For Mark etc

 


I notice that your Infantry musicians are missing one important instrument, often thought to have been invented in the 19th century by Adolph Sax - it was in fact first invented by the Hessians in the 18th Century and known as the Hessian Sax. 

I'm sure there's a Wikipedia entry to back me up on this

  4. Nice to have some genuine Tidders in your collection... I wasn't aware Minifigs did an 18c band.
