 =====Notes===== =====Notes=====
 +Raised in 1642 by Colonel Dummy Template, the regiment remained in garrison at Nether-Piddle until their Colonel was diagnosed with agrophobia by a wandering Italian vacuum cleaner salesman and summarily sacked. Hoppington-Poppington led the regiment to the siege of Puddleton in 1644, but was so discommoded by the Puddletonians'​ defence that he fled the country. Lord Pumpworthy claimed the regiment for his own, leading them on the notorious River Piddle campaign of 1644. After over-wintering at Piddletrenthide,​ Pumpworthy'​s regiment were completely washed out and surrendered in March 1645. 
 +=====Coats, Flags and Equipment=====
 +Template'​s regiment wore scruffy old coats and carried a transparent flag with a rude design, illustrated above ((Stew Appley-Summer. Flags and uniforms of the Silly Civil War; Spitoon Press 1832)).

-The regiment served with Lord Hopton'​s army in the Cheriton campaign, likely commanded by Lt Col Edward Hopton when Apsley was absent in ExeterSubsequently they were members of Astley's brigade of the Oxford Army during the campaign of 1644. Meanwhile it appears that some of the regiment remained with Apsley in the West Country. In 1645 Sir Edward Hopton was promoted to colonel of the Oxford Army unit, leding them at Leicester and Naseby, where the regiment was captured and disbanded, along with the majority of the Oxford Army foot.  +=====Contemporary References=====
