|The Hussars Gaming Group (HGG) is a community of gamers and gaming clans who get together to play games for fun, without the onerous requirements of commitment, skill (or in more extreme cases gaming PCs), that are typically required by other more intensive organisations.
We like to think of ourselves as a virtual friendly pub within the digital community, where our preferred playing style is being fair and having fun.HGG was created in 2003 by the 1st Hussars gaming clan, as an expansion of their gaming interests and a central hub for the various individuals and clans who had previously been treading the message boards of the www.battlefield1942.co.uk site.
HGG itself is not a clan in the traditional sense and does not have any formal in-game presence, but is a community hub for other affiliated clans and individuals who do and is managed by the 1st Hussars clan who form the core of the community.

|— LATEST NEWS SUMMARY —
Today marks the twelfth anniversary since discussions between Messrs. Flasheart (Major Headache) and Baldric (Pte Niles) decided to fly in the face of received opinion and form a clan based not on competitive gaming, but on a desire to get together and have fun. It was (despite what they felt at the time) not the first such clan and will not be the last, but it was certainly a dramatic influence on an entire gaming community and would be so for years.
While many of those early recruits are no longer with us, a few are and despite many changes over the years, we have staggered on while many of our fellow clans have foundered. We raise a cheery wave with our fellow survivors from that battlefield community from many years ago and raise a toast to all those who have served with us in the past, who serve with us still and who will join us in the future.
Well, it has taken some time but the site has now been migrated (more or less successfully) to Voo’s web space (many thanks Voo), because I was getting fed up with the very patchy support from our previous hosts.
If you haven’t yet signed up to the new forum then please do so.
Hopefully we will see some of our errant members return in time for the 12th birthday next week.
No news on the return of the forum yet, but we have (at Flasheart’s suggestion) set up a Facebook Group called Hussars Gaming Group as a way of communicating outside the forums.
I have been informed by our hosts that the issue with the old server should be resolved by tomorrow, which will hopefully enable them to get it up and running again and thus restore the forums to their previous glory.
This is just as well because so far all attempts to recover the forum from my backups or their network storage devices have failed.
