Issue #40: "V"

D-Day 76 - "The sooner you people get off the beach, the sooner they'll stop this blasted shelling."
June 1944. Operation Neptune and associated airborne operations such as Operation Tonga and Operation Mallard sought to begin what would be Operation Overlord, or the invasion of Normandy. With the first British airborne troops landing just before midnight on the 5th, the majority of British and American airborne troops landed by parachute and glider in the very early morning on the 6th to capture bridges, towns and other strategic points ahead of the sea landings. The main seaborne fleet, made up of 80% Royal Navy vessels, 16% American and 4% other allies, had amassed at an area aptly named "Piccadilly Circus" south of the Isle of Wight early in the morning and steamed onwards on towards the French coastline.

At 05:00, HMS Warspite had the honour of firing the first rounds, the voice of her six 15-inch guns thundered with the aim of softening up the German defences for the landing force. After hours of aerial bombing and heavy naval bombardment, the Americans along with British support landed first at Utah Beach at 06:25. Americans with British, Canadian and Free French troops landed at Omaha Beach minutes later at 06:30. Followed less than an hour later at 07:25 with British and Free French forces landing at Sword Beach where they met the only Panzer Division resistance of the Normandy landings. British forces landed less than ten minutes later at 07:35 at Gold and finally the Canadians and British landed at Juno Beach at 07:55.

It was the largest amphibious assault ever seen with and paved the way for the invasion into Fortress Europe.
The Channel may have stopped Hitler's plans for Britain in 1940, but it didn't stop Britain and her Allies in 1944.

RESULTS - 1v1 Melee Tournament!
On a lighter note, the melee 1v1 internal melee tournament went ahead and it was a huge success. A huge well done to everyone who participated, it was a commendable effort by all. Hopefully all who took part enjoyed it. Honourable mention goes to Grenadier Company. Their reputation precedes itself, Gren. Coy. members were on top form and they performed very well.

Particular congratulations and felicitations go to the three big winners of the tournament:

• 1st place/Overall winner - Guardsman James_Stukov - Awarded Guardsman rank
• Most Improved Enlisted - Grenadier Acez - £10 Steam voucher
• Overall good performance - Grenadier dengland777 - Invited to Grenadier Company

Regardless of how well you did in the final result, we hope you enjoyed the tournament and hopefully you took away something to improve on for next time a tournament comes along.

Upcoming Rocket League 1v1 Tournament!
Lance Corporal Seaside, Lance Corporal VectorScope and Regular Ecko have been devising and organising a 1v1 tournament in Rocket League. The tournament will take place a week from now on Saturday 13th June at 19:00 BST/20:00 CEST. It will be in the style of a double elimination 1v1, meaning if you lose your first match, you'll get another attempt to prove your worth before being knocked out fully. There's a prize for the 1st place winner of a Heatwave skin for Rocket League worth ~€20. More prizes will be added for 2nd and 3rd place when more participants sign up.

To summarise:
• Tournament takes place on Saturday 13th June at 19:00 BST/20:00 CEST
• 1v1 double elimination style tournament.
• Prize for 1st place, with more prizes being added as more join the tournament.
• Open to anyone, no criteria.
• Sign up via the challonge link here.

Any further questions about the tournament can be directed towards either Seaside or VectorScope.

Recruitment & new TeamSpeak badges!
A big thank you to all the recent recruiting efforts by all. We appreciate any and all new recruits that enter our ranks. To show our appreciation for efforts made by our top recruiters, we will be introducing TeamSpeak badges for the top three recruiters for each month.

The top three recruiters (by number of recruited members) for the month of May are as follows:

Lance Corporal HubblyBubbly: 9 recruits
Lance Corporal VectorScope: 8 recruits
Regular George: 4 recruits

Do like our top recruiters and get recruiting! More recruits means bigger and better events!

Modding Support and 51st Uniforms
Modding support for Holdfast has been added in a recent update. This will make for more varied gameplay with hopefully new linebattle, siege and naval maps being added for use in events down the line, as seen with the Helm's Deep map on our Siege event on Tuesday. Modding support allows us to create custom mods for the regiment such as uniforms and colours. Progress on our 51st Regiment of Foot uniforms is coming along nicely as you can see in the teaser image provided by VectorScope on the left of this article. A mod for our own 51st Regimental Colours is also in the works and you may be seeing it soon.

If anyone is inclined to work on mods, feel free! More mods means more variation and makes for interesting gameplay!

Current Schedule:
Monday — Naval Battle — 20:00 CEST / 2:00 PM EDT
Tuesday — Siege — 20:00 CEST / 2:00 PM EDT
Wednesday — Training — 20:00 CEST / 2:00 PM EDT

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.
