A Branch in Time
A secret unit within the British Army. It consists of “experts” (both military and civilian) with a broad range of “skills”. People who normally join Q Company typically do so with the recommendation of Sir James Cavendish. This has lead to some assumptions of croneyism by Cavendish’ seniors.
The mission of Q Company is to investigate strange goings-on. Normally, specific small groups of specialists are seconded to regular army units.
Sir James Cavendish, the driving force behind Q Company, first identified the need for a special unit in the mid 1830s.
