English Civil War Dragoons

Thanks to Steve Stanley for this.
This is something you don't see every day - mounted ECW dragoons - here they are at Beeston castle for EH. Aston's Dragoon FB page for all you need to know and more. They really are impressive and worth checking out - they say
 Sir Thomas Aston's Dragoons is a progressive living history group portraying Royalist Dragoons of the English Civil War.
Based on the regiment raised by Sir Thom Aston for the King's cause in 1643, through primary material evidence, our approach to clothing, equine care, equipment and image of the mid 17th Century soldier in England is set high, but not at the cost of enjoying ourselves!
