Our uniforms, much of which we make ourselves the drill and weapons are all based on the regiment from the early 1800's up to the Battle of Waterloo in 1815.
We participate in various re-enactments both in the UK and in Europe, organised by the Napoleonic Association plus other events organised from within by ourselves or by other re-enactment units or localities.
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 a line infantryman, but still be actively involved in the group using their own unique skills.
Furthermore we also have our own Pipers and Drummers, in their distinctive reverse coloured tunics. We welcome any interested musicians, whether they be experienced players, or just wishing to learn.
Our unit caters for every member of the family, whether you would like to be a soldier, partisan, medical staff, a camp follower or a musician, there will always be a place for you within the 79th Cameron Highlanders.
