|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 —
Yes, once again we reach the anniversary of the founding of our glorious clan.
As we hit the thirteen year mark we should raise a toast to all those still part of our online company and those who have added to our shenanigans in years past and are no longer with us. As always, we should remember the people responsible for the creation of the 1st Hussars clan – specifically Messrs Pte Niles (Baldric) and Major Headache (Flasheart), but aided and abetted by the like-minded and fumble-fingered folk such as Deadmeat (Miggins) and FanDancer (Proudfoot-Smith).
We are certainly nowhere near as active as we once were, but it is a testament to the community spirit that we created and maintained that many years after people have stopped playing the game that brought us all together, a core of us are still gathering regularly to take the mickey out of each other.
With that in mind, we will be gathering this Saturday night (from or shortly after 20:00) to take part in a group gathering in two parts:
Anyone who doesn’t have GTA V is encouraged to hop on TS at some stage (if only so we can try and convence them to get the game as it is a damned fine and indeed fun gaming experience).
Anyone reading this is of course considered part of our wider family and the invite is extended to them as well.
Flasheart, Blackadder, Miggins and Agrajag
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.
