 +By May 1646 the regiment had earned notoriety for plundering. Parliamentarians claimed it consisted of Catholics, Irish, Scots, Dutch, French and English, mostly ex-Royalist officers, robbers, murderers, horse-thieves and former Royalists of the Newark horse. In June, after a countrywide outcry, the Scots began to disband the regiment.
