About us

We are a UK-based Living History Group portraying the 52nd Regiment of Foot ‘The Oxfordshire Light Infantry’ 1807 – 1815. We portray the life of the regiment during the turbulent years of the Napoleonic Wars, and participate in events throughout the UK and abroad. 

Founded in 2022 by a group of passionate Living Historians, with backgrounds ranging from the American Revolutionary War to World War One, who wanted to bring to life the story of the 52nd, Sir John Moore’s original ‘Light Bobs’. 

We aim to portray all aspects of life in the Regiment, not just the ones that hold a military rank. Wives, followers, and traders, all add to the living history perspective of the camp life. They provide support for the Regiment at home or overseas.
