This is probaably the same as other repros posted, but I't thought I would give it a try.

Have you seen these face masks? Very haunting.

Hi

It was not unusual for Roman Cavarly units to wear these maskx, esociallly on parade, but Hugh would know more.

I suspect their use in combat may have been limited.

I will research it some.

The question is, I suppsoe, were the face masks "generic" of made individually??


Hope to see you soon.
