Images of Sebastopol 1855


This is an excellent page of watercolours of troops by an anonymous hand of the Malakoff. Tartars, Highlanders, Zouaves they are are all there in glorious colour.

Lots of detail for anyone interested in what the soldiers in the trenches actually looked like. This shows the coat, the Criméenne which is in the photo below.
