Alan Breck's Prestonpans Volunteer Regiment



The official redcoat unit of the Alan Breck's Regiment is The Edinburgh City Guard. These men were trained and equipped the same as line infantry, so our soldiers are just as at home in the firing line as patrolling the closes of the capital!

At our events you might also meet Barbara, our magnificent "galloper" cannon. Our barrel is deactivated to allow you to get a closer look! Just like the cannons at the Battle of Prestonpans, Barbara is usually left in the care of our sailor from HMS Fox.
