Liberty Bell Legion Additions

In my last post, I described a unit I have created for my Very British Civil War gaming - the Liberty Bell Legion, raised in the United States to oppose the Fascists surrounding the British throne.  The company headquarters and the 2nd Rifle Section have finally been outfitted and have joined the anti-Royalist forces in southwestern Suffolk.

2nd Rifle Section - lieutenant and eight riflemen
The Legion has begun field training with the Anglican forces around Bury St. Edmonds.  A third rifle section is still being outfitted. All the Legion units will join the anticipated actions against the Royalist and BUF forces in eastern Essex in the spring.

Appropriate to see antiFascist forces based in Bury St. Edmunds, since it isn't that far from the town of Thetford, birthplace of one Thomas Paine... ;)
