You can't beat some siege engineers..I noticed in Newbury museum they have thick leather wide brimmed hats, which they claim were used by engineers (RA Leeds and NCWC both having shoulder supported lobster pots on display).

I think I might have the same affliction too. Don't think there is a cure

Must confess a little jealousy in seeing some of the goodies available in larger scales, not much available for true 15mm

Here's a picture


Another one link Also pics of siege lobster pots.
The front chap in the petard party is wearing one.

Yet to see a siege death's head helmet, as illustrated in Haythornwaite, apart from modelled in 28mm.


The more I look at the hat, I am beginning to wonder if it is on display the wrong way around, there appears to be a bracket (and in my other picture, a corresponding hole which might suggest a zischagge type nose guard
