Colonel Edward Rossiter’s Regiment of Horse
This incarnation of Rossiter's Regiment of Horse is their New Model Army guise: the earlier form of the Regiment carried cornets with a black field, upon joining the NMA they were given new cornets with a white field. I've given them Captain Owen Cambridge's troop's cornet - we know the designs of six cornets belonging to different troops.
Rossiter would hand over command of the regiment to Colonel Philip Twistleton in 1647 after he was dismissed from the army for his support of Parliament in its disagreement with the Army about the King's captivity at Holdenby House*. Rossiter's Horse had escorted the King to Holdenby House and were part of the guard once he was at Holdenby.
Twistleton would lose command to Colonel John Clobery late 1659, early 1660 when Monck reorganised the Regiment.
A number of headswaps with this unit, and a mounted casualty; cornet, as always from Maverick Models.
I also think I have done really, really well not to make any reference to Rising Damp, Rigsby or the late Leonard Rossiter during the writing of this post.
* Parliament had placed Charles at Holdenby, the Army objected to the King being held so close to London.
