These Muster Lists illustrate a major problem of the Royalist Armies- private soldiers melted away with disheartening regularity while the 'officer' cadre remains almost intact. At full strength the officers of these 90 companies would total 1,002, here there are still 923. The full complement of private soldiers would be 9,000 ifeach company had an establishment of 100, more if field officers had stronger companies, but there are only 2,231.
