The Forty-first Lyran Guards were a regiment of the Lyran Guards brigade active during the Star League era.[1]


Star League Era[edit]

During the Star League era the Forty-first Lyran Guards was one of six regiments within the Fifth Lyran Guards Division, one of five Divisions of active regiments within the Lyran Guards brigade in the closing decades of the Star League's existence.[1]

Like the other regiments of the Guards during this era, the Forty-first lacked any particular political ties - either regional or familial - unlike regiments in other brigades; commonly assigned to garrison postings, the Forty-first Lyran Guards and their sister regiments were postings of choice for those who wanted to work for the Commonwealth without either regional loyalties or particular ambitions. This led to the Forty-first and her sister regiments being manned by soldiers who were professional, but without the close-knit ties found in more parochial regiments. The LCAF was intent on generating more camaraderie and esprit de corps amongst the Forty-first and the other Guards regiments, but with little success by 2765.[1]

In 2765 the Forty-first was stationed on Tamar, the former capital of the Tamar Pact and one of three provincial capitals within the Lyran Commonwealth. Tamar was the only planet in the Commonwealth to be the base location for two Lyran Guards regiments, as the Forty-fourth Lyran Guards were also notionally stationed on Tamar; however, while the Forty-first was the official garrison regiment for Tamar, the Forty-fourth was serving as a strategic reserve for the local region, deploying to other systems and planets as required.[1]
