    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    The Jacobites start to advance through the fog of war and the Gvernment troops deliver one last volley.

    The Jacobite charge is successful and the Government troops are routed and flee from their defence of the Bridge over the river Trent. The gateway to London is now open and undisputed.

    In the aftermath of our victory, you can see myself with my Jacobite CO's lady who is a very old friend from the very early days of my re-enacting career.

    All clothing made by my good Lady Dobbs. We could actually do with a bit more room in the actual Wardrobe.
