetters could occasionally make a mistake in their spelling!!|
|Wonderful black and white illustrations- wish they were in colour|
I am unaware of the copyright requirements on reproducing this article from a now defunct publication however I acknowledge that all copyright and ownership of these plates and the article itself is the domain of Richard Scollins and Ian Knight.
If you wish to reproduce or copy them on a blog or what-not if you would also acknowledge their excellent work it would be greatly appreciated by everyone.
