 44th East Essex Regiment of Foot

One of Wellington’s Finest!

Non Combatants, the Camp and Camp Followers


A significant number of our membership – both men and women,  are those who perform vital and specialist roles within the Regiment. Some of them hold military rank, others do not, but are supporters and family members of the soldiers - wives, companions, children - all adding to the living history perspective and fulfilling practical roles.


The 44th have always extended a welcome to families, not just because we want then to share in our passion for the hobby, but because they too are a part of the Regiments’ history, providing  support, whether the Regiment was at home or overseas.
