Anglo Dutch Dispatch

Spanish Walloon Guards

Greetings gentlemen and welcome to the Anglo-Dutch Dispatch. Don't forget that we have our quite unique London Gazette, which is updated regularly with all our Armies' news and information. We have had a few new members start their training over the past months, welcome gentlemen, but membership is very low this quarter… please continue badgering friends and relatives and get them to look at OUR club.

Lord Cheshire, Brigadier General Sir Tony Dobson, has announced his intention to retire. It is scarcely necessary to describe how much this stalwart and tireless warrior and gentleman will be missed by all in the NWC.

Gentlemen over the next few months there will be some major changes within the Army due to the changing front in France. KT The Guards Division will become an active Division. There will be more information on this as time goes on but the Corps should be up and running, ready to go to France by the end of Feb 1803. The RMA is on the quiet side this Quarter but with new plans in mind I hope we can see some new Cadets pass thought its doors. I would like to thank all the Officers that took the time to answer the muster call. That is it for now chaps; it remains for me to wish you all great gaming and a Happy New Year!!


This has been everybody’s favourite subject. So I have now decided to keep this in for this issue. Here is a list of the Anglo-Allied rank structure.


The rank of Colonel can only be passed by an officer in Brigade/Division/Corps command or by an officer with an admin role within the club.

It gives me the greatest pleasure to announce the following promotions, decorations and commissions and postings.

God save King George!!
