Field Artillery

"Quantity" as Stalin may or may not have once said "has a quality all of its own". I photographed this lot - which is by no means all that I own - mainly because I had the box out. They fit into the 'no military value' category on the basis that not many of them could ever get on the table at once. What I would say is that they do nicely capture the lack of uniformity that would probably have been seen in practice.

From that angle the chap with the bucket almost looks as if he has wandered in from an American Civil War battlefield.

When we can all go out again I am going to treat myself to a pair of trousers that colour.
