The Earl Of Loudoun’s Regiment of Foote


The Earl Of Loudoun’s Regiment of Foote are a Lowland Scots infantry regiment based on the actual recorded regiment which was raised in Glasgow and which saw extensive military service on the smokey battlefields of the 1640s. The Regiment meet at “musters” which can vary in size from small “living histories” and small drill displays up to full-blown “majors” or battles. All arms of military life are employed in the society; regiments of infantry armed with pike and musket, squadrons of horse (cavalry) and batteries of ordnance (cannon). The regiment prides itself on its skill at arms on the battlefield, its historic realism both in combat and lifestyle, its individual member’s knowledge of the period and above all its friendly family atmosphere.
