First of all welcome and thank you for taking a look at our regimental thread! We formed a regiment in order to become
friends and train ourselves to be a strong core of melee fighters. Anyone who wants to become a battle hardened veteran will get special melee
courses. The 88th is also a friendly regiment and open to anyone. We don't allow harmful political talk, if you can keep it at a certain limit that's
enjoyable for everyone. We won't allow racism of any kind. EVERYONE is welcome and should be individually respected. A rank structure is made
for historical accuracy. This does not mean Recruits are less valuable than NCO's for example. Everyone who is part of our community will be
respected and other opinions will be heard and taken seriously. We do have an age limit of 13+. If you want to have a look for yourself first, and
you are not sure you are wanting to join us, then you are always welcome to jump on our Teamspeak and play with our members. We welcome
everyone with open arms, even those who don't want to join our regiment but just hang out on Teamspeak with our people.


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

Our Goals in Holdfast

***
The 88th will mainly focus on participating in weekly-based trainings, linebattles and sieges. The Regiment will mainly focus on improving their shooting and melee to compete in future 1v1s and 2v2s against other regiments, training will also be set throughout the week to get our members to their peak performance in the game. On the other hand, we will be jumping onto public servers to have a laugh and to enjoy ourselves, other than that we will not only go as line infantry but also role-play as other units such as light infantry or artillery. We want to accomplish in Holdfast to become a fun mature regiment to keep the entertainment at its highest peak!

Recruit (Recruit) Guidebook

***
The individuals of the regiment are constantly cheerful when a new member joins in. We will willingly welcome all those who show interest by joining the regiment. Once joined the regiment, Recruits are expected to show great dedication and motivation towards the regiment as well as improving their melee and shooting in-game. If you are active and attend 2 bootcamps within the 2 weeks, it will award you a promotion to the rank of Private and from there, you will slowly but surely progress through the ranks will melee skills and discipline. If you, however, encounter a problem within the regiment or your not to sure about something, then do please contact one of the Commanding Officers or a Non-Commissioned Officer as they will always be available at your disposal and would really want to help.

Historical Overview - 88th Regiment of Foot "Connaught Rangers"

***

The regiment was raised in Connaught by John Thomas de Burgh, 13th Earl of Clanricard as the 88th Regiment of Foot (Connaught Rangers), in response to the threat posed by the French Revolution, on 25 September 1793. The regiment was sent to join the Duke of York's army in the Netherlands in summer 1794 as part of the unsuccessful defence of that country against the Republican French during the Flanders Campaign. The regiment embarked for the West Indies in autumn 1795 and, after a difficult voyage, two companies took part in the capture of Grenada and the siege of Saint Lucia before returning to England in summer 1796. The regiment then embarked for India in January 1799 and arrived in Bombay in June 1800. The regiment sailed from India for Egypt in December 1800 for service in the Egyptian Campaign reaching Cairo on the day that the French troops surrendered. It arrived back in England in May 1803. A second battalion was raised in Dumfries in November 1805. The 1st Battalion sailed from Falmouth for the Cape of Good Hope in November 1806. The battalion sailed for South America in April 1807 and took part in the disastrous expedition under Sir Home Popham: it saw action in the unsuccessful attack on Buenos Aires in July 1807. Two companies were ordered to remove the flints from their muskets before they went into action which effectively rendered them defenceless. After a lengthy fight the battalion surrendered. Captain William Parker-Carroll remained in Río de la Plata and was well-treated by the Spanish troops. The rest of the battalion, once released, embarked for home and arrived at Portsmouth in November 1807.


***

The 1st Battalion landed in Portugal in March 1809 for service in the Peninsular War. It formed part of the Portuguese forces commanded by General William Beresford, 1st Viscount Beresford tasked with removing Marshal Jean-de-Dieu Soult from Oporto. It held firm at the top of Medellin hill at the Battle of Talavera in July 1809. Then, at the Battle of Bussaco in September 1810, the battalion, under the command of Lieutenant-Colonel John Wallace, together with a detachment of the 45th Regiment of Foot, made a bayonet charge which sent the French troops reeling. Sir Arthur Wellesley, arriving at the scene, said, Wallace, I never saw a more gallant charge than that just now made by your regiment.


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   


Continuation of History about the 88th

The 1st Battalion then retreated, with the rest of Wellesley's army, to the Lines of Torres Vedras. The battalion, still under the command of Lieutenant-Colonel Wallace made another bayonet charge at the Battle of Fuentes de Oñoro in May 1811 and drove the French Army from the village. It went on to fight at the Siege of Ciudad Rodrigo in January 1812 and scaled the walls of the fortress at the Siege of Badajoz in April 1812. At the Battle of Salamanca in July 1812 the battalion was at the centre of the brigade as it advanced and routed the French troops. At Salamanca the battalion captured an old Moorish standard adorned with crescents and bells: the standard, more correctly known as a Turkish crescent, became known in the regiment as the "Jingling Johnny". The 1st Battalion also took part in the Siege of Burgos in September 1812 and the Battle of Vitoria in June 1813. It then pursued the French Army into France and fought at the Battle of the Pyrenees in July 1813, the Battle of Nivelle in November 1813 and the Battle of the Nive in December 1813 as well as the Battle of Orthez in February 1814 and the Battle of Toulouse in April 1814. It then embarked for North America in June 1814 for service in the War of 1812. It arrived too late for the Battle of Plattsburgh in September 1814, the last engagement of the war, and so was dispatched to Ostend in May 1815 arriving there in July 1815. It arrived home in spring 1817. Meanwhile, the 2nd Battalion embarked for Lisbon in summer 1809 for service in the Peninsular War:its only engagement was the Battle of Sabugal in April 1811 before most of it was absorbed by the 1st Battalion in July 1811. One cadre, which returned to the UK, was expanded to battalion strength and was deployed to Ireland before being disbanded in January 1816.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            


           
Organisation of the Regiment
***
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              
The Regiment will consist of Line Infantry for the time being. In Regimental linebattles, however, we will work with formations and try to re-enact historical line formations. These formations require high discipline and knowledge of the game and the commands. One example of this is a double firing column with line infantry and officers standing behind them. If we come to use various other units we'll be using light infantry as a flanking force with devastating firepower. We will try to bring historical 1800s fighting as realistic as possible to the battlefield in Holdfast. The Regiment will also use a wide variety of historical British military ranks. These ranks will be shown in-game, but they will be in the Teamspeak as well. Reaching higher ranks in the Enlisted section requires you to be skilful and very loyal.

Hierarchy explanation & attached duties

***
Here you can see which duties and tasks are attached to every rank. We want to show that EVERY member is important within the regiment and should be respected equally as the CO's and NCO's. Just because there is a rank displayed in front of your name doesn't mean you are just a puppet. Personal opinions are valued and will always be considered as feedback to improve our social group. Different duties and tasks are handed out so every member can have his contribution towards the regiment.

Commissioned Officers

Colonel: The colonel is the highest in command. He has the final say and will command the regiment.
Lieutenant Colonel: The LtCol is the second in command. He is one of the most trusted officers chosen by the colonel himself and leads the regiment when the Colonel cannot make it.

Musicians, Sappers, & Medals

***
Within the regiment we have musicians. They are here to make sure the men have enough motivation and morale. There are two musicians within the regiment, one drummer and one flute player. Next to the musicians we have Sappers. they makes special earthworks and defences to keep the regiment covered. Maximum 2 sappers depending on the size of the regiment. The Colour Serjeant is the one who defends the banner. His melee skills must be up to date to defend the banner at all costs. There can be only 1 Colour Serjeant the regiment. We also use Medals. They are here to keep the men motivated to stay in the regiment and earn bonus points, so their hard work is not in vain. These can be melee medals, shooting medals and more.

Medals

Good luck Duke, fgt. Hopefully better than whatever regiment we had back in like 2012 when we were like 13.

Edit: Your Sjt-Maj icon looks rather ravaged, use that one if you want.
