My latest blog post looks at two lesser known elements of Montrose's Scots Royalist army in 1645: Irish dragoons and a Scoutmaster called Blackadder (really!). More pictures, and a suitably cunning background description here:

Ditto Flashman14! You gave me ideas for my AWI skrimish forces to add character. Thank you!

Based on the indifferent quality of Montrose's military intelligence, Blackadder must have been true to the series!

Guess Blackadder must have delegated the scouting to private Baldrick?

Like everything but the pink jacket on the coronet.

Thanks, all. Comments much appreciated 👍.

@Shagnasty – I don't blame you. Blackadder isn't too keen on Percy's sartorial choices either 😆.
