Lace Wars 1730-1760

Postby Tod » Thu Feb 18, 2010 10:58 am

Lace Wars was set up by a group of seasoned re-enactors to recreate the period 1730-1760, with emphasis on the 1745 Jacobite rebellion. We now welcome experienced re-enactors as well as those new to the hobby. We are a family friendly society and describe ourselves as a living history group that does skirmishes rather than a group that concentrates on battles.
Our events are held across the UK and in addition we attend events in Europe. We work for large organisations such as The National Trust, English Heritage, and The National Trust for Scotland as well as many independent sites. We also work with TV/film companies and museums, it is us that you will see in the film in the surround screen film at the Culloden Battlefield and Visitor Centre.
We offer a “Try before you buy” week end where you can come along, borrow kit and experience an event before making the decision to join. We’ll even feed you.
Within Lace Wars we have groups that recreate; British Redcoats, Mounted Dragoons, the British Navy, Irish and Scottish troops in French service, Jacobite Highlanders, Lowlanders and English. Our living history camps are open all day where there are soldiers, their wives and children’s, cooks, sutlers, surgeons, and other people attached to or supplying the armies of King George II and Prince Charles Edward Stewart (Bonnie Prince Charlie).
Within our skirmishes we use the drill and tactics of the last civil war and battles fought on British soil.

We pride ourselves on accuracy and knowledge of the period and have members who independently lecture on the period. So if there is some thing you want to know we can put you in touch with the right person. We will help you source or make your costume and assist you with the research into the your particular interest and individual you want to portray.

Ah, then I have complete imagined it! Wouldn't be the first time mind you. Shame as it would be nice to have some 18th Century events in the South

As you'll hear from any group that posts here - "We are recruiting".
We are always recruiting.
We never stop recruiting.

Lace Wars comprises the following units:
Jacobite Forces -
RaT - Rose & Thistle, John Roy Stewarts Edinburgh Regiment - A good Mix of Highland /Lowland troops with a few members having Regular Unit Kit.
Regiment Irlandois de Dillon (Dillons Irish Piquets) - Regulars in the service of France, fighting for the Jacobite cause.
Stoneywoods Btn - Brand New to Lace Wars this year and already boasting a good solid membership of keen, experienced folk. Highland/Lowland Jacobite Unit
Manchester Regt - This is represented by folk from all the above groups coming together on the field. An English MIlitia Regiment fighting for the Jacobite cause.

Government Forces -
Pulteney's 13th Foot - Very well established Redcoat Unit. British Regulars. Always growing. We don't do 'Chocolate Box' our guys, whilst looking uniform, look like they've been on campaign.
Cobham's 10th Dragoons - Part of 'The Cavalry'. Cobhams fight on Horse and Foot. A great unit that covers many aspects of 'Regular' warfare.
Senior Service - Georgian Naval specialists. A small but very well established unit. They'll take on anything with rigging as well as take the field with musket, axe and sword.

All the above units have clothing that can be lent to potential recruits and welcome new faces as guests for a weekend.
If you would like to know more about the tumultuous Mid C18th and fancy fighting for either George or James drop me an email and i'll direct you to the relevant unit.
You join the unit, The units are members of the society.

Many Thanks

Mike
