Cheers! I imagine it's just a case of bagging all the units that were in Germany. :) The only one I haven't got is the 15th LDs. And now Frederic has informed be about the det from the 18th LDs, I think I'll have to do one or two of those as escorts or messengers.

And it's the 2nd Company who were 'The Blowflies'. The 1st Company were 'The Groom of the Stool's Own'.

How do you keep track of all those facts? :-D
If "The System" is the answer, who asked such a bloody stupid question?

Lovely figures RMD, your depth of knowledge and recall of facts is extraordinary as it covers multiple periods

Wonderful units! :-) Wish I had the time and energy to do some British cavalry standards - but hopefully I will eventually...

Cheers,

David.

Well you did the speculative guidons for the Legion Britannique; that's 99% of the work done for most of 'em!

As you've said though, it's a lot of work for something that's going to be absolutely microscopic on the table (unless you're doing 28mm or bigger).

I'd ask you to do a standard for the Groom of the Stool's Own, but of course, that would be ridiculous; everyone knows that they didn't have standards...
