Arrival at Odiham ...

On arrival at Basing House in the morning, the supplies are unloaded and Sir William gets some directions to Odiham where he is to join with the main body of Hopton's army.
They arrive late in the afternoon at Odiham finding it bustling with activity, with encampments around the edge of the town; they are directed to where they are to make camp for the night.
After seeing that his troops are getting setup in their encampment, Sir William went up to the Manor house to present himself to Lord Hopton.

Do we sense a battle in the offing? Your scene dressing is superb and really provides an esthetically pleasing back drop for the military actions. Even a skirmish action as an attempt is made to get away with badly needed supplies would work quite well.
Happy holidays!

Nice as always. I often wonder why Americans tend to be Royalists - odd that .You'd think that as a republic they'd support the Good Guys- or is it simply a case of Sellar and Yeatman....
