The Blews are a Regiment of Foote at aim to be a heavy role play regiment. Officers are adressed as "Sir" and NCOs by their rank. We strive to excel in our drill and skill, focusing on honing our men into true souldiers. The Officers of the Blews hold a pool of knowledge and skills whilst the NCOs walk down their own path of specialization to create a team able to train men in all forms of combat. Men are recruited from all across the community with a wide rage of different ability, all are welcome to the Blews so long are you keep to the rules. The Blews aim to become a well respected regiment and hope to join in the deluge community with a blast.

All men join the Blews as a Souldier. They must then complete an event in the pike block and musket block. They then get to chose if they want to become a Musketeer or a Pikeman. However there is a chance they could be drafted into an undermanned block so understand there is that chance when you join.

|History|


The Regiment was first raised in 1642 in the county of Somerset by Sir Thomas Lunsford, and was known as Sir Thomas Lunsford's Regiment of Foote. Sir Thomas was captured at the Battle of Edgehill and imprisoned until 1644.

His brother Colonel Henry Lunsford then took over command of the regiment until his death during the Siege of Bristol in July 1643.

Prince Rupert then assumed command as he had been impressed by the regiment's fighting abilities, and appointed John Russell as Lieutenant Colonel to the regiment. The regiment was part of the army taken north by Prince Rupert to Lancashire where it took part in the relief of Lathom House, the stormings of Bolton and Liverpool and then marched across the Pennines with Rupert to the relief of York. They then fought at the Battle of Marston Moor as part of the Forlorn Hope.

In May 1645 they assembled at Evesham as part of the King's Army and were involved in the storming of Leicester - this is where Rupert's men are referred to as Bluecoats in accounts of the fighting. Two weeks later the Bluecoats formed part of the reserve at the Battle of Naseby where the majority of the regiment were slain. The remnants eventually ended up as part of the garrison of Bristol and were disbanded by the King after Rupert surrendered the city.

Made up
When war broke our in the east of Europe Rupert could not help himself but to go and get himself involved. He went about England is disguise raising his regiment by summoning men to travel to Holland where the Royal Family had fled. The regiment reformed in Amsterdamn on Christmas day 1646 and traveled from there to Denmark where he was met in Copenhagen by Queen Christina of Sweden. There Rupert swore the Blews to the service of the Swedish Army with whom they fought with before returning to Holland upon summon of Charles II before he cross back into England in the restoration of the monarchy
