Basic kit usually weighed about 40-60 lbs. this includes uniform, rifle, rifle ammo, boots, webbing, and a rucksack with rations spare cloths (socks, underwear, etc.) personals (toothbrush, shaving kit, mess kit) and just about anything else a soldier could fit in there he wanted with him.

Since he was a Roman soldier, it is doubtful that George carried any saint into battle.

A standard that they carried into battle. Losing your standard there was about the worst thing that could happen to a legion.

It was a pole wih a flag/ banner on it the Romans carried into battle. It was a HUGE dishonor to lose.

The standard bearer of a Roman army carried the sign of the maniple/cohort so that the men in his particular division knew where they were supposed to be. The standard bearer was in or near the front line of battle and leading them in a parade march. The soldiers followed their standard.The standard bearer of a Roman army carried the sign of the maniple/cohort so that the men in his particular division knew where they were supposed to be.

they would be given equipment such as spears, swords and to protect them they would carry shield's. they would not go to battle on a horse, but in parades a horse would carry the soldier.

a javelin or two as well as his shield and sword when he went into battle. However when on the march, he carried about 70 pounds of gear. (They were not referred to as "Marius" Mules" for nothing) The equipment was strapped to his "fulcra" or carrying pole. Some of the gear he carried was his "dolabra" or digging tool, two wooden stakes, his cooking pot, rations, his shield in its leather cover, and his helmet which was slung over his shoulder.

A Roman army standard bearer was called a "signifer". He carried the standard of a legion, cohort or maniple so that in battle the men knew where they were supposed to be. He carried a smaller round shield and was the one with the animal skin over his helmet and shoulders. He was always well protected as in addition to carrying the standard he was also the cohort's banker. The "aquilifer" was the legion's eagle bearer.

Battle of the Standard happened on 1138-08-22.

The "aquilifer" was the standard bearer of the legion's eagle, the symbol of the spirit of the legion. He carried it in battle, in parades and was responsible for it on the march. He set up the shrine for the eagle in the marching camps. He, like all the other standard bearers, held a rank above the ordinary men, and also was in charge of the legion's bank.

'Battle wounds' is a general term that means any wound inflicted on a soldier. "Casualty" is a term that means any soldier who was killed, wounded or mortally wounded in battle.

The Roman army wore their equipment for the same reasons that our moderns soldiers were their equipment, protection.What would you want them to do, rush into battle in togas?

No battle carried more importance. Antietam had the most lives lost-but Gettysburg was a truning point. The most importance was carried by the true begining. STATES RIGHTS!

A soldier who parachutes into battle (although technically they rarely did so and "para" came to mean elite soldier, with the ability to parachute into a battle zone one of many skills).

Question was posted in category WW2. There were not any "old soldiers' who carried spears, unless you mean the Swiss Guard who protected the Pope at the Vatican. Otherwise, there were many types of soldiers who carried spears or long-handle battle axes. Even as late as 1860's, the pike was carried by non-commissioned officers as a sign of their rank. Pikemen carried very long spears. Roman Centurians soldiers carried a short spear.
