The Brecknock (Brecon) Trained Bands of 1638 consisted of 300 men armed with 180 muskets and 120 corslets (body armour, signifying pikemen). They also mustered 30 horse.

By 1651 the militias of the South Welsh counties appear to have been combined, with the South Wales militia being ordered to rendezvous at Gloucester to hold the city during the Worcester campaign.
