These are probably the best I've seen of their type. The top pictures a shiny-new recruit, ramrod straight, chin tucked in, all spit & polish complete with bow tie. The bottom pictures two veteran cavalrymen, weapons laid in the corner, dirty boots, unbuttoned blouses for comfort, whisky bottle at the ready and lit to the gills. This was no doubt one of their rare nights in town; tomorrow it's back to the field for who knows how long.

I ask you, which one of these three gentlemen would you want on your side in a fight?

I don't own either of these, and the owners are unknown to me. I copied them from eBay a couple years ago. If the owner of either photo objects to their appearance here, let me know and I'll remove it.
