Female Roles in the unit.
This page has been designed to show the roles that can be played by females
wishing to take part in re enactment events. There are occasions when event
organisers state that the practice of females in male roles can not be
accommodated due to inaccurate historical portrayal. The roles are varied and
can be developed to ensure members can still enjoy the living history aspect of
the hobby if not allowed to portray a male role at an event.

Research led to the intoduction of a cart for the Caniiniere.
