Q: Does the Regiment have a Structure?
Q: Why is your uniform all blue?
A: The coat colours of the Regiment are based upon that of Earl Rivers’ Regiment as it appeared at Wallingford Castle in the winter 1642/3. The contractor Thomas Bushell supplied suits to the number of 4,000, enough to clothe all the foote at Oxford and Abingdon at that time. Of these suits, 2,500 were all red and 1,500 all blue.
Q: How do I become an Officer?
A: It takes time, commitment and aptitude to become an Officer with the Sealed Knot. Every Officer started off as a common solider and through their ability have made their way up the ranks.
Of course you can hold office within your Regiment. These are non combatant Officers. Such as Adjutant, Treasurer, Public Relations, Recruitment. These are based on the persons skills (and how much time they have…)
If you want to become an Officer the only advice there is, is stick with it and see how you go.
Q: Do you meet up out of the main season?
Q: How do I find out if anyone lives near me?
A: That’s easy. Just contact the Regiment and we’ll let you know who’s in your area. Also handy if you need a lift to any muster. Most regiments will have one or two spaces left in someone’s car for you and your kit.
