No. Members join for pleasure, but a military structure is necessary for the authentic re-enactment of the battles. Discipline on the battlefield is essential for safety and to provide the public with a coherent display. Anyone joining the SK and the Regiment is required to obey the orders of the officers and the NCO’s, to attend drill pratice and to comply with the society’s requirements in such matters. Most members find that the small amount of discipline required does not restrict their enjoyment!
