Signum

Salvete Omnes!

Here are a few quick pictures of our new Signum. We bought it from Len Morgan and had to re-assemble it ourselves. We're still waiting on two spring washers to be delivered from Len and then we'll finish the assemble of the 3 Span and put some pictures of that up - next week hopefully ;)

now all we need is the eagle and were done
"The Kaiser knows the Munsters,
by the Shamrock on their caps,
And the famous Bengal Tiger, ever ready for a scrap,
And all his big battalions, Prussian Guards and grenadiers,
Fear to face the flashing bayonets of the Munster Fusiliers."

Go bua

Fraid' not Pullo. The Eagle only came out with the entire Legion where as both the Vexilia and Signum could be used with smaller groupings. The exact use of the vexilia is hotly debated but the Signum seems to have gone where ever the senior Centurio of the cohort went.

So sorry, no Eagle for us :cry:
