The Gard te Voet (Dutch Foot Guards) always lead off on the attack in my scenarios. We activated two other brigades at the kick off - The Huguenots and one Danish. In the first game the 1st battalion of the Blew Guards was wiped out to a man whilst getting out of the river. The second battalion suffered losses. In the second game both battalions of the Blew Guards died to a man around Oldbridge! In the third game Gerry managed to push the Guards through the western end of Oldbridge and rout both battalions of King James's Foot Guards. Deeply ironic that 'Jacobite Gerry' was the most successful Williamite commander of the day!
|Berwick leads the Jacobite cavalry to glory|
Oh and yes, King William DID fall in the Boyne! We played pontoon for his soul and Mike Harrison beat the House to rescue his Majesty who was carried to the shore winded but safe!
