Uniforms and flag information sought

I am trying to find an order of battle  for the Dutch Army which landed in 1688 at Torbay. I also am looking for coat/ facing colours and flags. I have tried in vain in my books and on line. Can you help?


  1. Have you asked these guys?

  2. Can't help feeling this might have been in a fairly recent Pike and Shot society 'Arquebusier'.. anyone got a pile of 'em handy to check?

      OK had some answers
      Dannie Fogleman For uniforms and flags, you can try Barry Hilton’s pdfs on the armies at the Boyne and Aughrim.

      Nick Dorrell There is an article on this in the Pike & Shot Society's magazine 'Arquebusier', Volu XXXV - IV. Also included is a breakdown of James II's army and a 'what if' wargames scenario - the battle of Salisbury Plains - for the Twilight of the Sun King rules.

      I copied and pasted this info from Ralph blog to here. If anyone has the arquebusier article and could give me a photocopy ld be delighted.

    2. I managed to dig out that edition of Arquebusier, will get busy with the scanner, then maybe we can arrange to email. It looks a pretty detailed list of units, though maybe not of standards, uniforms etc.. good stuff anyway!
