Issue #39: "Quality is not an act, it is a habit."

75th Anniversary of VE Day! - "They gave their lives that others might have freedom"
As readers of the Minden News may know, the 8th of May is VE Day and this years was the 75th anniversary of VE Day. VE Day (or Victory in Europe Day) commemorates the unconditional surrender of Nazi Germany in 1945, marking the end of the Second World War in the European Theatre. This was a momentous and joyous occasion for the European peoples, including those from neutral nations, who had endured total war since 1939. However it was marred with sadness for some, with numerous lives lost over the course of the previous six years.

Many of us being Europeans, we tend to overlook the fact that there was further fighting well after VE Day against Japan in the Pacific, whom at this point remained unsubdued, until late 1945.
Whilst the Americans and Australians were tackling the Philippines, the United Kingdom and Empire forces, along with Dutch and American troops, tightened their grip on Borneo.

We tend to overlook the Burma Campaign to an even greater extent, where the United Kingdom and her Empire, along with American, Republican Chinese and Burmese-allied troops continued their struggle against Japanese and Free Indian forces until late 1945. The British Fourteenth Army's nickname, The Forgotten Army, is a prime example of how the contemporary news sources overlooked the Burma Campaign in favour of the developing situation in the Pacific.

Want to compete in a regimental melee event for fun? Fancy yourself a melee player and want to prove your worth? Or maybe you just want to win prizes and bragging rights?

The 51st will be holding a melee tournament within the regiment, which will be taking place the end of this month on Friday 29th May at 20:30 BST/21:30 CEST!
The tournament will be in the style of a 'world cup', this means there will be a Group Stage with groups of 4 players, the top 2 players of each group will go through to elimination style rounds until a winner is crowned. This tournament is open to everyone in the regiment, regardless of rank or company. In addition, there will be prizes given to participants. The Overall Winner will receive the coveted Guardsman rank, the most improved enlisted will receive a £10 Steam voucher and invitations to Grenadier Company may be given to those who show exemplary melee skills throughout the tournament.

To summarise:
• Tournament takes place on Friday 29th May at 20:30 BST/21:30 CEST
• Group Stage will consist of 4-man groups.
• Top 2 players in each group will progress to elimination stages.
• Anyone in the regiment can participate.
• Sign up via the challonge link here.

Prizes are as such:
• 1st place/Overall winner - Guardsman Rank
• Most Improved Enlisted - £10 Steam Voucher
• Invitations into Grenadier Company - Based off performance

Any further questions about the tournament can be directed towards any NCO or Officer.
