The Troop at Norton St Philip 27th June 2015

Yesterday we were out in the hot sun at Norton St Philip celebrating the 330th anniversary of the battle of the Monmouth Rebellion of 1685. Dr Chris Scott (author of 'Armies and Uniforms of the Sedgemoor Campaign' and 'Maligned Militia') was there with his wife Pam (pictured) and of course I was there selling my book. All photos Sue Mitchard. A very successful day. Thanks to Alan Larsen for masterminding the whole affair.
