Blew Regiment LTB
elcome to the official website of the Blew Regiment LTB.
The Blew Regiment is part of the
Sealed Knot Society, which was formed to recreate the desperate times of the English Civil Wars. This site contains information about us,
more general information about the history of the English Civil War,
and information our members should find useful, as well
as numerous photographs of the regiment and events we've been involved with.
Our regiment is part of the Parliament Army as was it historical predecessor, and we are proud of our attempt to present as nearly as possible, something of the appearance of an actual Infantry Regiment of the period 1640 / 1650.
One of the main activities of the Sealed Knot Society is its "Musters" throughout the summer months. A muster is a weekend where all the Regiments, which make up the Society come together and form into their respective armies, Parliamentarian and Royalist with cavalry and artillery, refight the pitched battles of the era. Aside from the battles there are also living history camps, which aim to recreate as accurately as possible the every day life of the period.
The Regiments camp for free at the musters which can be anywhere from Cornwall to Scotland. The Regiment is made up of people of all ages and from all walks of life; we have whole families, and many single members all of whom enjoy coming away for the weekend and spending time together with a common aim, to have a fun packed weekend.
Some come for a drink and a laugh and some because of the history. But many because there is nothing quite like escaping reality and having a good time with friends.
There are so many roles within the Regiment that any one can fit in and fill at home, all we ask of you is that you enjoy yourself.
