-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 ​the Pumpworthy'​s regiment were completely washed out and surrendered in March 1645. +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.
