Flintloque/Silver Bayonet cross over - part nineteen

Continuing with my Flintloque/Silver Bayonet project, this update shows how I modified a couple of wooden rulers into movement measuring sticks. The wooden rulers were bought from The Commandery (an ECW museum in Worcester) and then modified by sanding the reverse (they had the dates and names of the Kings and Queens of England) and trimming to 12 inches before I painted the inches in either red (for the Albion Red Coats) or blue (for the Ferach/French) before I waxed the measuring sticks with clear wax.

The red and blue striped rulers remind me of measuring sticks I had when in school.
