The Royal des Vaisseaux and La Sarre Battalions report for duty

Posted on September 1st, 2017 under , . Posted by

My on going WSS project has two more battalions added to it. The Royal des Vaisseaux and La Sarre.  The nice thing about these two units is their coat and cuff colors are exactly the same.  The flags are the only things that distinguished them.  Below are some photos I took of them.  The flags have been hand painted.  Again the colors all come from Robert Hall’s book “Flags and Uniforms of the French Infantry under Louis XIV 1688-1714”.
