We are the light infantry, an elite company of the 23rd Regiment of Foot, Royal Welch Fusiliers. Made up of the quickest and most active men of the regiment, we were employed as scouts, skirmishers and shock troops. Come join us and live on the sharp edge of the regiment and the British army in North America!
