King's 8th Light Coy.

The Light Company of the King's 8th Regiment of Foot has been established as a means through which members of the living history community can develop and share their knowledge, skills and research in a comfortable and welcoming environment. Reenactors, those taking part in this hobby, are welcome to participate and learn what they can from those around them, while contributing for the betterment of all.

Those new to the hobby who are interested in portraying a more progressive side of the Revolutionary War era, will be warmly welcomed and provided with the necessary guidance and resources to participate as full, knowledgeable members of the Light Coy.

Representing the Light Company of the 8th, this group will participate in a variety of events across North America and beyond, though emphasis will be placed on the Great Lakes expeditions and events, covering the historical actions of the Light Coy. and the 8th, at large.

The Company seeks to include those who are often left out of the opportunities available in living history and to share both our knowledge and skills with our peers and the community at large. The Light Company, will make use of its resources to explore new avenues of research and experimental archaeology, while also engaging in meaningful discussions, seminars, events and activities that will permit us to work with communities across North America, particularly Ontario, Quebec, the Maritime Provinces and the Eastern United States, doing so in both official languages of Canada.

While this is our focus, expect to see us as far off as Fort Ticonderoga, Kentucky, Mount Harmon in the East and Williamsburg to the South, as well as destinations further afield.


La Compagnie Légère du 8ème Régiment de pied a pour but d’établir un groupe ou les membres de la communauté de reconstitution historique peuvent développer et partager leurs connaissances et recherches dans un environnement accueillant. Les reconstitueurs, ceux qui pratiquent ce passe-temps, sont tous et toutes les bienvenus dans le régiment, sont invités à participer et à apprendre de ceux autour d’eux, tout en contribuant à l’amélioration de tous.

Ceux qui viennent de découvrir la reconstitution historique et qui sont intéressés à une représentation progressive de l’époque de la Guerre Révolutionnaire Américaine, seront chaleureusement reçus et fournis avec les ressources et connaissances nécessaires afin de participer comme membres complets et bien informés de la Compagnie Légère.

En représentant la Compagnie Légère du 8ème, le groupe participera à une variété d’évènements à-travers l’Amérique du Nord et même au-delà, bien que l’emphase du groupe sera les expéditions et les engagements dans les Grands Lacs. Si nous nous concentrons sur ce secteur, ne soyez toutefois pas surpris de nous trouver jusqu’au Kentucky, au fort Ticonderoga, à Mount Harmon à l’est et Williamsburg au sud et même plus loin.
