News - First Practice Ever


First Practice
22 October, 2005
The Loyalist Fifes and Drums held their inaugural meeting on October 22, 2005 at U.E.L. Heritage Centre & Park in Adolphustown. The corps is operated by the U.E.L. Heritage Centre & Park, a non-profit preservation project of the United Empire Loyalists' Association of Canada, Bay of Quinte Branch.
The corps is made up of young people, with an interest in history and an enthusiasm for music. Regular practices are held monthly, and the group will perform throughout the warm weather months at re-enactments, community events and loyalist heritage functions. The aim of the corps is to promote Loyalist heritage and to foster the Adolphustown park as a tourist destination.

The corps will represent all Loyalist regiments that settled in the Eastern Ontario region. They will wear the uniform of the King’s Royal Yorkers, Buttler’s Rangers, Jessup’s Rangers and King’s Rangers. All of these regiments wore green coats faced red at one point during the Revolutionary War – and so we will wear red coats faced green as was customary for drummers to wear the reversed colours of their coats to distinguish themselves from the soldiers of the line.
