If you read the blog regularly, then you may recall that this morning, a march down The Mall took place to commemorate the Nine Regicides.

Organised by the Roundhead Association of the English Civil War Society, it was a visually spectacular event, enlivened by occasional comments by the bystanders wondering what on earth was going on.

After the parade formed up in Horseguards, awards were handed out to long-serving members to the cry of Huzzah from the rest, and then they marched back up towards Admiralty Arch, where a small group passed through to the statue of King Charles I, which sits on the site of the executions of seven of the nine.

The Royalists put a wreath in front of the statue every January, but this wreath was lain behind the statue. Random, or a deliberate decision not to honour the King they opposed?

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
