Tillier's Regiment of the Sealed Knot
..today came visiting to mark the re-opening of Winchester's Westgate Museum. These 17th century chaps marched about outside the Great Hall and down the High Street a bit. And yes, I know, this is not the shot I meant to - or should have - put up. There weren't any (undisguised) girls in the army during the English Civil War, but I suppose the fashion angle just got the better of me. And I tell you, if they'd really worn hats with such a rakish curl to the brim I'd have taken the King's shilling like a shot (oops, wrong metaphor!)
There are 2 Extras of men with guns and pikes and baggy trousers - much more in the spirit of.. Unless, that is I change my mind and switch them over!
So that's me, folks. Have a happy evening xx
