Hi everyone, just putting the word out that I am now recruiting for a new Jacobite Lowland re-enactment unit. I am putting together a representation of James Crichton of Auchingoul's Regiment for Claymore Re-enactment Group. This is a new venture, already successfully growing with events planned already this season. If anyone is at all interested in the '45 and re-enacting this period, please pm me on here. Crichton's were raised in October 1745 in the Aberdeen area, and were involved in the march south to the English midlands, at Falkirk, and after being absorbed into Lord Kilmarnocks Footguard, were in reserve at Culloden alongside the Ecossois.
The emphasis will be on living history, and attempting to get the details of kit and equipment as correct as possible, as information and research will allow, and putting some firepower into our displays. Its a learning process for all of us! We will be working alongside the Stewarts of Appin Highland unit, and the Manchester Regiment within "Claymore".
Most of us in "Claymore" are midlands(UK) based. Again, please pm me on here and I'll get back to you asap.

Just to add - We have two events booked at Fort Paull now confirmed, one in July and one in August. We are also awaiting confirmation of a few events in the Derbyshire area, so things are progressing nicely. Please contact me on here if anyone is interested in joining(membership is only £12 a year!),
