Structure of the 93rd SHRoFLHU is based on that of a British Regiment. Rank and promotions follow guidelines based on proven precepts of similar organizations around the world. Holding rank is based on a specific job to be done rather than pomp. Just as it is unauthentic for all to wear stripes or epaulettes, it is also just as inaccurate for everyone to be Other Ranks (enlisted).
As even the foe Napoleon said, "It is very difficult for a nation to create an army when it has not already a body of officers and N.C.O.s to serve as a nucleus, and a system of military organisation."
Our Commanding Officer holds the rank of "Colonel" due to years of work not only in the 93rd (he founded the Unit as a private!) but also on an international basis within the Napoleonic Association, Crown Forces North America, & the Worldwide Highland Brigade. Said "rank" was a promotion given by those in higher authority in these organizations, rather than any personal whim of "what to wear".(Click here for promotion announcement.)
Likewise, other 93rd officers and NCO's have earned their commission or stripes through hard work & participation, along with the Unit's need of certain jobs in overseeing a certain number of men. All medals and awards in the 93rd SHRoFLHU must also be "earned" by the individual members.
A Federally registered 501 (c) (3) non-profit historical organization, the Unit is an all volunteer organization & all members may have input into the Unit though final decisions come from HQ. FUN is the ultimate goal of any hobby.
The Unit strives for as accurate & authentic a portrayal as possible. Required uniform materials, Regimental buttons & badges are available. The NEW RECRUIT PACKET contains Dress Regulations, list of supply sources, construction methods, Drill Manual, brief history, and The General And Standing Orders of the Unit. Supplemental information is published online or by email. Temporary exceptions to gear are permitted for a brief period to ease the burden on a new member; for example, a Charleville musket might be allowed until a Brown Bess is obtained.
Soldiers are most needed. Accurate portrayals of other types are also sought: Surgeons, Chaplain, Musicians (Drummers & Pipers especially), Soldiers' Wives & other such civilian followers of the camp.
"When you were told to 'put your backside into it', private, that was not what the sergeant meant!"
A bit of father/son repair work during the 1997 Texas Scottish Festival and Highland Games.
The Unit often participates at various Scottish Festivals and Highland Games, setting up displays and conducting demonstrations and seminars to educate the public on the 93rd & life as a British Highland soldier in the 19th century.
