Fellas, relax it was a joke about the Highlanders.
Phew, that's a relief, thanks James!!:wink:
I do like your idea of more Austrians (and other nations) in greatcoats though. In fact, for those Napoleonic campaigns from c. 1809 onwards, Austrian line infantry, Russian line infantry, Bavarians, French of course etc, all advancing and/or firing line, and in greatcoats. All very useful.
I thought it was the Geordies that never wore a jacket, spent a drunken weekend in Newcastle where it was snowing and the ladies were looking fine in little black dresses and little else.
We Scots are a hardy bunch as we can get 4 seasons in one day (snow blizzards in June), where I stay.
