    Just realised I spooned my English in my first question. "Are you now the 1stMA sharps or is this an off shoot of the 2ndMA Inf?" Was what I was aiming for, but the volunteer requirements ironed it out.

    I would however say I don't disagree with what Hairy is say. This seems a little premature to be formed and might be interpreted as a power grab so you can proclaim yourself a Major. I'm not suggesting that this is what you have done at all though. Might I suggest holding fire and getting the 2ndMA into a real position of strength before off shooting. Right now you have 28 men between both groups which is a touch on the small side to be trying to lay claim to two units.

    As A Company, the highest rank achievable is Captain.
    According to historical data this unit only ever achieved company status as there was only ever one company not multiples, and was assigned to function within the structure of a larger regiment, in this case, the 15th MA Infantry, 1st Brigade, 2nd Division, II Corps.

    It also only had two commanders, both Captains.

    So I can see where the problems are coming from.

    Also for the record, a player named Gunny has already posted a claim to this unit on Oct 16th 2016.

    The Company has to be fully formed for the name to be claimed. It took me one month what it takes some people months to do Hill. Do you want to know why sir?

    Is there any other way to live our lives my friend? I get that people aren't taking this serious. And that's fine. At this point I do not expect that. But rest assured that I am no ::insert company jumper name/Corps starter name::

    I finish what I start.
