Never mind soldier’s pay – pay to be a soldier.

This is a superb article on the cost of fighting for king and country, most of which I didn’t know, and though a little outside my period, absolutely fascinating. One to print out and keep.

superbly detailed historical military info. http://englishhistoryauthors.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/an-officer-and-mendicant.html?spref=fb
