The Bluecoats Auld Lang Blue by Raoul Cauvin


The Bluecoats Auld Lang Blue by Raoul Cauvin

Contrary to what you may believe, even the very martial Sergeant Chesterfield didn't always wear the Union's blue uniform. Both he and Blutch were civilians at the beginning of the war - butcher's boy and barman, respectively. So, how did they find themselves in the 22nd Cavalry? Well, there was a rather unscrupulous recruiting officer, a lot of alcohol, an overly eager young lady ...and a definite aversion for the infantry!
