These troops are responsible for holding the line, equally skilled using their bayonets or firing massed volleys.

The 33rd Foot are known as “The Pattern” for their stoic professionalism in battle; they are able to calmly pick targets and fire on them even while skirmishers’ shots whiz by their ears, artillery shells explode around them and cavalry charges bear down upon them. To guard against such devastating enemy charges they can move from line to square formation.

The 33rd Foot was originally raised in 1702 as the Earl of Huntingdon’s Regiment of Foot. It was not until 1751, when all regiments were numbered rather than taking their general’s name, that it became the 33rd Foot. They left England for America in May of 1776 and were part of the force that besieged Charlestown. They joined Howe’s New York campaign and took part in a number of key battles including Brandywine. Despite losses the 33rd Foot were able to break the American line, pursuing them for a full 2 miles. The regiment eventually became “The Duke of Wellington’s”, the only unit in the British Army named to honour a non-Royal.
