I followed the link from Sir Charles' post in the Boer War Rifles thread, then just kept scrolling down.(Since Facebook didn't ask me to sign in)

Having reviewed the WPG crackerjacks, I can say they can work or be made  to work from the mid 1880's until the 1950's.  You can even cut most of the tar flap away to recreate the short lived 1913 working blouse. The hard part is finding the proper Donald Duck hat to go with the blues.  The Dixie cup first appeared in the 1880s, about the time of the ABCD ships, first units of the New Steel Navy.

I'm especially excited about the dress whites, that's a pattern that has not been seen for a LONG time.  I may need to get a set of those.

I was just over on WPG, and they do now offer the Donald Duck hat, but as to whether it's proper for our time period, I don't know. Check in the new arrivals section.
