    Re the boots in the period photo. The answer lies on the forum:

    Thanks Adrian! I have never seen them before and now I want a pair!

    And sorry Barons for hijacking your thread.

    Thanks Ade! I was right - the boots are for non mounted and their issue in the TR era must have been short lived. I don't think I saw that thread previously. It seems there was a bit of experimentation with clothing and gear during the inter-war years. Thanks Tom for the input on the axe - I knew you would chime in. Found your photos on line but did not feel it was right to post them without permission. NH
