King's Own

Welcome to the re-created King's Own Regiment of 1775, a social group of living historians portraying the lives of His Majesty’s Light Infantry soldiers and their families during the American War for Independence.

Our goal is simple, to be the best: the best-drilled, best-looking, hardest-fighting body of British Light Infantry in Revolutionary War re-enacting.

The Light Infantry company of the King's Own (or 4th) Regiment served with distinction from the very first action of the war on Lexington Green.

Many gallant lives were lost fighting for King and Country against a stubborn and resilient insurgency. We honour the memory of these veterans.

We are always hungry for recruits. Many apply, but few are chosen. Do you have what it takes?
