Holcroft Blood's Ordnance

I'm going to try and have a regular Friday feature on reenactors of the period. First up is one of the longest established groups for the era recreating the artillery of the late 17th century through to Marlborough's battles, Holcroft Blood's. I've known Roger, the group leader, since the mid 80s and what he doesn't know about artillery isn't worth knowing. With a fine collection of guns and equipment they have been central to all the major anniversary displays on the continent so I would definitely recommend them if you have an interest in this sort of thing.
Their website is very old school but in keeping with that there is a lot of information up there regarding uniforms and organisation that wargamers and so forth would find very useful.
