O'Brien/Clare's regiment

You can find a short history of this famous infantry regiment written by me on this blog.


  1. Interesting post though, always good to see veteran units in someone's collection.
    You should beware of words coming back to haunt you, Dave..."under my command they have never been defeated but I'm sure that's a record that due to end in tears."

  2. Thanks chaps, as much as I enjoyed painting this unit I enjoyed doing the research into the family connection. It would appear that us O'Briens enjoy a good scrap judging by the numbers who fought for other units apart from the three that the 3rd Viscount formed and as anyone who ever played against me at rugby or American football can confirm. 8-)
