We are a British Regiment that currently fields Five different companies: three Line, one Light infantry and one Cavalry company. This company system allows us to contribute a large presence as one whole regiment in our events, whilst maintaining smaller communities in which individual members can play their part and make a difference! Our ever present aim is to maintain a regiment that provides a professional but enjoyable Napoleonic Wars experience for all kinds of players, whether they be brand-new or seasoned players. We partake and host a broad range of event kinds, from competitive tournaments to role-play orientated events - we therefore firmly believe that all types of NW players will find something they personally enjoy within our ranks!
We have accepted and still continue to accept members of all nationalities and have prided ourselves in having one of the most diverse roster of different nationalities in the community, with only the requirements that you speak and understand English to an intermediate degree and the ability to meet and attend our events.
We pride ourselves in being one of the most professional and organised regiments in the community, we carefully keep track of our members and maintain an up to date regiment roster; Any inactive players among our ranks are removed from the regiment or moved to reserves within a month, so our roster always features active members.Welcoming New, Experienced, Relaxed or Competitive players - Enlist with the Duke of Wellingtons Own Today!

(Victoria Cross)Private Henry TANDEY: The Duke of Wellington’s (West Riding) Regiment - The First World War
The 33rd is as ever, openly Recruiting! We attend multiple events every week; four of which we run ourselves with no commitment beyond one event a week required to stay on our Roster. We maintain four active companies - two of which are Line with Lights and Cavalry to support, with 133 members on the strength as of October 2019; This company system allows us to contribute a large presence as one whole regiment in our events, whilst maintaining smaller communities in which individual members can play their part and make a difference!
September has been an exceptionally busy month for the 33rd, seeing the continuation of CCL for the cavalry and regrettably being knocked out of NWBC at the Semi's!! On the bright side it was a fantastic end to the competition with us finishing on high, being extremely close towards the end against worthy opponents; we wish the 'Old Guard' the best of luck as they face 'The Good the Bad and Timed-out' in the final. Our Cavalry continue to battle through CCL in league 2, maintaining a roughly even ratio of wins to losses as they soon come to the end - best of luck to our 'Unfortunate Gentleman' on their final match. There has also been great anticipation amongst the regiment's membership for the 'rebirth' (...) of the famed Man Vs Bots public server, which is (as of last week) alive and kicking! Do visit the server if you remember it fondly; all of the old scripts and many of the old maps are back on there, so do remind yourself of what a fantastic pub server it is to play between events.
Have a good October all... Long Live the King and his 33rd Regiment!
