British Armies in America - Brigade of Guards

June 29, 2003

The Brigade of Guards is the elite formation of the British Armies in America.
Officers can request a transfer to the Guards when they have reached the rank of Captain and have been declared eligible by the Commander-in-Chief, British Armies in America, on recommendation of their corps commander. Criteria for being eligible are either an excellent battlefield record, or major contributions to the club life.

(Historical note: We are aware that no complete battalion of one of the three regiments of Foot Guards ever fought in the American Revolutionary War, and that the historical Brigade of Guards was formed from detachments from all companies of the three regiments back home. The Brigade of Guards in the British Armies in America in the CCC employs some artistic licence to accomodate the needs of a wargaming club ...)
