-Crawford’s are probably the regiment referred to at Marston Moor as //​Manchester’s blewcoats under the bloody colours are cut off//. Alternatively this might refer to [[parliamentarian:​foot-regiments:​sir-miles-hobart|Sir Miles Hobart’s Regiment of Foot]] but it must be noted that Hobart'​s Regiment were referred to as the '​Norfolk red coats' when they were at Newark in March 1644, Marston Moor was just four months later. Whilst the re-equipping of regiments did take place, there doesn'​t appear to be one recorded for Hobart'​s:​ whilst not definitive this would lend credence to Crawford'​s wearing blue coats and perhaps carrying red colours if that's what meant by //bloody colours//​. ​+Crawford’s are probably the regiment referred to at Marston Moor as //​Manchester’s blewcoats under the bloody colours are cut off//.
