Infantry gear through the ages




Interesting slide show presentation from the UK Telegraph. Go see the whole thing here:

It shows all the stuff soldiers carried, in thirteen examples from the year 1066 through 2014.



Battle of Agincourt, 1415. Longbow, short sword and rondel dagger

WWI, 1916. Notice the mace, at left

Present day, quite a burden
