Sherwood Rangers Yeomanry, 1918.
Out of the blue, the chaps from "Wargames Illustrated" asked if they could use some of my images of WW1 Yeomanry troopers for an forthcoming article on the Battle of Megiddo. With the caveat that the Yeomanry I have painted cover 1915-17 I offered to do a quick headswap to give a couple of troopers a Brodie helmet for that "1918 look" when the steel helmet became much more in evidence in Palestine. So here are a couple of Mutton Chop Cavalry troopers with Woodbine helmeted heads painted up to represent the Sherwood Rangers Yeomanry, 1918.
