Some captures from the Pretenders (1972) DVD

Colonel Kirke - do not hiss the villain


The Duke of Monmouth

Kirke's Lambs
Got my copy of this and thought I'd share a few grabs from the credit sequence. I got my copy here post free - it's the cheapest I've seen it.
Monmouth Rebels
I don't usually get excited by DVDs but this series from 1972 has bewitched me as a sort of missing piece of my childhood's jigsaw - why I have always been obsessed with the Monmouth Rebellion.

Battle of Pinkie Cleugh 1547 by Neil Mitchard

My brother lives in Musselburgh near Edinburgh and offered to take some photos for me of this 1547 battle being reenacted. The results are interesting - well done to all those who took part. Wiki on the battle.
