37195RE: 1812 HMS Detroit
- Aug 18, 2008Bob,
I got the idea from your original posting. It seemed like a good
question. I guess we will have to try it at Fanshawe this year.

Interesting. I posted the very same question on the 1812 Royal
Navy site recently. Perhaps you replied there, I can't remember.
It was in reference to an Osprey image showing a Royal Navy sailor
ready to go ashore on a landing party and he was wearing a blanket
I commented that it seemed logical to me that if they were going
to stay overnight or possibly for an extended time ashore that a
blanket (roll) is plausible.
Of course, it would help if Osprey sited references or sources
for their renderings in their books!
