The 47th Lancashire Regiment of Foot was founded on 1/8/18 by Unitater. This was a continuation of the USMC (founded 2012), and then the 15e (founded in 2017) for Mount and Blade: Napoleonic Wars. We are a successor to both regiments, founded as a strong regiment for the Whigs and Tories community. Though we are primarily a North American Regiment, we also accept members from around then world. We are a disciplined regiment, dedicated to the history of the time period, with priority given to professionalism, as well as having fun in the events. The 47th aims to be a supportive, entertaining community under experienced leadership which helps bring this historic moment to life, if you are interested in joining this community with us, read on!

Creation

His Majesty's Regiment, the 47th Royal Lancashire Regiment of Foot was created on January 3rd, 1741 under Col. Mordaunt. The regiment initially saw conflict in the Jacobite Rebellions of 1745-46, where after being initially routed, held Edinburgh Castle until reinforcements arrived to relieve the siege. The regiment then saw stationing in England, Scotland, and Ireland.                                           

French and Indian War

The regiment then saw action in the 1750s, when they fought in the French and Indian War, capturing Forts Beausejour and Gaspereau in 1755. In 1758, the regiment won its first Honours, for its amphibious attack on Fort Louisburg. The following year, the army marched directly against Quebec, where they slipped past the French blockade under cover of night to get on the Plains of Abraham, behind the French defenders. The regiment held fire until within 40 yards, then opening a withering hail of fire, a tactic only the most disciplined troops could perform. The 47th were also involved in a second battle on the Plains of Abraham, in April 1760, forcing the British back into the town. They 47th were relieved in September, capitulating the French, and granting Canada to the British.                                         

American Revolution

In 1763, the 47th went back to Ireland for ten years, before quartering in New Jersey.  In the Fall of 1774, the regiment moved to Boston, and in 1775 a small company of the 47th set out for Concord, but were attacked at Lexington and then Concord, the first engagement of the Revolutionary War. The revolutionary force was reinforced at Concord, then marched back to Boston.                           

The 47th then had a presence in the battle of Bunker Hill. The British forces were outnumbered and besieged in Boston, but reinforcements emboldened General Gage to beak out and capture the nearby hills of Bunker's Hill and Breed's Hill. In 1775, the first two attacks were repulsed, but the 47th took part in the third desperate assault, capturing the hill at bayonet point. This was a display of necessary triumph of discipline and gallantry over poor generalship.                                                                                                                 

The regiment then fought in the following year after being withdrawn to Canada, and lifting the American siege on Quebec. The regiment then joined Major General Burgoyne's expeditionary force against the colonies. After initial success on the frontier between Canada and New England, including the capture of Fort Ticonderoga, Burgoyne marched south to link up with Major General Howe. The main body of the regiment stayed with Burgoyne while detachments held off American attacks on Forts George and Diamond Island. Burgoyne was caught by an American force double his size, numbering around 13,000 men near Stillwater in September of 1777. Burgoyne's attack failed and was forced to get to Saratoga, eventually surrendering to the American forces.                                                 

After reforming the regiment from the surviving detachments in 1781, the regiment saw action abroad in the French Revolutionary War's second half, touring Ireland in 1784-90, then Canada in 1890-91, and the West Indies in 1791-1803.                                                     

Napoleonic Wars

The regiment then saw action in the Napoleonic Wars, storming the Spanish colony of Monte Video in 1807, though failing to capture Benos Aires. The regiment sailed after their South American adventures through the Cape of Good Hope for a 20 year tour of the East Indies.                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

In 1811, two companies of the 47th fought in Barrosa, Spain while garrisoning Gibraltar, Tarifa, and Cadiz. The victory cost them nearly a third of their strength however. On the 31st of December, the regiment was surrounded and besieged by French troops at Tarifa, a fortress in southern Spain. After the walls had a breach made, some 2,000 French grenadiers and voltiguers charged through, though the 47th, with the 87th manned the walls and beat them back, ending the siege. The regiment was awarded another Honour "Tarifa," and was lauded for the heroic victory. The regiment then fought at Puente Largo, after joining forces with the retreating Duke of Wellington in Portugal. Here they fought a heroic rearguard action, repulsing several french attacks across the bridge. The regiment continued its distinguise service at Vittoria (1813), San Sebastian (1813), and Nive (1813), repeatedly charging the enemy lines with their bayonets, but losing many men in the process. Finally in 1814, the Peninsular War came to an end.                                                       

Between the Napoleonic Wars and the Crimean War, the regiment saw tours in the colonies, from the West Indies, to Gibraltar, to Malta and the Ionian Islands, to faraway lands such as Arabia, India, and Burma. The regiment fought in the 3rd Mahratta War in 1817, defeating the local ruler of Gujarat and taking several hill forts, breaking the turbulent Pindari resistance. In 1809, the regiment saw action in the Persian Gulf, capturing the Pirate Lairs of Ras-al-Khyma and Quishm Island, on the Straights of Hormuz. The regiment also acted as military advisors to train the Shah of Persia's army in 1819. In 1824, the regiment was stationed in Calcutta when war broke out with the Burmese, where they put down a serious Sepoy mutiny in Barrackpore, then fought its way up the River Irrawaddy to Ava, distinguishing itself in the capture of several forts including Fort Syrian, near Rangoon, earning the Battle Honour "Ava."                             

Crimean War

The regiment then sailed for Malta in 1854 to counter Russian Expansion into the Black Sea, starting the Crimean War. The first engagement took place at the River Alma, where the 47th took the left flank of the russian redoubts, causing the Russians to retreat, as they had lost the high ground. The Russians then attacked at Inkerman without warning with 35,000 men, though retreated with the loss of 12,000 men. Pvt. John McDermond was awarded a Victoria Cross for his heroics, leading a charge to save his fallen Colonel. The regiment faced starvation and cholera through the hard winter, but fought through to the Battle of Sevastopol, where they charged the Russian position knows as the Quarries, holding it against several counter attacks. The gallantry throughout the war saw three Battle Honours, "Alma", "Inkerman", and "Sevastopol".                                                                                                                                                         

End

The 47th's last action was in 1861, where they fought off a force of Irish Republicans who launched an invasion across the Niagra frontier into Canada (defending the territory for a third time), during the American Civil War. The Regiment remained in Canada until 1868, and eventually was amalgamated with the 81st to form the Loyal North Lancashire Regiment in 1881. Each regiment, the 47th, and the 81st were individual Battalions, until 1949, when they were amalgamated.
