Monmouth Rebels

It's been a while since we had any photos from my old Monmouth Rebellion Living History group the 1685 Society. These images were taken at Monmouth beach at Lyme where the Rebels landed on June 11th - we were regular visitors there portraying the landing for tv shows. Portrayed is Lord Grey (Dave Allen) and Colonel Venner (who was wounded in the stomach at Bridport) and Hucker who is wearing one of the 100 red faced purple coats Monmouth brought over. Hucker, a captain and a Taunton man was blamed for betraying the attack at Sedgemoor though this is unlikely.
Quite a few people are using the Glory of the Sun figures for the Rebellion and I can't see any reason why you shouldn't - be nice if the period got a revival. I might even start a new group to recreate the period...get in touch if you're interested.
