Jacobite & Williamite Artillery for the Boyne
Baldricks war poetry aside, these guns will be doing duty at the Boyne in the near future. Sadly, they will not be doing so this week. A trip to the hospital has confirmed that while the majority of what has been ailing Kinch is cuts, bruises and injured pride, I also have a bruised femur* and some soft tissue damage on my leg which will not permit of the sort of country ramble that we've been planning.

To be honest, I'm a bit downhearted about the whole thing as the medical wallah was of the opinion that I won't be fit to march for ten days or so. I'll be taking leave from work, but to be honest I'm very unhappy that this is having to be postponed. General Gorman has been very good about it and his "we'll do it together or not do it all" attitude lifted my spirits considerably.
That said, far worse things happen at sea and have been happening on land.
