After an absence of two years serving in the Prussian Army as an Adjutant to HRH Prince Heinrich, Crown Prince Albrecht von Lettow returned to Fortenbras Palace in the uniform of a Prussian officer having risen to the rank of colonel. Prince Albrecht, whom had already seen combat in the Royal Army of Saxe-Huack as a Captain of Grenadier Guards, was thrust into battle on several occasions during his tour in the Prussian Army. That night the Duke ordered a royal banquet, during which the Crown Prince was promoted to colonel in his father's Royal Army.
After the dinner and an appropriate amount of time spent with family and friends the Crown Prince was summoned to the west wing of Fortenbras Palace which houses the Royal General Staff. Inside the Prince found the Duke, General Bach, Colonel Vorbeck, Captain Stueben, Colonel Kliest and the many other officers waiting for his briefing. Colonel Prince Albrecht gave a detailed report of his experiences in the Prussian Army and was quite eager to suggest the creation of an Jaeger Battalion as the newest addition to the Royal Army. Everyone agreed and the Prince was chosen as it's commander. Thus that night, on paper, the 1st Jaeger Bn was born. The Prince set about filling it's ranks immediately.
