Bloody Aughrim July 12, 1691 - refought by the LoA Part 5 - Jacobite Order of Battle

Dragoons garrison the ruins of Aughrim Castle
The Jacobite order of battle we used. I have not listed it in the normal format of first line, second line etc. I have used the regimental names of the units as we represented them which means that some of these units were not at the battle but our model soldiers were!
