Just saw this posted over on the SASS wire and thought I would share just in case you have not seen this web site. I've only looked through part of it so far.

Looks like a cool site.  I'll have to spend more time with it once the Muster is over.

Cool site...thanks for the link.

I was reading the uniform section.  He posted a pic of the 1899 fatigue blouse.  It is almost a dead ringer for a WPG/British Boar War tunic.  Get the collar sorted out and that would work. 

Would it work for the Boxer Rebellion?

Anyone remember Charlton Heston's 85 days in Peking?  Semper Fi, Marines!
Listen!  Do you hear that?  The roar of Cannons and the screams of the dying.  Ahh!  Music to my ears.

I remember him in 55 days at Peking. 85 days must have been the sequel.
