The History and Our Origins

The Company of Pikemen and Musketeers was formed in 1925 to take part in the first Royal Tournament at the Royal Agricultural Hall.

The company’s first ‘outing’ was deemed to be such a success that the demonstration team was kept together and developed and has been providing colour and pageantry at events in the City of London and elsewhere ever since...learn more about our history and origins

Some include, a colourful ‘carpet guard’ at your reception or dinner, Guards of Honour or escorts for important members of your organisation or visitors to your event, demonstrations of 17th century pike and musket drills, trooping or lodging the colour.
