The real general vyse was an officer in the kings dragoon guards, he probably wore a uniform similar to this in battle. I chose the name 'generalvyse' ages ago because my middlename is vyse, and i wanted some sort of rank (plus 'vyse' had gone to some final fantasy geeks) i did a little research on the name though and found out about the real general vyse. it also turns out he was a relative of mine, though quite a distant one, in anycase the match seemed a good one so i've stuck with it, and i'm rather proud of my ancestor!!! he fought against napoleon and worked closely with the scots greys, im not sure but from what ive read he was almost certainly at waterloo!!!
in any case he has become my alter ego for deviantart, so i have drawn (a bad version of...) myself in his uniform. hope you like it!!!
plus the two other images are from a friend and google images. the rest is all my own work.
