    Hi Ulrich, are these the ones you were telling me about? If so? these are VERY nice and would help compliment my Artillery Majors tunic and other accessories :-D I need a nice Officers Belt-black preferred but not mandatory-as well as a nice Map case-black and pebbeled preferred but not mandatory ;-)) Oh and I could also use a nice pair of officers breeches as well ;-))

    Take care

    Hi Suzie,

    "cinderellla story... So will Ray turn into a pumpkin?" - Uuups, no i think he wouldn´t be a friend to me any longer if he will turn into an pumpkin?

    Thank you, but the last time i tried to put them on was when i was in the age of 14. But now they are some numbers to small for my feets ( 11 and his feets were 8.5)

    Regards


    Ulrich

    Great looking boots! Keeping them polished and in fine shape must be very enjoyable and rewarding!
