Kit - Or What is in your backpack
There is a series of these pictures that shows the various selections of gear that would have been part of a soldiers kit. I think they are short a few things like a big bit of blanket or at least a cape. The Scotts' tartan, I'd read, was a huge piece of cloth that they could unwind and use to wrap themselves in at night. That is a big shield but I guess he could sling it across his back, not sure where he put the small axe. The spear and the big axe could go over a shoulder while he walked. This guy would be kind of spoiled for choice in regard to weapons.
