Historical Thursday - Gear Through the Ages

There is a fascinating pictorial on showing soldiering gear through many periods from 1066 A.D. to 1916.  See more here.

It's easy to see that a soldier's load was never light.  None of this shows what sort of other items might have been pressed upon them in the interest of the unit, as well as food and water (and other beverages) when beasts of burden were not able to be used.
