POACHER PROFILE

Sjt. Lee

Robert "Bobby" Lee
Grenadier Company
Serjeant
Joined: 2010

Why did you join?
Members of Lee Co'y (Rob, PVT Grenadier Tim, and PVT Light Infantry Matt) were fans of the 10th Regiment as early as 2001, when we drove to Lexington at dawn on Patriot's Day to see the Battle at Lexington Green. Also, Tower Park, Battle Road and parades. Matt joined as a musician in 2009, Tim joined the Light Infantry later that year. Next, since we were all going to drill, events and parades together, I joined!

Why did you stay in the Regiment?
It's fun! There is multi-generational fellowship, camaraderie, espirit de corps; we all work together to provide the public with authentic, living history at re-enactments, tactical demonstrations, school visits and parades; I love history and learning more about 18th Century British military life.

What do you do in your real life?
I am the Facilities Manager, Event Coordinator and sometimes Music Teacher at Fayerweather Street School, Cambridge, MA.

What are your interests outside of the Regiment
I am a sax player in a couple of local bands and enjoy getting outdoors as much as possible.

 

 

Camp Life CapDuring the 1770's, a typical British Infantry Regiment consisted of the Field and Staff Officers and 10 companies, composed of three different types of soldiers: eight Battalion or "Hat" Companies, one Company of Grenadiers, and one Company of Light Infantry. Each of these companies had a specific role in the regiment and were typically manned as follows:





Parade MacaroniField and Staff Officers:
Lieutenant Colonel (the Officer Commanding), Major (Second in Command), Adjutant, Quartermaster, Chaplain, Surgeon and Sugeon's Mate.

Grenadier Company (49 Officers and men):
Captain, 2 Lieutenants, 2 Serjeants, 3 Corporals, 1 Drummer, 2 Fifers, 38 Private Soldiers.

Light Infantry Company (47 Officers and men):
Captain, 2 Lieutenants, 2 Serjeants, 3 Corporals, 1 Drummer, 38 Private Soldiers.

Eight Battalion Companies (47 Officers and men each):
Captain, 2 Lieutenants, 2 Serjeants, 3 Corporals, 1 Drummer, 38 Private Soldiers.


Thus, a Regiment at "full-strength" consisted of approximately 480 Officers, NCOs and Private Soldiers.

Currently, the Recreated 10th Foot consists of three companies of soldiers: a Company of Grenadiers and a Company of Light Infantry -- these were the companies that took part in the march to Concord in the early morning hours of April 19th, 1775 -- and a newly reformed Colonel's (Battalion) Company. The Regiment also boasts a Company of Music and Corps of Civilian Volunteers. Follow the links below to find out more about the role each played in an 18th Century British Regiment.

In addition, as the Tenth Regiment is an IRS recognized 501(c)3 public charity incorporated under the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, we are guided by a Board of Directors, which consists of members both from within and outside of the Regiment.
