they were called the Duke of Schomberg's Horse (395 men probably in 3 or four squadrons)

3. Holding the British Fascist Party's Annual Summer away day in down town Tel Aviv...
Hope you are getting the idea
You may(in some bizarre way) offend SOMEONE of SOME PERSUASION who builds their whole life around archane bigotries but who have not one single idea why the believe what they believe doing so only because they are copying what mummy and daddy did in the generation before..
Anyway, still thinking about doing the Boyne at a show
... and spookily, it was actually my initial choice for a scenario to be included in ULB but I passed it over for something larger..... you never know, there is still time... now, where's Clarence
OH... C L A R E N C E !!!
