Our beloved brother, General Reich Graf James von Beerstein, recently led a successful expedition in support of Elector Ulrich von Luftberg’s campaign against the Kingdom of Aschenback. In recognition of the stout defense of our infantry during the Battle of Althirschburg, Reich Graf James was awarded the newly instituted Luftberg Order de l’Ananas. Upon the strong recommendation of James, Brigadier General Ludwig Third Baron of Brewski is promoted to Major General of Cavalry and is inducted into the Order of the Goblet. Battle Streamers are also awarded to the Landbier Grenadiers, the Warsteiner Fusiliers, and the Michelob and Lowenbrau Musketeers.
On a more somber note, Reich Graf James reports that British, Hanoverian, and Dutch troops were massing on the border of our Protectorate; the Barony of Brewswick. Although the Prussians have long claimed ties to the Barony of Brewswick, the terms of their recent defeat precludes them from directly intervening in the Reich Duchy of Beerstein’s area of influence. Clearly the Prussians have sent their allies to do their bidding. While this disturbing report was immediately sent to the Reichstag for action, Reich Duke Wilhelm has ordered all military units to begin mobilizing.
