Introduction


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!

The Light Company  -  active service

The Light Company is a melee focused company, made up of not only 33rd veterans but also up and coming members looking to fight at a more competitive level. During events the Light company acts as a guarilla force, being able to take any enemy regiment one on one, whether it be a line, cav, or light force often utilising ambush tactics. The Lights are the most "Free" in terms of formation and rules of any company/class, They have no need to walk in line but instead can spread out to 5 man spaces and can take cover behind trees and rocks. Due to the flexibility required in game and being a limited number company, activity and skill are equally important when considering to apply to the Light company.

The Cavalry Company  -  active service

The Cavalry Company is comprised of light cavalry, is versatile and acts as a support group during events. Due to our unique ability to move across the battle in a short space of time we are able to act as scouts to inform our fellow companies of potential threats and create ambushes, use hit and run tactics to disrupt and disorganize the enemy and use brute force engagements to remove threats and pin the enemy down. Our formations and method of fighting allow members to use their own initiative and skills whilst simultaneously working with fellow company members and remaining as one unit. Similarly to the Lights we are a limited number company so close teamwork, discipline and commitment are must have attributes.

No.2 Centre  -  active service

The No.2 centre company "The Dukes Own" is one of the line companies of the 33rd and is also presently the default company, in to which most new members enlist - as such many new faces come and go from within their ranks. The majority of its members however represent a solid core of active players, familiar to each other and ranked Fusilier or above. The company upholds the core values of the regiment to a high standard, setting an example to the new members who enter the community of the regiment. Trainings and warm-ups are focused appropriately depending on the coming event by a highly experienced set of staff; these may consist of anything from basic melee techniques and groupfighting do's and dont's, to company drill in single or even double rank. You will find yourself welcome within the ranks of No.2 Company if you are mature, disciplined and have a good standard of melee  - or are willing to learn!


"The Dukes Own"

CO's: 3
NCO's: 1
Enlisted: 38
Recruits: 9



No.3 Centre Company  -  active service

The 33rd's No.3 Company "The KGL" joined the battalion in October 2017 and are commanded by Captain Blaze. Their numbers have grown steadily since then and they have developed into a solid line company of the 33rd, able to act alone or in support of other companies. The companies single ranked drill is exemplary and their ability to square up to an enemy line 1 on 1 and fire effectively is well practiced! Its members have close ties, built up from experiences in prior NW regiments; during events the company teamspeak is relaxed and light-hearted banter encouraged but kept balanced with a disciplined approach, when called for by its staff.

For those not in the know, I've hosted the 33rd fse thread for while throughout different iterations of the regiment command. On behalf of whoever it was that was leading it at that time. Even though I technically did not directly own the right to the regiment numbering.

Spoons has taken Colonelcy of the regiment over St3fan for while and has been leading it successfully thus I saw fit to let him host the thread to do whatever he wants with it.
