Although the company did not participate at Minden, it is one of the few
military companies that existed during the AWI and is recognized as a
military unit today.

Great Britain, is today a ceremonial unit of the Rhode Island Militia,
Council of Historic Military Commands.
During the AWI the company split and members faught on both sides. The unit
is still chartered as an Army Reseve unit today. It is an "inactive
reserve" guard unit which means it can be reactivated and called to active
