SEIGE OF CHESTER – August 2015
Just back from a very tiring but most enjoyable muster in Chester. Other than what was probably close to a 2 mile walk to the battlefield, the whole thing ticked all the boxes: spacious camp site, regimental gatherings/song in the awning, lively beer tent and good battles. Despite only fielding 6-7 each day we got to play with a similar number of Bagots on Sunday and work with the musket on Monday, which involved some hand-to-hand with Royalist musket and some good-natured encounters with various push regiments while defending the musket.
We posed for a lovely picture (courtesy of Rusty Aldwinckle) which will appear in orders soon along with a blog from Martin. Pity we couldn’t get the whole regiment together, including some of the Mackenzie boys who were putting on a display with the apprentices.
Anyhow, a fab time was had by all.
Here’s to Crowland Abbey!
