Pedantic little brother here. Wasn't the Crimean war and Peninsular War about 50 years apart? Sharpe fought wholly (as a commissioned officer) in the Peninsular War.Great books - highly recommended. As for Newsnight - It's when you see Jeremy Paxman dressed as a Roman Centurion that you've got to worry!
Okay, I'll admit that I didn't bother to check the facts. That said, I was pretty accurate in making the link with Sharpe.
The Government is selling off surplus items - from boots to warships. Do you know the address for the website?
