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).
