Default Re: Painting of the "Mole at Tangiers"

The BBC have also had an online copy of the 25th at Minorca for some time.
Here is the link, for anyone interested.

Geology-George, the painting of the 25th Regiment of Foot shows us exactly what a British army bagpiper looked like circa 1769.

If we could get a good close look at the painting the "Mole at Tangier" by Dirck Stoop from 1683, we would be able to examine the 4 pipers depicted in more detail. We would see exactly how a British army bagpiper dressed in 1683, and what kind of instrument he played.

Or, we may see a later addition.

Without a close examination, it's impossible to give anything but speculation.
