WP:MilHist Assessment[edit]

I would imagine there's not much more to be said here. You've included a picture, discussed its origins, and its presence/use/appearance in different countries. LordAmeth 15:41, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

Origins[edit]

Perhaps someone could look into* the (Western European) historical practice of adding references to medieval costume in military uniform. Gorgets, chainmail epaulettes, certain kinds of headwear etc. are all medieval-themed decorations to uniforms which have no practical use. I am quite sure aiguillettes fall into the same category.

* By this I mean "find a source". :D
