Here is another one in the series of my Very British Civil War series and these are the Leicester Yeomanry These chaps have reverted back to their yeomanry uniform hence the blue rather than a khaki uniform and as with a lot of the yeomanry units as they believe in the maxim of being seen and heard.This has led to a lot of rash and some would say reckless charges, with charging tanks being top of the list. Now the regiment has formed a sort of anti tank, tank hunter role with explosive charges being carried by them to put those tanks out of action. Well thats the theory as they have yet to score a hit on a tank since charging at Albanich and bothering a French built Char B, still they hope one day to take a tank out.
Now is reality the regiment was in the throws of being converted into an artillery regiment, actually two regiments, missing out on being mechanised, the regiments were fully converted by 1940, which means the regiment was still an cavalry/horse regiment. So I have converted some the troops over, actually just brought an 18pdr and crew and painted them in the yeomanry's uniform.
These chaps can be found with both the City of Leicester Socialist Council and also with the Duke of Rutland's Edwardite forces. All figures and gun and limber are by Reiver Castings and the gun and limber is excellent and the cavalry and crew being rather nice, not the best sculpts but still very nice, well worth checking out.
