Further posting in SwitzerlandEdit
In light of the events of the Second Saranu War and the Swiss Civil War, the 74th were posted to Switzerland to aide the Swiss Loyalist Army.
With the castle of Koniz surrounded, the 74th Royal Highlanders under the command of Sir Venables charged the enemy, crying fowl murder at the enemy. With the Sarunu's advanced weaponry the Highlander's were cut down including Venables who appeared to be dead to all the world. 5000 Highlanders charge down the mountain, only 400 return alive.
The last 400 men of the 74th along with the 76th made a ragged retreat from Koniz to the Ruhestatte Schloss and began to fortify the palace against incursion from Sarunu attack. They barely made it out with 200 men. Covering the retreat of the rest of the Koniz population. Many were cut down in the throne room as they struggled to get through the ancient tunnels to safety. Those who survived, escaped carrying their wounded commander on the battered colours of the Regiment to safety.
In the Siege of Koniz, the surviving members of the 74th had their bitter revenge upon the Saranu, charging head long into the hardest breech in the walls of Koniz. Nothing could stop their fury, they pushed on until reaching the throne room and successfully ousting the rebels and Saranu from Koniz.
