Newspaper accounts of over 1200 military soldiers who intentionally fled from their units across Great Britain from 1726-59. The details provided in these articles include name of the accused, aged, personal features, [in many cases] birthplace, and any additional attributes the issuing regimental agents thought necessary to include. The supplied accounts remain unchanged, as they appear in the original newspapers, and it is with the greatest of hope that the reader will find this era, the eighteenth century, to be among the most fascinating of times in British military history.


CHALLENGE COINS SERIES

Challenge coins have been a long-standing tradition in military history for well over a century, and presenting a service member with a coin is just one way in which leaders show their appreciation for dedication and hard work.

A challenge coin is not merely just a token. Today's coins are a source of pride for warriors at every level. And whenever warriors gather together, they will challenge one another by what is known as "coining." The warrior's unique group coin is slammed down on the bar as a symbolic gesture to challenge all in another particular group to proudly display their coins. He who is last (or if a soldier could not produce his coin) had to purchase the next round of drinks for his friends.

Our beautiful coins come in high quality 3D relief, and bright vivid colors that leave us in awe each time we look at them. And we inspect every order to ensure your challenge coin will stand the test of time.

The 17th-century English ships were usually equipped with demi-cannon guns that fired a 32-pound solid shot ball, and could weight upwards of over 3,000 pounds. They were capable of firing the shot with such force, that they were often known to penetrate more than about one meter of solid oak wood at a measured distance of over 80 m.
