    In this new series Dr. Watson used to be a Captain (and medical doctor) serving with the 5th Northumberland Fusiliers deployed to Afghanistan. The 5th Northumberland Fusiliers did indeed serve in Afghanistan in the Second Afghan-Anglo war (1878-1880). The first story of the old Sherlock Holmes series took place in 1881. The 5th Northumberland Fusiliers, however, was renamed into the "The Northumberland Fusiliers" in the year 1881 (no 5th left in title), which means the modern Dr. Watson service with the 5th Northumberlands is a nod to its old heritage. The former 5th Northumberlands evolved into its last formation named "Royal Northumberland Fusiliers" and was amalgamated in 1968. Watsons current Regiment would be 'The Royal Regiment Of Fusiliers', with whom have served in Afghanistan multiple times over the past 16 years.
