The book is nice enough, and it explains about the different armour and arms used at different times.
However, with the knowledge you have, and the library you must have, I doubt...

Yes it is an interesting link Shayde. When I was in the army, a 'century' ago, I remember the C-rations, I dont remember any A or B-rations.
Without knowing it, I would think each Indian soldier, at...

Fernando, yes it is true that the preparations took months. Sometimes up to three months.

Fernando, you would be right about the wood, as they had a lot of it in India - but newly felled wood would be no good in this case - as it would not be dry wood, and that is what you would need for...

Fernando, thank you very much for the tip which is interesting, but after a second thought I think I will leave it as it is.
