I The 1918 British army may be an nr
' mored army.
! The great casualty list that filters
j through the war office every day
' from the front; the convalescent
wounded and battered soldiers that
are always on the streets and the ov
erflowing hospitals are beginn'ng to
I have their effect.
I Many ask: "Isn't there a way to
j minimize this appalling situation?"
Somebody has answered: "Armor."
I And It's beginning to look Uk ar
inior for the British soldiers of 1916.
j While the British war office Is
considering whether It shall slip
back to medieval methods of warfare
so far as the protection of the soldier
is concerned, well known Britishers
are telling the war office through the
press that armor is a natural neces
sity In these days of machine guns
and high-powered rifles.
; Scores of suggestions for modern
1916 armor emanating from scientists
have narrowed down to the practica
bility of a three piece suit of temper
ed steel that would protect the fore
head, breast and abdomen the three
j vital spots of the body. The favor
ed headpiece will, if authorised by
the war office, take the form of the
highly tempered steel skull cap-like
protector now worn by the French
to minimize the danger of shrapnel.
The breastplate would be a thin
leather covered hardened plate of
steel, rurged to fit over the chest
and held by straps that go over the
shoulders and around the waist. The
abdomena protector is suggested In!
the form of another curved sheet of
steel fitting over the lower ribs and
extending down to the hones of the
i hips.
! The British war office four years

breast plate at Aldershot where the!
