The Battle of Roundway Down, English Civil War - Painting by Graham Turner Roundway Down Ref: Gic-G263

An incident from the battle of Roundway Down, fought on 13th July 1643, and illustrating how thick and heavy armour had become at this time.

Captain Richard Atkyns found himself facing a Parliamentarian dressed in full cuirassier armour, whom he believed to be Sir Arthur Haslerigge. Atkyns reported "..I then immediately struck into him, and touched him before I discharged mine (his pistol); and I'm sure he staggered, and presently wheeled off from his party and ran….. Follow him I did, and in six score yards I came up to him, and discharged the other pistol at him, and I'm sure I hit his head, for I touched it before I gave fire….

Hearing the story Charles I said of Haslerigge "Had he been victualled as well as fortified, he might have endured a siege of seven years".
