I feel that I have done these Hibernian heroes an injustice, and that I will have to return to black with washes for the next batch of Irish lads. Odd how the nationalists of Scotland, Ireland and Wales have forgotten how so many of their countrymen formed the cutting edge of the British Empire - particularly the Scots and the Irish. Brave lads all - and feared.
My last post featured some Starlux legionnaires in their famous white kepis. I meant to link to a marvellous blog that is well worth a visit - Mon Legionnaire: the classic French Foreign Legion in Wargaming, Literature, Pictures and History. I'll also add it to my favourites list below. It's top banana site!
