Research Funding

I am absolutely delighted to tell you all that I am going to be receiving research funding from a heritage organisation in the USA. https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-New-Sotterlee-Project/142916989102109?ref=ts&fref=ts.

The outcome of the work will be a thorough examination and explanation of how British cavalry operated on the battlefield during the 17th and 18th centuries in a number of different theatres. These were primarily Western Europe and North America, but also included India and Scotland, which all presented different challenges requiring different approaches. The research will cover a number of subjects, including, but not exclusively:
• The drill and combat techniques of the individual soldier, including such things as the use of the sword and horsemanship.
• The combination of individuals into units and their organisation, how these units were moved and fought, their management and command and control.
• The tactics employed in battle under varying circumstances.
• Where possible the effectiveness of the cavalry would be analysed.
