Drummers of the time of James II

This is a useful image of the coronation of James II entitled The Kings Herb-woman, & her 6 Maids, with baskets of sweet herbs & flowers, strewing the way; the deans beadle of Westin; the high constable of Westminster; a fife; drums; the drum major.
Obviously the military 'meat' of this dish are the drums and drum major...very rare to see an image of this time. Shows coat styles, sword through a slit in the coat, waist sash...brilliant
