Learn about the original regiment of 1645, and the things we do to support charities and good causes today by exploring this website.
Colonel Robert Hammond's Regiment of the Armie of Parliament was formed in the late 1980's as the Lord Generall's Lifeguard by Sealed Knot Lord-General Doug Turner. Our aim as a regiment within The Sealed Knot, is to portray Captain Charles O'Hara's Company (the third Captaine's Companie), of Colonel Robert Hammond's Regiment of Foote - an English Civil War company of the Parliamentarian New Model Army Regiment of the same name formed in 1645.
The original Hammond's saw their first battlefield action at the Battle of Naseby in June 1645, and went on to become veterans of many battles throughout the English Civil Wars. When we march out, we are re-enacting the 4th Regiment of Foote in the New Model Armie of 1645 - the forerunner of the British Army Redcoat Regiments we know and are so proud of today.
Colonel Robert Hammond's today offer precise drill, a great fighting spirit on the battlefield and a lively social side to our unit once the fighting is done. Hammond's truly are a friendly bunch! We get together throughout the year at battles (called musters); we also have lots of regimental events including Living History events, Anniversary Marches, Training Weekends, our own small musters and culminating with our spectacular regimental annual banquet.
Hammonds are also proud of their long friendship with the Memmingen Pikeniere from Memmingen, Bavaria, Germany. Our friendship is reinforced with visits to and from Germany, and we are honoured to be known as the Fahnlein Reinach - the 5th Company of the Memmingen Pikeniere. We have Hammond's in the Pikeniere, and we have members of the Pikeniere in Hammond's.
