The Battle of Tufton ....

continued from the previous post...

Both armies started their advance,

(move the 1st) 
the royalist cavalry impetuous as ever charged and caught the parliamentarian right flank horse at the halt ...
the foot in the centre closed to musket range
while on the other flank both side's horse started forward ....
(move the 2nd) 
On the parliamentarian right flank the other royalist horse regiment hits home
after the initial vollies, the royalist blue foot and parliamentarian green foot fall back ...
the horse on the other flank are now engaged ...
(move the 3rd)
On the parliamentarian right one of their horse regiments breaks and routs
the blue royalist foot advance back into musket range and the grey royalist foot move forward, fire a stiff volley at the centre parliamentarian foot who break and rout ...
the horse melee on the other flank continues with parliament having the edge...
(move the 4th)
the royalist horse and parliamentarian horse break off to rally and reform,
the other royalist horse regiment didn't follow their routing opponents and turned on the flank of the parliamentarian foot, the red parliamentarian regiment looses their nerve and rout ....
the horse melee on the parliamentarian left flank is a draw, both sides get set to pursue their routed opponents ....
with the parliamentarian foot in total disarray and running from the field the battle is over

A VICTORY FOR YE KINGE
