Dear fellows,

looking for a thread concerning the cavalry of the Japanese Empire I found nothing really useable, so I decided to start one of my own.

Maybe there are collectors and reenactors out there?? This is the thread for you!

Here we can gather erverything regarding Japanese cavalry!

I already got this nice link with fantastic pictures:

http://japanese-cavalry.cocolog-nifty.com/

, but sorrowly does the given mailaddress on this website work anymore.

Hint to translate this Japanese cavalry-website:

Quote:
1. Copy the address of the Japanese web site.
2. Go to this translation site: http://www.systranet.com/web
3. Click on the Web Page tab.
4. Paste the Japanese address in the right box.
5. Select Japanese to Deutsch.
6. Click "Translate" button.


Here one photo from my cavalry-collection, got it recently:

Horrido!
