Footnotes

  • HISTORICAL NOTE

    "The Camp at Aldershot" was a very popular title at this period for a variety of boxed sets of semi-flat figures, with differing content. This selection has considerable charm from the large number of vignettes included. It is somewhat odd that the principle infantry component is French Zouaves, and most of the cavalry are French Cuirassiers. The lift-out titling might well have served as a form of changeable labeling easily altered for different markets, and this set was possibly intended for sale in France, but given the wrong title insert.
