Colonel Richard Bagot’s Regiment of Horse

Here we have the first of a brace of Bagot's: in this case, a straight out of the packet no headswaps cavalry unit, with the sort of flag even I could paint free hand.


Richard Bagot was the Royalist governor of Lichfield and led his Regiment of Foot at Naseby, where he was mortally wounded.


But let us concern ourselves with his Regiment of Horse. Raised by Bagot in 1643, not long after he was made Governor, his Regiment of Horse was mainly a garrison regiment based in Lichfield; however, they did, on occasion, venture out to fight with Prince Rupert.


They fought at Cotes Bridge, Newark, Burton on Trent, Leicester, and Naseby.
