Thanks to Steve Stanley for this.
This is something you don't see every day - mounted ECW dragoons - here they are at Beeston castle for EH. Aston's Dragoon FB page for all you need to know and more. They really are impressive and worth checking out - they say Sir Thomas Aston's Dragoons is a progressive living history group portraying Royalist Dragoons of the English Civil War.
Based on the regiment raised by Sir Thom Aston for the King's cause in
1643, through primary material evidence, our approach to clothing,
equine care, equipment and image of the mid 17th Century soldier in
England is set high, but not at the cost of enjoying ourselves!
Tonight and early tomorrow is the anniversary of this the last battle on English soil. Wiki
Apparently the SK are doing Sedgemoor next July it being the 330th. From a personal point of view my first ever reenactment as a participant was in 1985 doing 1685 so I am interested in popping along. The image above is of Dumbarton's and is by Stephen Walsh for the Osprey 'Matchlock Musketeer'.
