I always do the " looked shocked then try to unbutton by coat and look for the wound and then fall over dead"

Or charge right before they shoot and then die


"Ow I have been shot and about to be slain and i must say that I've lost my arm sir."  -falls-

"Permission die horribly sir?"
"Granted"
"Thank you very much, s-ARGH"

"Permission to die  sir."
"Negative private" " the battle just started"!

Humans are extremely complicated creatures. Death uncomplicates them to a frightening degree...

Which was quite some money in those days.

Anyway, a true man doesn't need a bulletproof vest. Certainly not when facing French lancers.

I love that thing. Pretty much sums up the essence of napoleonic warfare.

Suns been shining past couple weeks Zac, as a result Britons have been hiding from the new orange orb in the sky and the residents of Somerset have submerged back underwater to their dwellings.

Indeed. It is a good example of the incredibly violent, impersonal and long range death that was typical of the era.

Fatigue coat,



Genius, though, he wasaskig about a sack coat, (see picture)

It's the same thing. FFS if you don't know what you're talking about don't call someone else a derp.

Jeez I have never seen a sack coat go that high.

Good museum grade stuff goes that high Milly. Wambaugh, Sekela, Daley (doesn't do much anymore), Charlie Childs etc.

Just wait until you see the good Richmond depot jackets  :D.

Wow thats crazy Mack.
 was the first to die of the entire weekend. The battalion was lined up and some CS skirmishers were shooting at us from long range. Nobody was going down because we all had loaded rifles. I decided it was getting a bit silly so I handed my rifle to the guy next to me and when they fired a did a complete faceplant in front of the battalion.

Got some more stuff to write. All in all shit was cray and swag
Of course, I also think lines should be able to move in double rank without having emotional breakdowns.
