35th Regiment of Foot

Joining the Unit

- SPECIAL NOTICE- 
We are currently recruiting for Light Company Soldiers to join the unit!       

The uniform of the  "Lights" is a shorter coat, has no regimental lace and uses pared down amount of accoutrements.  This makes it even more affordable to get active in our unit.  (see artist image on left)

We have had to make this addition of a Light Company in order to satisfy the membership inquiries and interest in folks joining the unit.

Our Regimental Lace and Bay wool lining is custom made for us in the UK to ensure authenticity.   Current importation fees and minimum orders make it impossible to do on a soldier by soldier basis. 

Once we have 4-5 men at arms who desire the full (hat company) regimental we will proceed with an international order if desired.

BASIC EQUIPMENT OF A SOLDIER:

The Unit has complete researched information on where these items may be purchased, ordered or otherwise procured. 
New members must obtain a detailed equipment list before any purchase of uniform or equipment are made specific to the regiment. 
Just because a Sutler sells it...it does not mean it is an appropriate reproduction to our time period or unit.  Buyers beware!

*Note:  the unit and some members may have items that can be "loaned" to new members for a few events in the beginning during their get acquainted time to reduce costs of getting started.

While it may seem expensive to get into the hobby, when compared with many other leisure activities and hobbies e.g. golf, skiing, snowmobiling, modern camping, equestrian, etc. Living history is actually quite a bargain----and you stay and camp for free at exotic, famous historic sites that the regular public does not!
