    ‘Tis said his form is tiny, yet
    All human ills he can subdue,
    Or with a bauble or medal
    Can win mans heart for you;
    And many a blessing know to stew
    To make a megloamaniac bright;
    Give honour to the dainty Corse,
    The Pixie is a little shite.

                        • Awesome mate, just awesome. They have to be the best plates I have ever come across, I would love to see them in a book bound In good hard cardboard with regimental descriptions.

                          I did not know that some dragoon regiments wore busbies, or are they dated earlier than the Grecian style helmets? Also, why do a lot of the cavalry regiments have the grenadier symbol on their equipment?

                          Another, question (sorry guys!) how exactly do you pronounce carabinier? Is it simply "cara bin eair" or "cara bin ier" or something else entirely. Thanks.
