Following a chat with Tiny War games Mats, they have coloured one of their water mats to resemble The water flowing along The Perfume River, so for those of you looking to game the naval actions , this will be ideal

uniform correct for Turcos and also worn by Zouaves keo top
and baggy trousers..Zouaves also wore the famous Jacket..
uniform were almost identical and interchangeable..the climate
played with supplies so "make do" was almost de regiour.
