Have dug out my own working papers as well as my copy of Harman's 'guide to the battlefield' which, it should be mentioned, was not produced for or by the OPW which runs the Oldbridge Site but rather by the Boyne Valley Honey Company. Having looked at Harman's army lists I can only assume that he ha...

Hi Ray,

will try to have a look through what I have tonight - I do have a load of regimental histories on a CD somewhere, also the latter part of Walton may throw some light on the matter.

As soon as I have anything I'll post a reply.

All the best,



Mike.

Andy,

is there anything specific or a general overview - Most are covered in my books on the Boyne (Osprey) and Aughrim (History Press), but research goes ever, ever on.

All the best,


Mike.

Osprey Battle of the Boyne

Apologies of this would seem to most members about dragging up the past, but I hope you will bear with me.
