History

The 1st Outer Austenasia Division was founded on 8 March 2010 to accommodate large numbers of new recruits who had enlisted in the Austenasian Army to fight for Emperor Esmond III during the Austenasian Civil War. The commanding officer of the Division, General Sir Ryan, fought in the Battle of Carshalton Park in April 2010, and on 13 January 2011 (as part of wide reforms to the Austenasian Army) the Division was renamed Legio II Augusta after a classical Roman legion of the same name, with some of its soldiers claiming the Austenasian legion to be a "resurrection" of sorts of the Roman one.
