History[edit]

As Alexandria has been one of the most frequent targets of invasion, raids, and counterattacks between the Lyran Commonwealth and Draconis Combine, the Alexandria Skye March Militia was one of the few militia units that is well-regarded by the citizens of the Federation of Skye. Though rated Green the Militia trains constantly and has repelled several raids by the DCMS.[1]

After the separation of the FC, the unit was renamed as Alexandria Freedom Theater Militia and assigned to a different Theater Militia.

Several rumors suggest that Duke Robert Kelswa-Steiner tried to buy the support of the Alexandria FTM for the Free Skye Movement.[1] To an extent, these rumors were confirmed when the Alexandria FTM moved to support the Accrington FTM in their assault on Freedom.[2] During the Jihad the Alexandria FTM remained on Freedom.[3]

In late 3059, the planet Alexandria suffered what was later known as the Briggs Armored Car robbery. A gang of criminals stole a shipment of gems even though the Knox Armored Car had been provided with an escort of a pair of Commando BattleMechs by the Alexandria Freedom Theater Militia. The criminals (rumored to have strong ties with the Mafia) possessed several suits of Grey Death Legion Battle Armor.[4]
