Back out on patrol ....

Sir William de Willoughby out for a walk in Winchester to stretch his legs - catches up on the latest news with a fellow officer
 He hears that Arundel Castle surrendered to Parliament on the 6th Jnaury; an attempt to relieve the garrison by Lord Hopton a few days earlier had been abandoned after they found themselves outnumbered by the opposition. Waller and his army are content with securing their positions at Farham, Midhurst and Arundel.
---oXo---

In the afternoon Sir William leads out his regiment of horse to patrol to the south of Winchester; regular patrols are carried out to to deter the parliamentarian garrison of Southampton from any raiding activities.
