    This is the Fort of S. Jorge Oitavos.
    It was built in 1642 and is located in Guincho.
    1999 its recovery started and in 2001 it was re opened as a museum.
    The uniforms are repros but they give you an idea of the uniform types used in the period.

    will wait to see if any other Scottish members add any, Edinburgh for example is a castle / fortress and is a good more stratigraphic placed like some others in this thread

    ideal Nuno, i just love this type of History!
