No New Posts Headquarters
The mind, if not the heart, of the Army, this is where Lord Wellington and his Staff are to be found, whether they are using a grand house in a town or a barn out in the countryside. Interactions specific to Headquarters and any threads with the General may be found here.

The 50th are the Dirty Half Hundred. This is a regiment from West Kent, although in its ranks may be found men from all over England - and not just England. They have more than a few Irish among their ranks too. Interactions and conversation specifically in the 50th's area of camp will be found here.

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.

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.

Drawn a sketch of Captain Thorburn encountering the ship's cat in the middle of the night? Done a painting of Terpsy surrounded by mermaids, or one or two of the Riflemen (or even their officers!) getting riotously drunk? Post your artwork and graphics here and let us marvel at them!
