The Army’s first official men’s army, the Sfc, was formed in 1890.
The regiment had three divisions: the 2nd, 3rd, and 5th.
The Sfc was initially stationed in the East Midlands, but after the Civil War the regiment was expanded and relocated to London.
The Army’s men’s division was formed with the SfC, the regiment’s most senior officers.
Its members had the rank of sergeant, and its officers had the highest rank, sergeant-major.
In 1911, the 1st Sfc of the Regiment was killed while serving in Germany, and his body was not returned until 1938.
The men’s divisions were known as “the brigade,” “the wing,” or “the three wings.”
The Sf was known as the “3rd and 5-th,” and the Wing was known by its members as “The Brigade.”
The first men’s regiment, the 6th, was the most elite of the three, with a total of 1,936 men.
They fought in France in the First World War, then in Spain, and were sent to the front.
They eventually fought at the Battle of Jena in 1943, but were killed on the field of Jadresnese in the Ardennes.
The Sfc’s career was not without its troubles.
The war had seen the collapse of the Romanov dynasty and the rise of Nazi Germany, the rise to power of Adolf Hitler, and the Great Patriotic War.
The British Army was in disarray, and many men were drafted to fight in the Third Reich, with the first of many casualties.
In 1918, the Army was formed into the British Expeditionary Force.
The first of its officers to join the regiment, Sir William J. Clark, was killed fighting in France.
The regiment’s men fought for a time in the Pacific, and then, in 1921, the 3rd Sfc and 3rd Wing joined forces to fight the Red Army at the front of the war in the Far East.
The division was known for its “triangle formation,” in which its men held a triangle on either side of the battalion’s lines, and would form up into a line in front of it.
The 3rd and 4th Sfcs were awarded the Medal of Valor, the highest civilian award for bravery, and later served in the trenches of the Somme.
The 4th and 5Sfcs lost their lives at the Sommes front, and their men were awarded two Distinguished Service Crosses.
The 5th Wing was later to serve as the first regiment to be captured and imprisoned in World War I.
The brigade and its men were eventually disbanded, but their legacy lives on today.
In 2017, the British Army issued the Order of Merit, which recognizes individuals who have demonstrated extraordinary qualities in service to their country.
