Issue #47: "A Napoleonic Wallpaper For You In 2021"





Napoleonic Era Artwork Ready!

The 51st Regiment of Foot commissioned a Napoleonic era digital painting from artist Gabriel Tan. The artwork was crowdfunded entirely by 51st members, both through individual contributions and our Patreon. We think the result is absolutely fantastic, which depicts a valiant 51st line led by an officer volleying the French. Thank you to all contributors and our Patrons. The artwork will be used by the regiment for different purposes, such as the background and header of the website, Discord invites, and other promotional material. You can contact Captain Mark on Discord to receive a 4K version of the artwork. Corporal VectorScope, who created our uniforms, will touch up the final version of the artwork which will soon hang on many walls.

Acez Floated Like a Butterfly, Stung Like a Bee

On December 18, our members did not fight in melee arenas or in all-charge during a linebattle. Instead, boxing rings were set up and we all spilled blood and smelled like pigs, during the first Boxing Night of the 51st Regiment of Foot. Lance Corporal Acez emerged as the last man standing in the ring and won the tournament. Glory to our melee sweat, as apparently he does not even need a bayonet to kill enemies!

Up and coming melee player and perhaps future boxing champion Grenadier CableFre finished the tournament in second place. Third place went to the most active member of our regiment, who makes the enlisted steady in the lines with his deep voice and huge experience: Sergeant Major Unc0nn3ct3d.

Hats off to Corporal VectorScope for organizing the event as smoothly as the World Heavyweight Boxing Championship Match.

Lance Corporal Average Earns a Cross of Valor

On Thursday, January 14th, 2021, Lance Corporal Average showed an exceptional performance in the line battle and was awarded a Cross of Valor, Third Class. He defeated five enemy combatants as the last man standing. He faced extremely skilled melee players in a highly tense all charge situation. He managed to maintain his composure and slew four enemies before emerging on top against the final enemy in a nail-biting duel. He was even praised by our commander-in-chief Colonel Stalker during the parade, where he was awarded the Cross of Valor.

Despite being a member of the artillery company, he was also part of the last regimental groupfighting roster. Previous recipients of the Cross of Valor can be found in the #medal-recipients channel on Discord. We offer our congratulations to Average and thank him for his excellent melee performance.

Cavalry Tournament Hosted by 51st is Starting

Our newest company, the cavalry company, has been very active in recent months and has been steadily working on trainings its members and defining its tactics. One of cavalry companies' members, Fusilier MacTire has now organized the 51st Cavalry Tournament. The tournament format will be three-versus-three cavalry battles, using both melee and carbines. It will take place on January 16th and 17th at 17:00 CET/11PM ET.

If you can find two other members just register through the #cavalry-tournament channel on Discord. You can optionally have reserve members. Sixteen teams have registered so far.

NCO Applications Are Open!

Do you want to give back the regiment a bit more? Do you want to have more responsibility in and out of the game, including the possibility of leading our lines in linebattles? Applying for the NCO program is your chance if the answers to the above questions is a resounding "yes".

If you hold at least the rank of Regular and you are interested in becoming an NCO, check the #nco-applications channel on Discord to post your application. If your application gets approved, you will enter the three month trial program. You will learn the in-game and administrative responsibilities of an NCO, you will take commanding lessons from the leaders of the regiment, and you will be expected to show the standards of an exemplary member of the 51st Regiment. Getting into the program is not a guarantee of becoming an NCO! You will be informed whether you are accepted as NCO or not at the end of trial period.

Hurry up though! Applications will close soon.

Recruitment & Welcome!

Thank you to our recruiters for their hard work in bringing new blood to our regiment. You can always do recruitment while playing on public servers. Check out the #recruitment channel in Discord for the recruitment messages. The regiment's top recruiter Corporal HubblyBubbly is reaching new heights. He has recruited 240 members so far. We are incredibly thankful for all he has done. He was recently awarded the Distinguished Service Medal, Third Class for his unmatched recruitment numbers. Lance Corporal Omer Haybo is also going strong, with ninety recruited members.

We'd like to once again welcome our new members. We hope you enjoy your time in the 51st Regiment. Feel free to hop on to TeamSpeak, hang out with us play Holdfast or other games. You can always join and have fun!

Thanks to the supreme editors adding me as a strong recruiter, I would not put myself for recruitment.

Hats of the Hubbly and a former legend FeldMarschall in that regard.

It might be a longshot, but if anyone has footage of Average clutching from the 14th I'd love to see it.

A great issue of the Minden News as always!

Well done to all those putting in work for the regiment lately! Of course, kudos to Omer for writing up this months article!
"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. "
