  1. What is it for you that appeals so much about classic military uniforms and such? I’ve always liked them, maybe not quite as much as you, because they’re so dapper. I’d love for you to do a post on your own personal history or journey of why you like the uniforms and engagements of a bygone era.

    1. You know, I’m really not sure why I’ve always enjoyed these classic uniforms and I guess the blog kind of helps me explore that. I’ve always enjoyed that era of military history since I was very small. I remember at a new school we could write at length about any topic we wanted to and I chose the battle of Waterloo. I clearly remember being very surprised that no one in the entire class seemed to choose a similar subject! Perhaps I shouldn’t have been that shocked…

      I’ll have a think about that post idea! 🙂

      1. Well I for one really enjoy your posts. When I was a kid, as young as 8 or 9, I’d go to the library and get as many books as I could on the Napoleonic war. I often didn’t read them but would be fascinated by the pictures of oil paintings depicting huge romantic battles. The uniforms were confusing but amazing to my eyes.
