Beautiful Uniforms 

After a morning at the V&A some of us were off to the National Army Museum for a look at uniforms through history. How decorative the British were when it comes to military splendor.

Heaps and heaps of metal embroidery and silk embroidered pennants and banners. Also a charming bead and cross stitch sampler stitched in memory of a beloved brother killed in battle.

The beads on the sampler were much smaller than commercially available today and were used liberally throughout.
