History[edit]

The Lyran Commonwealth Armed Forces recruited elements of the Eighteenth Infantry Division in 2782.[1] A Star League Defense Force command, the Eighteenth had been a part of LXVII Corps[2] within the SLDF Eleventh Army,[1][2] but the Eighteenth had been disbanded following the battle for Alula Australis[3][2] and personnel from the Eighteenth went on to join both the LCAF and the DCMS.[2] Those who joined the LCAF were formed into a reactivated reigment within the Lyran Guards, the Eighteenth Lyran Guards.[1]

As the largest brigade within the LCAF at the time, the Lyran Guards were organized into a number of divisions; the Eighteenth would have been incorporated into the Second Lyran Guards Division.[4]
