Master gunner Marcellus Goodwyn and his crew are experienced artillery men. Having fought against the Scottish in 1639. Marcellus is a good friend of Sir Thomas Hawksby. His crew consist of Rowland Hayman (kneeling by the tool box), Thomas Croome, (about the light the cannon), and ‘Slow’ Jon (carrying the cannon shot). The men have worked together for many years and although they are now a part of Hawksby’s regiment they rarely socialise with the other men. In battle this close nit friendship makes them a fast and efficient team.
Here they are seen with a Demi-Culverin gun, affectionately named Big Betty after one of the camp followers.
