Regimental standardMusketeer uniformGrenadier uniform

Newly formed in late 1757 and recruited from the Zweibrücken area, the Regiment Sumpflöwen saw its first action at the Battle of Vergoldeten. Perhaps inspired by being brigaded with the famous Lintzer regiment, this regiment distinguished itself by executing its orders with a precision that surprised even its senior commanders, and put up a fusilade of musketry sufficient to shatter and enemy battalion.

Good to discover a new 'Unit Profile'!

Indeed, they look good!

But why do I automatically think 'Sunflower Musketeers - what?' ?
