The City of London Yellow Auxiliary Regiment of Foot
My final* unit of figures to paint. The 'to do' pile is empty.
So here they are the City of London Yellow Auxiliary Regiment of Foot of the London Trained Bands. A strange choice I hear you say... I selected them purely because their flag is a bit different to any of my other regiments. That really is the reason I have represented them.
The City of London Yellow Auxiliary Regiment of Foot of the London Trained Bands (a bit of a mouthful, so from now on 'City Yellow Auxiliaries') were raised on the 12th of April 1643 during the reorganisation and expansion of the London Trained Bands (henceforth LTB) in the Farringdon Within, Castle Baynard, and Aldersgate areas of the City (in other words the same areas as the Yellow Regiment).
If you are new to the Trained Bands, and the Auxiliaries in particular see my earlier posts:
