Edinburgh City Guard
“His Majesty’s Company of Foot within the Town of Edinburgh”
The City or Town Guard was the Scottish capital’s main defence and police force throughout the 18th century.
From parades along the Royal Mile to skirmishing with Jacobites, being a member of the City Guard is about camaraderie, enjoyment, and engaging with history.
Now members of the “Alan Breck’s Regiment” re-enactment society have brought the Guard back to life, performing at events both in Edinburgh and across the country.
