WHICH ROLE TO CHOOSE?
Regardless of your gender, age or nationality, the Scots Brigade has a role to suit you. All we ask is that you have passion, commitment and a sense of fun.
No role is limited to a specific gender but please note that you will need to be a minimum of 16 years of age to go on the battlefield. Children between ages 10-16 also have the option to join the Apprentices, where they will learn about the various roles. For adults, there are also specific trainings and tests to pass in some instances before being allowed to wield a weapon on the field.
Have a look at the wide range of roles available and if you have any further questions, we'll be happy to talk to you in more detail - though do check out our Frequently Asked Questions page too.
You don't have to limit yourself to one role either, so why not try a few?
High impact and extremely physical, our Pikemen and women are not to be messed with!
Positions are earnt through the ranks and help command the troops in battle.
The bulk of the Scots Armie, musketeers are noisy and involved in hand-to-hand combat too.
Keeper of the Regiment's Colours (flag), the Ensign is paramount in keeping the troops together on the battlefield.
Marching and battles are thirsty work - especially in C17th layers of clothing. Our water carriers keep the troops hydrated and are on hand to help with any issues on the field.
A crucial element of any C17th Armie, the drummers beat out the Officer's orders and can be heard over the sound of battlefire.
For those for whom total authenticity really appeals, our Living History members embrace the traditional and historical lifestyle on our C17th encampment.
Where would a Scots Armie be without a piper? Ours lives in Germany and sadly can't make every muster. Could you stand in?
Also known as part of the Baggage Trayne, mostly women and children (some men) make up our civilian members. They might not go on the field but can still play an active role from the sidelines.
