WSS: Cadogan's Regiment of Horse

My last English cavalry unit for this phase of the project is Cadogan's Regiment of Horse.  Originally raised in 1685 (the same as the previous two - something interesting must have happened that year!*) as the Duke of Shrewsbury's regiment, then Langdale's, Hamilton's Coy's, the 6th and Arran's before passing to William, 1st Earl Cadogan's command in 1703.  The Regiment fought at Blenheim, Elixheim, Ramillies, Oudenarde and Malplaquet amongst others.




As before the figures are from Black Hat and the speculative flag is from Warflag.

*Only kidding - of course I know it was the Monmouth Rebellion!
