AL militia advance
The initial Royalist defence proved quite stiff at first with heavy casualties beginning to mount in the attackers. A full section of Scots regulars were surprised by hidden Royalist troops and after a short firefight quickly left the field, the flank only secured by supporting militia who with a rather large number of 6's being thrown promptly decimated both sections from D company.
View from the Royalist positions
At this point the Royalist centre also began to suffer with C company also suffering heavily from sharp shooting by the opposing enemy militia. However things look brighter on the left as the BUF and Constabulary have so far repelled the League advance. Early moves next week will quickly determine whether the Royalists can hold onto Bedlington.
