Hi all,

As you may have gathered I'm very new to reenacting. I just received my uniform in the mail today. Everything looks good, but I need help with a few things.

1) How do you attach the eagle breast plate to the cartridge box sling?

2) How do you attach the bow plate to the cartridge box?

3) What is the proper way to attach the sling to the cartridge box?

Any help offered would very much appreciated.

Thanks,
Anthony

Rather than try to figure out a bunch of written directions which may or may not conflict slightly, might I suggest that you contact one of the more experienced members of your unit and have him actually show you either at your house or his house.

Actually a member sent me a link for instructions on the C & D Jarnigan website. They had pictures and everything! Mission accomplished!:D

Thanks again.
