Camp Followers have an important role to play in Hammond's Regiment
Whether gracing the Officer's table at a Living History event or keeping the troops watered on the battlefield, few are held in higher regard in the regiment. They all offer a valuable service and are all deeply respected by the fighting troops of the regiment. So much so, their representative the Camp & Baggage Master is afforded a place on both the Military & Executive Committees, to ensure that these members have a voice in all aspects of the regiment.
As a Camp Follower you will fall into one of three categories:
In each of these categories you will be able to choose where you feel most comfortable in terms of social status. Are you going to represent someone of noble birth, maybe someone from the merchant classes, will you be a trades person, or maybe a beggar. Each of these roles will need to be carefully researched, and we have lots of members in the regiment who are only too pleased to help you develop your seventeenth century persona. They will explain the pro's and con's of each role, and help you to develop your kit and equipment to suppoprt your role. You might even find that you can support an existing member in their role, as an assistant or apprentice - the opportunities are endless.
