Service History

1644

  • Raised in Buchan, Aberdeenshire
  • September: Battle of Aberdeen

Notes

A history of the unit is shown in Edward M. Furgol’s A Regimental History of the Covenanting Armies 1639-1651 Edinburgh, 1990. ISBN 0 85976 194 0

Probably not formally regimented, Furgol labels them a 'retinue'; they appear to have disbanded fairly quickly after the battle of Aberdeen.
