For God and Country
Two companies of Parliamentary musketeers, covered in dust from a long march on dry roads, stand ready to fight for their God and England.
Armed with short range matchlock muskets, these men would give covering firepower to the pikemen who were the main infantry shock force of the army.
The red dots identify these as the 2nd and third companies, the first company was the pike unit while the colonel would have the flag without dots.
