    Can attest to these plates being a valuable source of Uniformology; have them as individual plates, always referring to them.

    Wig & Pen offer a lot of their books in various e-Formats.
    https://www.pen-and-sword.co.uk/ebooks/313/Military/order/title/asc

    Very useful for those marginal buys that you're not quite sure about, but also offer the ability to zoom in (best with PDFs) which gives extra value if you want to use pics as references (in fact I got both the hard copy and PDF of the Absolon Japanese Armour book for that very reason-though at a lower price than currently)

    A full list is here.

    Nap ones include Dawson's superb ref works (lots of photos of the real things):

    https://www.pen-and-sword.co.uk/Napoleons-Waterloo-Army-Kindle/p/18334

    The last is great, but can be bought cheaper (and I assume legit). I got mine at £8.99 here:
    https://www.ebooks.com/en-gb/searchapp/searchresults.net?term=Napoleon's Waterloo Army

    This is a weird one (based on Bardin's Regs) : few illustrations (it's not a uniformology) but great if you want the nitty gritty about how many pairs of underdrawers a soldier had*, what order they had to pack their haversack in, how much they paid into their mess fund, the precise tariff of punishments for their various crimes and misdemeanours and so on (and I'm only halfway through it so far):

    ... and a couple for Nap:

    https://www.pen-and-sword.co.uk/Gallantry-Medals-And-Decorations-Of-The-World-Kindle/p/8222


    *Well since you ask, the answer is 'generally none' until 1812 as the culottes/pantalon had a sewn in linen lining instead (although some wimpish regiments did issue separate calecon/drawers). In 1812 they were issued with unlined pantalon and separate drawers which were then expected to last a year (it doesn't say if that's between washes as well).

    DOUBLE SHOOT... after promoting it here and ordering it on the 15th I waited patiently for the thud on the doormat, then on enquiring where it was I found out that P&S had run out of stock :arghh:

    I just hope that nobody on this site followed my link and bought 'my' copy :sour:

    The only other affordable option is Matt's US supplier but the shop doesn't ship outside USA and postage is prohibitive... boo hoo :cry:

    Thanks Nap/Mirofsoft.... I'm really peed off ref this as P&S confirmed my order then didn't send it :grumpy:

    They send a 20% off next purchase code but it's not the same :meh:

    .... and thanks Miro, but I really don't want to pay that much so I'll just drop back on the online versions, albeit without the text.
