About Us

Formed in 1993 our society is based principally in the counties of Devon and Somerset. We seek to bring to life some of the aspects of 18th century life with a focus on the area’s rich links and characters; primarily the legacy and exploits of John Graves Simcoe & Sir Edward Pellew.


The society has been commissioned to furnish portrayals for television programmes, provide information and articles for various published works and lecturers to institutions such as The National Army Museum and the Devon Society. Our list of clients and accreditations have included The National Trust, English Heritage, The History Channel, Dorling-Kindersley and the American Museum Bath.


We believe in providing an engaging experience to our clients, as well as edifying talks and static drill displays we endeavour to offer a tactile learning experience for those interested about our encampments for all ages. We look forward to seeing you at our events!
