"IRISH MUSKETEER, 1598  This soldier carries a light 'caliver' musket, a little less cumbersome than the standard weapon of the time.
  He is touching the lit match against the gunpowder in the pan, which will fire the weapon.
  His dress is traditionally Irish, but he wears a tall Morion helmet for protection, and carries a supply of gunpowder in the flask at his side."
