Brits reenact the regiment (more or less)

Mississippi Signals C.S.A.’s primary interest appears to be in the 13th Mississippi Infantry Regiment, though they seem to content themselves with reenacting a signals unit (wig-wag flags), at “battles” from April through October, near the West Midlands of Central England.

For some reason these Brits think the names of the letter companies, such as the Newton Rifles (Company E, which became D after the regiment’s 1862 reorganization–henceforth to be styled D, (E) were mere “nicknames” rather than what they were: The names of local militia units of a town or county which Mississippi’s new Confederate state government organized into a regiment. Don’t miss the images of the Brits in their butternut costumes. I don’t see any farbs among them.
