'My attempt at a "generic" infantryman of the Mexican Army during the Mexican-American War, 1846-48. I have a "levita" style tunic and cotton summer trousers. This year I added a new shako plate, and made linen gaiters to wear with my low cut shoes. However, as the gaiters are worn under the trousers they are barely visible. I still have improvements to make, but I like how it is coming along.'
Great work Tony
