Inventories of War - 1066-2014

A really very nice image gallery from the Telegraph, covering soldiers' kit from the Battle of Hastings through to the present day, touching on Agincourt, the War of the Roses, the ECW...

Very much worth a look. It's amusing how the essential purpose of individual bits of kit don't change, but how that's achieved does. All except for the spoon :D

  1. Interesting: especially the modern-day kit. The entertaining value of the series is; 'Hunt the Spoon'!
