I checked my books for anything else and there was a small engagement in Sep 1642 at Babylon Hill, after which the Marquis of Hetford retired to Sherborne Castle before eventually abandoning it - this was very early on in the Civil War, Charles only raising his standard in August of that year. I dont know if that helps, or you may well know it anyhow. The other place to check is what Oggy gave you, the Smoerset Regimental Museum for examples of later uniforms.
    I must confess the link came from a mixture of inspiration and google .... and the fact i took my son to the Shropshire Regimental Mueseum in Shrewsbury Castle at half term

    Cheers for the link and ideas Chaps, am sifting through as we speak...although trying to ascertain what someone who worked in the 'Armoury Section' would wear is proving a bugger! Would they be in full uniform??

    They would only wear their underwear for fear of sparks off items like the belt buckle sparking the arsenal.


    OK, I made that up.

    Thanks for all the advice Chaps, I decided to forgo the rather drab 'Man stocking Arsenal of guns image' and went with Alesonly's suggestion!!


    ....now to: 'Design a pub sign Part III'

    That is a very nice one - must remember to look out for it next time I'm in Yeovil.

    I still always smile when I go past the Railway Inn at Sandford - I really should stop there one day!!

    Too late Ark, already done and now posted on the site.

    Thanks for that Youngie, I do love the good images of signs on the site.
