Isle of Wight 1643

Postby Jim Smith » Thu Jun 15, 2006 5:31 pm

This August I'm dipping a toe into ECW re-enactment by attending the 'It's Warre" event at Arreton Manor. I'll probably end up portraying someone from the Parliamentary foot regiment of Sir John Lee - commanded at that time by Colonel Carne. Can anyone recommend sources for finding out more about ECW regiments in general and this one in particular?

No help at all, but I really like Arreton Manor - don't forget to try and find the secret passage...

My mind not only wanders - sometimes it leaves completely!

Try Stuart Peachy's excellant and never ending Opus on regiments in the West Countries. Apart from that. Down south is all southern to me!
