Service History

1644

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

Riddell’s men were probably not formally regimented; Furgol labels them a ‘retinue’. They likely either disbanded or followed Riddell into Cranstoun’s foot.
