Sir David,
I think I went to school with this Kalnoky fellow. Who would have guessed he'd grow up to become a Hussar...Bill

And a time-travelling hussar at that! ;-)

All the best,

David.

Sir David,
I found the white flag with the II below the W, and I love it! When I read your email, I did not see the attachment and only found it when I was deleting old emails. Thanks again...Bill

Superior that you have turned your skilled hand to the task of such wonderful uniforms!

HUZZAH!

Hi Bill,

I'm glad you liked that version of the flag; I'll email you about it.

Hi Murdock,

Thanks; I've always loved hussar uniforms. :-) 2 more of the Austrian uniforms to come, Esterhazy and possibly Baranyay (as I wanted a green variant of the uniform).

Huzzah indeed!

David.
