Today being the last Sunday in January, the English Civil War Society held its annual parade to commemorate the regicide of Charles I on 30 January 1649. Only the Royalist half participates; the Parliamentarians get their turn later in the year. Their task today was to serve as stewards in hi-visibility yellow bibs, and they did a great job, not intrusive or bossy at all, as one might expect from Puritans! Fiona and I took well over 250 pictures. Here is a selection. I’ll dump more on Flickr later along with some movie footage which I’ll put on YouTube.
It’s a pleasure to be able to write so little and just let the pictures do the talking. Such a fun and interesting parade to watch. Hearty congratulations to the ECWS for putting on such a superb show: hugely impressive.
