Soldiers in the Field

Image from this blog 'the 1640s Picturebook; Costume & Stuff from the English Civil War '. It's well worth a look. It says
Drawing by Thomas Neale, dated 1657-1659. An unusual view in its rarity. There are precious few images of English ordinary troops from this period

Thanks for posting. A really nice, sharp image from the period, and especially valuable as a picture of the rank and file at camp. Many thanks again.

I'm not now as convinced that this image is genuine. I feel it's a European image, not English, but still a nice drwaing. Thanks for the link to my blog though. Ian
