Re: Huguenot Infantry in Ireland

As far as I can tell the Huguenot Regiments were employed in the Dutch Stadhouder's Army and therefor not issues with Pike. See : War, Religion and Soldiering, 1685-1713,

I hope this helps, unless anyone else has any more accurate information,

regards

Re: Partizan

Partizan is always the highlight of the year, however there seems to be a disturbing trend for traders and clubs to start packing away earlier each year.. :( I have been involved in putting on both demonstration and participation games for longer that I care to remember and I believe that when putti...
