Introduction:

The 71st (Highland) Regiment of Foot is a Mount & Blade: Napoleonic Wars regiment dedicated to creating lasting friendships, enjoying weekly events, and accurately representing military structure, command, and tactics -- all the while making sure our members are disciplined and able to follow orders to-the-letter. We have an active roster of approximately 45 men, around 65 in total. Previously known as the Infanterie Regiment Nr. 62, we've set out with the British faction to continue to expand in the NW community. With our easy to get along with members and can-do attitude, the 71st aspires to enjoy the game for what it truly is.

The 71st was originally formed from the 2nd Battalion of the 32nd Regiment of Foot in 1758.  Shortly after their formation the 71st took part in a raid on the French coast at Cherbourg during the Seven Years' War. After smashing the fort and docks at Cherbourg, the 71st boarded a ship and headed back to England. Later on it would take part in a similar raid on Belleisle in 1761. In 1763 the regiment became invalid and was disbanded in 1768.

MacLeod's Highlanders

The MacLeod's Highlanders were raised from an independent Highland regiment by John Mackenzie, Lord MacLeod, son of the Earl of Cromartie, in 1777 as the 73rd (Highland) Regiment of Foot (MacLeod's Highlanders). Lord MacLeod was the first commander of the regiment, adopting the “Macleod of Harris tartan” that was originally a Mackenzie tartan. The 1st battalion served in the East India Campaign. Between 1778 and 1786 the 1st/73rd Highlanders saw service in Gambia in West Africa and in the Mysore War in India where the battalion was completely destroyed during the Battle of Conjeveram on 10 September 1780. A 2nd Battalion was raised in 1778, serving from 1780 in Gibraltar where they took part in the siege of the fortress before disbanding in 1786 after they were absorbed into the 1st Battalion in 1783. In 1786 the regiment was redesignated as the 71st (Highland) Regiment of Foot (MacLeod's Highlanders).

Re-designation

After being redesignated the 71st Highlanders carried on fighting in India where they fought in the Battle of Pondicherry in 1793 and at Ceylon in 1795. In 1798 after a number of years on active service the effective troops left in the regiment were transferred to the 74th Regiment of Foot and the remainder returned to Scotland by 1802. A 2nd Battalion was formed in 1804. Over the next few years the regiment changed its name a number of times before becoming the 71st (Glasgow Highland Light Infantry) in 1809 and finally 71st (Highland) Regiment of Foot (Light Infantry). In order to become Light Infantry the regiment changed the way it trained, marched and fought.

1st Battalion, 71st Highlanders

The 1st Battalion left Britain for the Cape of Good Hope in 1806 where they were involved in minor actions. In June 1806 they were shipped to South America where they were involved in the disastrous expedition against Buenos Aires by Sir Home Popham. The city was actually captured but later the inhabitants rose against the small British force and took them prisoner. The 1st/71st was one of the battalions captured. Two battalion flags or Regimental Colours were also captured. On the 21st. of April 1808 the regiment received new colours instead of those they had surrendered at Buenos Aires. The colours were presented by General Floyd, a veteran officer. After reforming the battalion they sailed in 1808 for Portugal where they took part in General Moore's advance into Spain and disastrous retreat out of Spain which ended with Moore's victory at Corunna. Upon leaving Spain the battalion was sent in 1809 on the Walcheren Campaign. In 1810 the battalion was back in Iberia. They fought all the way through the Peninsular War, in Vitoria battle they were to hold the extreme right of the line and where ambushed at the anfitheatre and masacred by two french regiments, 40 surrendered and arround 200 where dead or wounded. Also were at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815 as part of the 3rd Brigade in Maj.General Sir Henry Clinton's 2nd Division. The 1st/71st lost 16 officers and 171 men killed and wounded at Waterloo.

Introduction:

The 71st has grown a lot in the past months, and we've decided to further expand and live up to our statement for us being NA/EU based. While we are as of right now majorly NA-based, we have a few EU's and to help compensate for the huge time difference and lack of relative events, the 71st has established an "EU" company.  The company will be led by RSM Althalus, and upon reaching a sufficient number of active soldiers will begin training and participating in events throughout the EU timezone. 

We now have a server hosted in Europe titled 'NW_71st_Official_2.' Free to be used by the public, although its main purpose will be to serve as a training area for the EU company.




Contact Details:

If you are interested in joining the 71st, and you happen to be living in EU, contact althalus311 on Steam or join this TeamSpeak: bluefangsolutions.com (Scroll down around 3/4ths of the way down to find the 71st section) and speak with a 71st officer.

You may also directly apply via this forum thread, simply copy and paste the following application code by filling out each criteria:

When I first made this regiment back in April, I had scoured the forums for any sign of the same regiment. I found one, but it more or less has been disbanded and their post hadn't been bumped in over a month.
