A Royalist Ensign
Here is the next one in the English Civil War series and its a Royalist Ensign in John Owen's Regiment of Foot. The chap is dressed in the finest of clothes as would be all officers and he would not be uniformed as the troops would be. Sir John Owen's Regiment fought at Naseby and Sir John Owen's Regiment of Foote were raised in North Wales, but with men from Cheshire and Shropshire in its ranks, due to Sir John's family connections. Since the regiment campaigned all over England subsequent casual recruits would have come in from as far a field as Cornwall and Northamptonshire. Here is the chap.
