The Things They Carried

The Telegraph recently posted some photographs by Thom Atkinson that display the inventories of British soldiers throughout the past hundreds of years. As someone who finds it grueling walking around with my laptop in my backpack, I find it remarkable to see the literal physical burden that soldiers carry into war.

I also find myself constantly admiring the uniforms and garments these soldiers wear. If you took away the weaponry, you could easily think that you were looking at a look book for Mister Freedom or RRL. I guess it goes to show you how much of men’s fashion is inspired by the military.

Photo from the 1936 movie, “Charge of the Light Brigade” with Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland.  Randomly saw it on TV last weekend and was loving it until reading online that in the cavalry battle sequences they used trip wires to make the horses fall, killing dozens throughout the course of filming (not to mention resulting in many rider injuries as well).  Perhaps one positive outcome was that this lead to Hollywood adopting standards for the treatment of horses in filming.
