A military history of the late 17th century and the early 18th century
I do know that there used to be a Re-enactment group for this unit in France- my Friend -sculptor and author David Wilson was- and possibly is a memeber. Though I suspect the group is now defunct.Did the unit exist in the SYW? Its even more shortlived sister regt Albany was I think disbaned in the 1750s. I also have some card cut out soldiers of this unit A set of 7 caed sheets showing the regiment as well as Artillery and a few civilians. and Officers- foot figure about 90mm high. I seem to have ended up with about half a dozen sets......
the group are still going strong - they were like Ogilvy's active in the SYW
Great! This is exactly the regiment on my todo-list as next French unit! Thank you very much. Do you believe the black gaiters really? I thought, they were white in any case?! Peter
According to David- I asked him the regiment was disbanded in 1762 and the survivors moved to regt Clare. No major actions in the SYW - garrison and outpost work only
black gaiters are common on images from 1760 onwards
