Richard Delingpole

Musketeer, Royalist Army, 1648

Could be either side in fact, English Civil War.

Representing the poorly-equipped English Civil War soldier, this man would have been given a musket and some rudimentary training and a soldier's coat in the colours chosen by his Commander, who would probably have been a local landowner. All other items were the soldier's own.

This soldier carries a sword and also a dagger (which would have been his own). He is carrying a matchlock musket and is loading from a powder horn, not bandolier.
