Calendar of Events
The 7th of 1775 looked quite different when it was rebuilt in 1777
The slow parade ground movements where abandoned in the field where rapid movement and accurate fire won the day.
At times, firing was conducted by files. Men were paired up, and would cover each other as they fired, loaded, and moved.
The 7th, like the majority of the British Army, became quite adept at woods fighting early in the war.
Roll was typically taken during the first formation of the day.
Inspections were frequent. They ensured the clothing and equipment were functional, and that the men were not acquiring items unlawfully.
