No New Posts Letters and Correspondence
The primary method of communication between those at sea or away with the Army at this time is by letter. Letters, tickets of absence, invitations and billets-doux may be written and posted here, in the sure knowledge they will be delivered safely by a Post Office that is the envy of the world. There may be a delay of several weeks between sending a note and receiving a reply, due to the slowness of 19th century travel, however.

No New Posts The Gazette
For those far from home, newspapers are worth their weight in gold, no matter that they may be several weeks or months out of date by the time they reach His Majesty's forces. This board is for articles of interest (real or fictional) to our characters.

No New Posts The 5/60th Rifles
Raised in 1797 by combining two German regiments, the 5/60th are three years older than the 95th. They have a very high ratio of Germans and German-speaking soldiers, although they do have a handful of British men. Their motto is Celer et Audax (Swift and Bold) and they do their best to live up to it, taking only the most intelligent and quick-witted men. Interactions specific to the 5/60th's camp or bivouac to go here.
