Janissaries.  Left, an officer of the Janissaries wearing the traditional trailing white hat, and behind him is a new recruit.  Centre, at Constantinople it was the Janissaries who finally stormed the ancient walls and ensured the city's capture.  Right, to the Janissaries a cooking pot was a valuable object, for they cooked their main diet of porridge in it - but, upturned, it becane a symbol of their discontent.  Original artwork for illustrations on pp10-11 of Look and Learn issue no 692 (19 April 1975).  Lent to Look and Learn for scanning by The Gallery of Illustration.
