Hi all, can anyone tell me (or even better show me!) where the yellow cord lines for this chap are supposed to be fitted? I like the chap on the right in daz's photo above, looks very tidy and in keeping with the box artwork, but given the length of the lines, what on earth is supposed to happen to them once they disappear over his right shoulder? And are they really meant to attach to the back of his helmet as I've seen in some photos? Ta in advance.

Non of mine are correct in the photo (old pic). As far as i can work out. The line starts top left and goes under the epaulet down the back, under arm back around to make a row of 4 cords under the epaulet and clips on the helmet. When helmet is not worn it clips to the lower right jacket button.
I also didn’t think much of this figure until after I started to put one together , * not finished yet as still need some Spurs and lance …..I’ve given him the sword that he should have but Palitoy didn’t give him! Interesting doing the research for the project…..Note that the girdle ( belt. ) fastening (done up) is on the left hand side This is how the Cap Lines go
the hook on back of helmet it to secure (when not worn)the chin scales (helmet strap) nothing to do with the cap lines ! ☠️ into the Valley of Death ☠️
* love it now note ..the end (acorns) of the Cap lines can Hang like this or in a loop like daz has done
