So presumably a decade of military dictatorship, the fall of a major dynasty, the foundation laying of modern science, some nasty plagues, the building of many nice buildings is not enough?

Plus a big fire, change of royal family, and enough science to keep BBC 2 going for ever.

Wasn't that the year that it was realised that Van Dyck had been painting various royal personages wearing football socks? :twisted:

It was also the period in which they discovered that officers were forming the first officers clubs. These were in fact groups of middle ranking officers of doubtful backgrounds who were positioned carefully behind pike and musket blocks. Trying to emulate the masons they adopted strange leaning postures (a total of 53 were recorded in a selection of inaccurate drawings) using a variety of were loosely referred to as pole arms.
Again the desert boot was present proving that regardless of rank the desert boot was in fact classless universal footwear.
Like many things from the past the legend has come done that once a officer had joined one of these clubs he became immortal. The Battlefields of Marston Moor, Preston and Worcester still echo with the chitter and laughter of the "officer clubs" whilst in the background you can still hear the moans of the foote soldier as he curses his pike or musket for their inability to break the officers club.
