Who was Sir Marmaduke Rawdon and what part did he play in the English Civil War?
Yes, indeed he was a real man and yes indeed he did comand a regiment during the War.
Sadly, our former comander did pass away but what about our fantastic current C/O?
“All your costume and kit must have cost a lot of money” This is one of the most frequent questions that we hear when it comes to those interested in joining Rawdon’s and one of the main assumptions that can stop people joining the fun!
If you still need more convincing to join Rawdon's and get involved in all the fun, then take a look at our gallery which is stuffed full of fantasitc photos from events past and present.
