This regiment fights for The Seven Nation Army.


The 40th (2nd Somersetshire) Regiment of Foot is an NA regiment founded on 4/11/14 by Locust. The 40th prides itself on being diciplined and skilled. The 40th hopes to become a shining example to other regiments one day. The regiment only accepts those who have proficient skill in the game and can behave themselves like gentleman. Being a gentleman in this regiment means that you have respect for your fellow rankers and commanding officers alike..nothing less will be tolerated. In addition, actions in events such as headbanging, speaking out of line, etc. are prone to punishment. Basically, no trolls allowed. And if you do troll, expect to be kicked. Although we may come of as strict or "mean" that doesent mean we dont have fun. We participate in many 1v1s, large scale events, and other such things. We also play other games outside of NW. We are a group of friends, please feel free to have fun together!

We consider ourselves to be mainly a regiment specialized in ranged and melee combat for line infantry. Because of this we do not offer any detachments positions, as our goal is to focus and hone our skill in Line to the fullest extent.

In 1710 Britain captured the French colony of Port Royal in Canada and renamed it Annapolis Royal after Queen Anne. Britain initially relied on independent companies to defend its new port, but in 1717 the governor of Nova Scotia, General Richard Phillips, merged eight of these into a single regiment.

In 1751 this unit was granted the numeral 40 and 10 years later it left North America for the first time, moving to the West Indies.

In 1764 it deployed to Ireland, then in June 1775 to Boston Massachusetts, meaning it was already in North America on the outbreak of the American War of Independence (1775-83). It fought in the West Indies as well as on the American mainland during that conflict, moving to Britain in 1783. That period also saw it associated with Somerset for the first time.

The regiment's first deployment in the French Revolutionary Wars (1792-1802) was two-pronged, with its battalion companies fighting in Flanders and Brittany, and its light-infantry flank companies deployed to the West Indies. The regiment reunited in the West Indies in 1795, serving on Santo Domingo and Jamaica before returning to Britain in 1798.

In 1799 the regiment raised a 2nd Battalion for the Helder campaign in Holland. The following year the flank companies of both battalions landed at Aboukir Bay near Alexandria, Egypt. 2nd Battalion was disbanded in 1802.

From 1802 to 1804 the regiment was kept in Britain, raising another 2nd Battalion in 1804 for service in Britain and Ireland. 1st Battalion was sent on the failed attempt to capture Buenos Aires in 1806 and deployed to Spain and Portugal from 1808 to 1814. It was thus one of only three regiments to serve throughout the Peninsula campaign. It was then sent to Canada in 1814 to fight in the War of 1812 (1812-15), before being quickly recalled the following year when Napoleon escaped from Elba.

1st Battalion joined Wellington’s force at Waterloo (18 June 1815) just before battle commenced. Initially placed in reserve, later in the day they were moved to the centre of his line near La Haye Sainte. They held firm all day and helped drive off Napoleon’s final massed infantry attack, losing 167 killed or wounded.

2nd Battalion was disbanded in 1816 and the regiment remained on home service until 1823, when it was sent to guard convicts in New South Wales for five years. It then moved to India for 17 years. Its service on the sub-continent included the First Afghan War (1839-42) and the Gwalior campaign (1843).

A seven-year period in Britain and Ireland followed, before it was sent back to New South Wales in 1852. Two years later it helped suppress the Eureka Rebellion in Victoria and then fought in the Second Maori War (1860-61).

It was in Britain and Ireland from 1866 to 1872 before embarking for India again. While there, the regiment was amalgamated in 1881 with the 82nd Regiment of Foot (Prince of Wales’s Volunteers) to form The Prince of Wales’s Volunteers (South Lancashire Regiment).

•The Excellers (a pun on its Latin numeral, XL)
•The Fighting Fortieth (for its courage in Egypt)



Being dedicated and putting time into the regiment is one of the best ways to get promoted. Along with continuously improving your skill, loyalty to the 40th will be greatly rewarded, and earn the respect of others

Everyone is expected to follow orders to the dot and listen to those who are leading. This means no talking over the leader, playing your best, and paying attention. Paying attention to orders is critical to success.

Being active in the 40th is very important. What is the point of being in a regiment if you do not attend any events? Members are expected to attend atleast two events per week. Ofcourse, if one cannot attend because of real life issues then just simply notify an officer or NCO.

One is expected to carry themselves to a high degree of maturity. Yes, it is a game but conducting yourself in a positive manner is essential.


TO all aspiring heroes bold, who have spirits above slavery and trade, and inclinations to become gentlemen, by bearing arms in His Majesty's 40th Regiment of Foot, let them repair to the drum head where each gentleman volunteer shall be kindly and honourably entertained, and enter into his Majesty King George's service; and when you come to join your respected regiment, shall have new caps, arms, clothes and accoutrements, and everything that is necessary and fitting to complement a gentleman soldier.
