On the Baltimore Rangers website in our Historical images section is a woodcut of Williamite soldiers circa 1695 with priming horns".
Oh, and glad you like our site :)
This is the image from the Baltimore Rangers site.
I must say here that I know John Machate through other living history sites, and I hold him in high regard. John is a dedicated living historian with a good reputation. However, looking at the above image I am still not convinced that these are priming horns they are carrying. For one thing the horns size, they look to me to be main powder horns. For another they are slung too low for priming but not too low to use a powder measure for a main charge.
What are you're thoughts on this?
My thanks to John Machate for bringing this image to my attention, and for his comments. Very much appreciated.
