Nemo me impune lacessit
No one attacks me with impunity





The 42nd (Black Watch) Regiment of Foot is a mature active Mount and Musket regiment that has many months of experience. We thrive on discipline in Trainings/Linebattles and Events however when no other events on we switch to relax mode and bond as a regiment and play other games to build friendships.

My aim for the 42nd Regiment of Foot is to bring 35 members from the Line Battalion and 6 members from the Artillery Company, I am happy to say we have nearly accomplished that goal, however we require a few more members for our Artillery detachment.

Ranks within the 42nd Regiment of Foot are not thrown around like toys but earnt through activity and dedication. If promotions drive you then all I can ask from you is to be active show commitment because it does go along however if you are a casual player all I ask from you is to turn up and have fun.







The 42nd (Blackwatch) Regiment of Foot was a British infantry regiment from 1748 to 1881. It was made up of 561 men (35 officers / 526 troops), it was comprised of 8 Centre Companies, 1 Grenadier Company and 1 Light Fusilier Company.

 During the Napoleonic Wars, the 42nd Regiment of Foot, the Black Watch fought from Egypt to Spain and through to Waterloo. In Egypt the 42nd captured an Imperial Eagle, in Spain the 1st Battalion's stalwart defence saved the lives of other Regiments and that of the military theorist and Scottish general John Moore. In Belgium the 42nd gained huge fame and love from Wellington himself at the Battles of Quatre Bras and Waterloo.

The 42nd was at the chaotic Battle of Quatre Bras on 16 June 1815 and was one of four battalions mentioned in despatches by Wellington. Two days later at the Battle of Waterloo, the 42nd and also the 2nd/73rd Highlanders, which was to become the 2nd Battalion, Black Watch, were both in some of the most intense fighting in the battle and lost 289 men.

It is said that without Quatre Bras there would never have been a Battle of Waterloo.
