That's interesting. Cast iron! Think how heavy that would be. I guess the soldier could grill on it for dinner, too.:D  Just kidding. I wonder how effective such a vest would be and how commonly these were worn.

Maybe a cast iron vest would be more common on a cavalry man rather than an infantry man who would be hard pressed to march very far with that much weight, even if he wasn't wearing it, but jst lugging it around between battles.
