Some very good points raised Deofuta! In the spirit of regiments leading by example in order to further recruitment possibilities, might i take this opportunity to reference everyone to the endeavours being made by Colonel Nicholls of the Scots Guards and Colonel Spartan of the 2nd Coldstream Guards in this respect. Please do feel free to check out the details of the Regimental Vs Irregulars Contests; i provide the relevant link below...
Sounds like some kind of yodaism..... Will vodka help one in mastering the force? On a more pertinent note to the topic in question, i think the point of regiments is to make the game more fun for all, not sure handing out cash rewards sets a very good precedent!
1 other tip. NEVER EVER EVER EVER Ever try to recruit from another regiment. It's really bad for your reputation.
Also, Stefiboy, I remember being told about, when you were leading the 72nd and me the 88e, how you led your men and some of men who were volunteering straight into a river. Unfortunately, you disappeared from TC before I could sufficiently mock you XD
