Alan Breck's Prestonpans Volunteer Regiment


Welcome to 1745...

The Prince has landed... The Rising has begun.


Charles Edward Stuart has come to claim the throne of his ancestors, raising the standard of rebellion against the government of George II.


The Jacobites: hardy, determined, untested.

The Redcoats: professional, trained, indignant.


Who will win the hearts of the people? Who will secure the throne?

Who will YOU support?






King James V is dead and an infant queen wears the Crown of Scotland;

the English want her hand in marriage to bring a union of the thrones;

and the forces of the Reformation are strengthening in both kingdoms.


The fiery cross goes out: war is coming to Scotland.


Pick up your pikes and bills. Join the Lothian Levy.
