Training the Local Militia

On Saturday and Sunday 18th & 19th May, Colonel Nicholas Devereux’s Regiment will be visiting the wonderful Moseley Old Hall near Wolverhampton to train the local militia ready for battle against the Royalist forces in the area.
Come and see the intensive training that troops of the English Civil War went through to ready themselves for battle
The troops of Devereux’s Regiment will be delighted to the skills required and the weapons used during the period. The ladies of the regiment will be doing cooking demonstrations and talking about the effects of war on society
Additionally we will have the regimental surgeon in attendance demonstrating the medical care of the day, not for the faint hearted!
