Some of the Art of the Wars of the British Empire

Something interest that I would found out/ Was the fact that most British Army Officers were encouraged & taught how to draw. I think that they could then draw up maps and other things. Like the above and the War that the British had in the Sudan.
Now I will be amongst the first to admit that the Old Empire was not perfect. But all in all. I think that it helped the 3rd World more than it would like to admit.
Anyways, here is some of their better art for you to ponder upon. I myself can not imagine fighting in some of those Uniforms that Tommy Atkins had to wear.
