Regiments Represented

At Fort George, we have three British & Canadian Regts, all of them fought in the Battle which took place in May of 1813.
There is the 49th Regt. of Foot, Beneral Brock’s Own, the King’s 8th Regt, The King’s Men (both of these are British) and the Royal Nfld. Regt. of Fencible Infantry (a Canadian Regt).

The American Regt is represented the 6th U.S. Regt.
Depending on where your Group resides, usually determines what Regt you will be assigned to and this is done by the Scout Brigade Admin. Dept., in consultation with the Regimental Commanders.

A Company (Coy) consists of at least 30 Scouts and their leaders. Each Coy has a Captain (usually the Scoutmaster), a Lieutenant, two Ensigns and a Sergeant, with two Corporals and two Chosenmen.
