These Grenadiers are part of the Pulteney's Regiment (13th Foot) re-enactment group. The group recreates the look of soldiers in King George II's army in the period 1739 to 1765 but specialises in the Jacobite Rebellion. The Grenadiers were the assault troops of the period and carried early types of grenades, as shown. The grenades were cast-iron balls filled with gunpowder and lit with a quick-burning fuse.
