Once again gentlemen thank you for your advice.

Re: Helion No 27 St Ruth and Aughrim 1691

Its an expanded version of the old book the illustrations are different rather than battle scenes it has 5 pages of uniforms and 3 pages of flags .i,m reading it just now and as far as i can make out the appendixs are the main difference compared to the old version of it.
