New Colours for my napoleonic Russians



I just detected that I have given my Russian Sievska Infantry to old Coloures, the ones from 1797...Couldent have it as that as they got new Colours in 1803 as well as a new coloure on the flag staves from March 1807... so if I got it more or less right they now should have brownish colour on the staves.

I got the info and the colours from the Napflag site.

    2. Better make it 3rd batallion (no difference in colours). Number 2 was a reserve with many novice soldiers.

  4. Fine work in WSS86 by the way. I especially liked that you rate the brigade of my native province an elite formation :)
