79th Regiment of Foot

Portraying history and re-enacting life as it would have been in the 79th Cameron Highlanders Regiment during the Peninsular Wars and up to the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. We try to recreate as authentically as possible the everyday life for the soldiers and their families within the regiment, using costume, muskets, drill and food cooked to authentic recipes and day to day routine life in the camp. We are proud of our living history which aims to provide an insight into the camp life of a regiment of that period and we were one of the first Napoleonic groups to do this.

This aspect of our group provides opportunities to persons who may not want to portray the life of a line infantryman, but still be actively involved in the group using their own unique skills.
