CHAP. VII. How the baggage is to march.

AS little baggage as possible may be must be conducted with the Cavallrie. It is the Waggon-masters charge to order it for the march. First, the Generalls baggage is to march, then the Lieutenant Generalls, then the Commissary Generalls, and so the other officers in their degrees.

The place of march is uncertain;a but alwayes it must be most remote from danger. If the danger be in the front, it marcheth in the rear, &c. The Waggon-master (or with some the Pro∣vost) must see that all march in their appointed place, and disband not. A company of Harque∣busiers is to guard the baggage. The horse-boyes march after the waggons, and must not be suf∣fered to march among the troops.
