The Grenadiers

The Grenadiers were one of two “Elite” companies in a British regiment. These units, recruited from within the regiment, were made up of the tallest and strongest men. Originally tasked with assaulting fortifications by lobbing hand grenades over the walls, into trenches, etc; by the 18th century they no longer threw grenades but, were used as elite assault troops in the attack and, an almost un-moveable wall in the defense.
