Oudeschans museum III

Nederland heeft gelukkig veel musea en al die musea hebben fraaie gidsjes en achtergrondliteratuur. In een foldertje uit Oudeschans, bijgaand een mooie prent over de krijgsverrichtingen in Oost-Groningen.


We Dutch are blessed with a lot of musea, and all those musea have guides and booklets. In the Oudeschans museum I found a real treasure, showing the 1672/1673 war in the eastern part of the Province of Groningen. The text deals with the fight of Colonel Jorman near the town of Winschoten and the surrender of the town of Oudeschans, under Munster commander Grubbe.

Oudeschans museum II

Nog meer foto's van Oudeschans en omgeving..


Some more pics of the small fortress town of Oudeschans. We visited the town before, but then the museum was closed, and as today was a good day, we undertook te voyage again.

It's a small but very nice museum showing archeological artifacts of the 16th and 17th century. The garrison church is one of the buildings that was restored.

"God Save Catalonia" in English!

I'm persuaded that few people would give any credit from a very start to the assertion that, during the War of Spanish Succession, English/British Infantry in the Peninsula might have been uniformed in a colour different to red. More specifically, in blue. However, as unlikely as you might judge it, this is precisely one of the most striking results obtained by recent investigations of a group of researchers, under the DIDPATRI label of Barcelona University, on the English/British military intervention in the Iberian Peninsula and the Principality of Catalonia.

International fans will be glad to be acknowledged that this book, which was originally published in Catalan language as a 144 pages paperback booklet, has just been released in English version --which shares the former one's very same format and illustrations, except for that it has been digitally published --and can be obtained for free!. English version of God Save Catalonia! can be found this location of the issuu.com website.
