A Visit from Old England

These Gentlemen are parading in Boston Mass, I am sorry I missed it.  This is what a pike and shot (musket) could look like.  Forget about the officer in the Busby (tall furry hat).

Every year two of the oldest regiments in the world mark a special day in America’s History in Boston:

The Honourable Artillery Company (HAC) is the oldest regiment in the British Army, it’s also the second oldest regiment in continous existance in the world, the third oldest is its sister regiment the Ancient & Honorable Artillery Company (AHAC) of Massachusetts.

This year 250 or so members of the HAC travelled to Boston for the June Day Parade, including 60 members of the Company of Pikemen & Musketeers, 45 members of the HAC Band and the Corps of Drums, 9 HAC Special Constables and a lone Light Cavalryman; making up the numbers were various family and friends.
