Garrison Regiment No. 1, von Beck, is now forming.

PRESS RELEASE:  from the Ministry of Defense

DATE:  15 April, 1750

SUBJECT: Formation of Garrison Regiment No. 1

(Gotha) The Ministry of Defense announces the formation of a new regiment that will provide for the town garrison of Gotha. The new regiment, titled Garrison Regiment Number One, will replace the ad hoc rotation of regular army companies detached from their parent units to serve as the garrison for the town of Gotha. It's numerical designation shall be "GR1" (or Garrison Regiment Number 1).

Uniforms, currently in production at the establishment of Herr Haberdasher of Savilestrasse, will be entirely of dark green wool cloth (coat, waistcoat, breeches) with red turnbacks and collars on the coats. The green lapels on the coats will be piped in red and provide a pleasant contrast to the dark Elven Green color.

The Grenadier company will have a similar uniform, save for their silver plate mitre caps with red bag and green base.

The regiment's flags are currently being stitched together by GMB Designs, Ltd., a very reputable firm in the Royal Kingdom of Britannia.

Quaratermaster General Ernst von Jung reports that two of the center companies are outfitted with all of their kit and that the grenadier company will be completed within another day. The reminder of the regiment should have its uniforms by the end of this week.

Sketch drawings will be posted in the Gotha Times in time for publication in its weekend edition.


  1. Hurrah!

    Will their motto be "Do you the Devil's work?"

    Or am I thinking of the wrong Von Bek?

  2. Well, they'll look pretty, but can they fight?
