The “Blew Regiment of the Cittie of London Trayned Bandes” was a militia regiment of about 1200 musketeers and 800 pikemen drawn from the citizens of the capitol. At the time England had no standing army so, in times of war and strife, locally trained volunteers were virtually all that was available. Upon the outbreak of war London declared for Parliament and the regiment fought in most of the notable battles of the conflict. Our flagbearer holds the standard of the 5th Captain of the Regiment.
