Geocache Description:


 

 

Galochas, botas de borracha ou wellies, são botas popularizadas por Arthur Wellesley, 1º Duque de Wellington. Com vasto palmarés militar, em Portugal comandou as tropas que levaram à derrota Napoleónica, durante a guerra Peninsular de 1808-1812.

Foram propostas por Wellington, ao seu sapateiro Londrino, como uma modificação das tradicionais botas do século XVIII, mais ajustáveis à perna e salto mais baixo, tornando-as mais funcionais e confortáveis. Ideais para a dureza das batalhas, ou uso comum. Inicialmente seriam fabricadas em pele, e mais tarde em borracha, graças à invenção da borracha vulcanizada.

As invasões francesas são um tema bastante explorado pelo geocaching, esta cache conta um pouco mais de história, mas sem cromo. Preto clássico, às riscas, com olhinhos ou florinhas, já muitos as usaram.

 

 

 

Wellington boots, rubber-boots or wellies, were popularized by Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington. With an important military curriculum, in Portugal he commanded the troops that led to Napoleon’s defeat, during the Peninsular War of 1808-1812.

They were proposed by Wellington, to his London shoemaker, starting from the 18th-century Hessian boot, modified to fit more closely around the leg, trim removed and heels cut out. The new boots were fabricated in soft calfskin leather, resistant to use in the battles and comfortable for daily purpose.

The French Invasions are a well explored theme in geocaching, this cache tells you a little bit more about it. In classic black, with stripes, even with eyes or little flowers, everybody has used it.
