Given that date, everything here is accurate. The men wear the riding breeches and boots with spurs, and all have standard pouches for rifle ammunition. The man in the cap has binoculars and a map case, strongly suggesting an officer of some sort, and though he is unarmed his rifle pouches were a surprise as we would have expected that he would carry a submachine gun by this date. The standing figure is also unarmed, but the rest have the Kar 98k carbine, which is fine. The saddle arrangements are excellent on all the animals, including not just the saddlebags but also the typical folded greatcoat, blanket etc. at the back of the saddle, and even the mess tin correctly strapped to the right saddle bag. Officers usually went without saddle bags, but all animals here have them, so the officer figure will have to have them. The one obvious missing item is the reins, which is a rather crucial element that none of these animals have been given!

Japanese helmets dating from the fifth century (long before the rise of the samurai class) have been found in excavated tombs. Called mabizashi-tsuke kabuto (visor-attached helmet), the style of these kabuto came from China and Korea and they had a pronounced central ridge. [1] [2]
