Re: Ingoldsbys/sabibes 23rd foot war of spanish succession

Hi turrabear, no problem with the delay, I've just found time to catch up; and more than pleased if I can help in any little way.

Re: BLB3 - Cards?

Really love the idea of random events, even if I'm on the receiving end of a particular misfortune. Would prefer playing cards, but more than happy with whatever you guys produce.

Re: Ingoldsbys/sabibes 23rd foot war of spanish succession

From what I understand the 23rd Foot were designated fusiliers in 1702. Regarding the head gear that's an interesting question, and I haven't a definitive answer. I'm certain that the war memorial in Wrexham displays one of the soldiers in a tricorn which may or may not be historically based on the ...
