Default Space:1889 Character Sheet

Here is a one-page PDF of the Character Sheet from the back of the Space: 1889 Basic Rulebook. The book gives express permission for copying.

(I tried uploading to Image Files here on CotI, but got "Bad File" message; assuming PDF not allowed format? Size only 44K, can't think what else might be "Bad" about it.)

I'm not afraid about bullets, what scares me is the speed at which they're incoming.

The "10 year" rule - page 71-72 of the Soldier's Companion.

My interpretation of it: A single career is not more than 10 years; more requires 2 matching or complementary careers.

The years service by rank is interesting - and skips the appointed ranks. And also restricts rank by age. Which means that if you want a short service Soc 2-3, he may be a private...
Working from it and some regulation books I found online, and several reenactor websites and regimental websites...

❶ for a PC, a private should have 3 in.
❷ Appointment, not substantiative rank
❸ UK law prohibited Colour at anything less than 15
Don't know if Staff was so restricted
❹ After 1881, the insignia changes to a large crown on lower sleeve;
_ after 1890 or so, a wreathed crown for RSM
❺ RCM Doesn't exist until the 1890's, even tho RSM does..
❻ distinctive epaulettes plus the insignia
❼ Staff is for Arty & Engineers, Colour for infantry
