During the Second Boer War companies of Yeomanry  were formed to serve overseas from volunteers from the Yeomanry. In 1901 all yeomanry regiments were redesignated as "Royal Yeomanry", and reorganized. In 1908 the Royal Yeomanry was merged with the Volunteer Force to form the Territorial Force.

Attacking Strategies Edit

  • Royal Yeomanry has low health; making them vulnerable to defenses. Use Heavy Infantry as meat shields to protect the Royal Yeomanry.
  • Royal Yeomanry is cheap and can be used to set off hidden enemy traps.
  • Use Royal Yeomanry to protect heavy infantry from other infantry so your Heavy Infantry won't get distracted.
  • Since Royal Yeomanry can deal more damage to foot troops, bringing some along with Heavy Infantry and/or Heavy Cavalry will help deal with pesky defending foot troops!
  • Make sure to keep the Royal Yeomanry behind your 'meat shields' or away from danger.

Defensive Strategies Edit

  • Royal Yeomanry can be used as good Alliance Troops. One example is that they can shoot over walls to attack troops of the attackers forcing the troops to destroy the wall to kill them. Another thing is that they're good against other Heavy Infantry.

Trivia Edit

  • A historical misconception is that according to military context, Yeomanry applies to longbowmen (whom are a lower rank than knights and squires but a higher rank than knaves) during the Gunpowder Age or volunteer cavalry regiments. The Yeomanry did arise in the late 18th century to counter the French threat but were volunteered for cavalry, not infantry.
  • The United Kingdom still have Yeomanry regiments in their army from the Napoleonic Wars to World War I to today.
  • The Unit is based on 18th Century British Grenadier
