THE WOLSELEY HELMET IN PICTURES: FROM OMDURMAN TO EL ALAMEIN

By Stuart Bates and Peter Suciu

(Subject: Uniforms, Dress & Insignia - General) The British Wolseley helmet was introduced when the empire was essentially at its zenith, and while the Wolseley has a moniker that evokes an eminent Victorian general, it is in fact a helmet more accurately associated with the First and Second World Wars. The Wolseley pattern helmet was worn by the guardians of the empire, from the Battle of Omdurman to the Gallipoli campaign to the Battle of El Alamein.

OSPREY WARRIOR 54: CONFEDERATE CAVALRYMAN 1861-65

By Philip Katcher and (Illustrator) Gerry Embleton

(Subject: Uniforms, Dress & Insignia - General) The southerner of the mid-19th century had been bred to ride horses and had long been used to handling firearms, through hunting for pleasure, food or simply for sport. The combination of these factors promised that when the southern states began to secede in December 1860, the cavalry would be a major combat arm. This title looks at how the men of the Confederate cavalry were recruited, trained, lived and fought. Routine and campaign life are covered, as well as the weapons and equipment. Key encounters such as the 1863 clash at Brandy Station are also covered. (Published: 2002) (Publisher: Osprey) (ISBN: 1841763810) (Pagination: 64pp ills) (Condition: new in card covers) UL-XXXXXX
