While in the environs of Schaumburg-Lippe Bückeburg have a look at this early submarine. The Steinhuder Hecht.
Steinhuder Meer is a large lake with a fortress on it on an artificial island. Wilhelmstein. I visited it when I was a teenager. I did a German exchange (Bristol Hannover) and my hosts took me there. There is a model of the submarine there.
From the wiki
The Schaumburg-Lippe-Bückeburg Carabinier and Jäger Corps (abbreviated: Karabinierkorps) was formed in 1753 by Count Wilhelm von Schaumburg-Lippe (Bückeburg) as a light troop corps on horseback and foot. In the build-up phase, it consisted of 75 cavalry and 50 foot hunters.

In April 1757, a native of Poland, Herr von Monkewitz, took command of the Carbine Corps with the rank of cavalryman, which he held until the end of the seven-year-old War.
