Minden News #50: Cavalry Applications and 'Order 51'!
« on: April 18, 2021, 04:58:17 pm »


Issue #50: "Strike upwards, if you strike at the stars."





Increasing tension between 51st Factions
In the past few weeks there has been an unprecedented increase in violence and rhetoric between the Cool Union of Classy Kingsmen (self styled as the CUCKs), and the self proclaimed Fusilier Council. More recently the Grenadier Company has become embroiled in the conflict. In the past few days, an incident occurred where Grenadier Company members marched on the Classy Union's fort, aptly named "CUCK Hold", while the CUCKs were holding an internal ceremony. What unfolded next resulted in the death and injury of many 51st members on both sides of the divide.

However, an exclusive eyewitness who has asked to remain anonymous, has told the Minden News:
"There was a tense moment, followed by a shot. The CUCKs shot first lmao ... After that, the Grenadiers slaughtered everyone in the hold including yours truly."

I confronted Acting Lord Chancellor of the CUCKs Maverick about this allegation and responded with:
"In my eyes William at the time acted without orders. They walked into the fort and made their aggressions. I believe, with or without action from the CUCKS, it would have resulted in a massacre. Their "Order 51" shows its was planned from the start."

A full video recording of how the events unfolded can be seen at the link below.

As a strictly unbiased regimental publication, we cannot comment on the developing situation with the parties involved. We condemn the recent violent unrest within the regiment.

Holdfast Artillery League Champions!
Huge congratulations are in order for our Artillery Company!

Recently our Artillery Company successfully defended their title as champions in the latest iteration of the Holdfast Artillery League. The competition was hard fought and culminated with our lads facing off in the final against the 63e. However, our Artillerymen and Sappers evidently brought their A-game because the outcome was a resounding clean sweep, with a final score of 3-0. This performance was reflected in the rest of the tournament too. The artillery lads performed exceptionally well from start to finish, winning most of their matches with no rounds lost!

You can see the full results by having a look at the Challonge scoresheet here.

Cavalry Applications - OPEN!
Do you like cool uniforms, horses, and sabres? Maybe even all of the above? Do you also hold the rank of Regular or higher?
Well, put on your spurs and count yourself lucky because as announced on Saturday, applications for Cavalry Company are open once again! As our newest company, Cavalry has been working hard to become a more cohesive unit, this is no easy task for a new group but they've done an amazing job so far and have proved their worth on many occasions during tournaments and events.

If you would like to be part of Cavalry Company you can check out the #cavalry-applications channel on Discord!

XMG EU 3v3 Tournament Results
The congratulations train doesn't stop here, three 51st members formed a team for the recent XMG EU 3v3 Tournament.
The team in question, named Choke Company, was made up of members Acez, RickDickBang, and Dr. Gendalf. They sailed smoothly to victory and have been crowned overall winners. As readers will know, competitive melee can be tough but the three members involved are big names in the melee community. Huge well done on their win!

The full bracket can be seen on Challonge here.

Recent NCO Promotions
Since the last edition of Minden News, readers may have noticed some new NCOs hanging around in events and on TeamSpeak.
Notably, our newest batch of Lance Corporals have passed the Trial NCO stage and have been accepted into the ranks as fully fledged NCOs. Behind the scenes, these NCOs work hard to keep the regiment ticking over and are tasked with completing many of the administration tasks that are required for things to run smoothly. Keep up the good work!

Below is a list of all the recent NCO promotions - congratulations to you all, promotions well deserved!

Grenadier Uniform / Competitive Melee
A little bird told me that a new 51st Grenadier uniform is in the pipeline. VectorScope and the team have put out some fantastic uniforms in the past for the 51st so I'm sure readers are as excited as me for the upcoming release. So, keep your eyes peeled and your ear to the ground for any updates!

Word on the street is that after previous competitive melee match performances, Grenadier Company's competitive team is undergoing some big changes. As I've previously mentioned, the competitive melee scene can be a difficult ride but we have some talented members within the regiment. We wish the boys all the best and I believe they will succeed! "No shitters!"

"Until, on Vinegar Hill, the final conclave.
Terraced thousands died, shaking scythes at cannon.
The hillside blushed, soaked in our broken wave.
They buried us without shroud or coffin
And in August the barley grew up out of the grave. "
