A touching photo of German infantrymen about to head off to war. Noble Readers will have noticed the chicken head-dress theme extended here to include the female of the species, along with a rather more worrying trend to dress babies as sailors. Soldiers, however are invariably hatted and helmeted as soldiers. Even the soldier's back-pack has one. No wonder Germany won the"Best-Equipped Army of 1914" award.
Right! No more on chickens and millinery, I promise.
