Join a unit/tell them that you are interested and they will provide you with loaner gear until you can afford your own kit.

If you want to just test it out, there are groups that let you join for a day (plus the equipment) for 30-40£.
I don't know of any Napoleonic ones that do that, this is most prominent in the Pike and Shoote era groups. Pretty sure if you search you will find something like this for a NW group aswell.

It sounds like they're not new members though, they're just tourists.
