New Model Army Dragoon

Here is the next of the series of the Naseby Battlefield Project, please check them out either here at their website or here on their facebook page and if you can support them in any small way as they are trying to bring a visitors centre to the battlefield and beef up the profile of the battle. I am supporting them and have for a couple of years now as it seems to be the forgotten battlefield of England, even though it is one, if not the most, important battles of the War of the Three Kingdoms but also modern British History.

Anyway back the Dragoon, he is dressed as a typical NMA Dragoon with a felt hat, though in reality he would more than likely be wear a woolly Montero hat, but the image everyone has is that of a them wearing felt hats. He has the standard NMA equipment with the blue bandoliers and would be wearing a sword, but that would be on the other side which you cant see. The Musket is actually a Dragon which the Dragoons got there name which a shorter, only four foot barrel, matchlock. Here he is.

  3. Oh this is one of your finest yet. The colour on that jacket, excellent. You have created a kind of sheen on the fabric that makes it breathe.
