[NA/EU] 1st Black Brunswickers Infantrie Battalion *2yrs Old*
« on: February 06, 2017, 08:36:27 am »





We the Black Brunswicker Infantrie , look forward to playing alongside many of the new regiments and communities in this new upcoming game. And also enjoying meeting many of you on the battlefield. We will be operating at release and look forward to develop! Currently we hail from a North and South regiment, called the 5th Georgia Volunteer specifically Company A , "Clinch Rifles". Along with our bodies fit for duty, we bring our standards and history of our respectable regiment.  We very much look forward to working with the community of Holdfast and we shall see you on the battlefield!
History & Engagements

When organized for British service, the corps was renamed the Brunswick Oels Jäger and Brunswick Oels Hussar Regiments. Prussians represented a large part of the original officer corps, while the enlisted men were motivated by German patriotism. However, once the Oels entered English service, they were cut off from their natural recruiting grounds. Compelled to enlist men from the prisoner of war camps to fill up the ranks, the quality of soldiers in the Oels decreased. Worse, the King's German Legion obtained the best of the German recruits, leaving the Oels with the less desirable ones. In addition to Germans, the Oels recruited Poles, Swiss, Danes, Dutch, and Croats. Charles Oman, the Peninsular War historian, calls the Oels a "motley crew, much given to desertion" and records one occasion where ten men were caught deserting in a body. Of these, four were shot and the rest flogged.

Nevertheless, the Brunswick Oels Jägers gave a good account of themselves during the war. The regiment — really a single battalion—arrived in Portugal in early 1811. The Duke of Wellington distributed one company to the 4th Division and two companies to the 5th Division as skirmishers, while the remaining nine companies served in the newly formed 7th Division. The Oels remained in this organization until the end of the war in April 1814. During this period, the Oels served in most of the major battles including Fuentes de Onoro, Salamanca, Vitoria, the Pyrenees, Nivelle, the Nive, and Orthez.

Following Napoleon's disastrous invasion of Russia in 1812, and his subsequent retreat back into France, Frederick William was able to return to Brunswick in 1813 to reclaim his title. He also took the opportunity to replenish the ranks of his Black Brunswickers. Upon Napoleon's escape from Elba in 1815 he once more placed himself under the Duke of Wellington's command and joined the allied forces of the Seventh Coalition in Belgium. The "Brunswick Corps", as it is called in the order of battle for the Waterloo Campaign, formed up as a discrete division in the allied reserve. Its strength is given as 5376 men, composed of eight infantry battalions; one Advance Guard or Avantgarde, one Life Guard or Leib-Bataillon, three Light and three Line Battalions. They were supported by both a horse and foot artillery battery of eight guns each. Also included were a regiment of Brunswicker Hussars and a single squadron of Uhlans were often attached to the allied cavalry corps.

Expectations and Ideals

We expect certain characteristics and conduct from recruits when they join. Of course nobody wants to be in a group full of trolls, so we require members to conduct themselves in a manner that creates a fun and accepting environment for members of the Company. People with great leadership skills are always welcomed and we encourage members to come forward with them. As our company grows, so does the need for responsible, mature leaders. Although we have a starting lineup of Commissioned and Noncommissioned Officers, we still need members who are capable of leading both during and away from events. We also require of all our members a level of maturity, regardless of age. While this is a prerequisite for an Officer, it is also something enlisted men must exhibit as well. This means racist topics and comments will not be permitted.along with bothering or slandering other Companies and communities within Holdfast, along with the aforementioned trolling. These prerequisites will be maintained and upheld to fit our standards. and provide a fun and welcoming environment for all!
