The Telegraph just published an interesting pictorial entitled Inventories of war: Soldiers’ kit from 1066 to 2014. It shows off individual weaponry and LBE from the Battle of Hastings to the most recent fighting in Helmand Province. It’s a great essay, whether you’re interested in the Soldier’s Load or specific conflicts like the War of the Roses, the Napoleon campaigns or any other period. Samples include individual loadouts from the Siege of Jerusalem, Agincourt, Bosworth, Tilbury, Naseby, Malplaquet, Waterloo, Alma, Arnhem, the Falklands and Helmand Province.
