French SYW Generals
1) JudeVincent de St.Pern. Born in 1694, he served in Flanders in the WAS under Saxe and then commanded the Grenadiers Royale and de France in the SYW. Died 1761
2)Lt-General Louis Joseph de Bourbon, prince de Condé. A prince du Sang and son-in-law of Prince Soubise he warrants his own wiki link:
He was more famously the founder of the Army of Conde which fought against the French Republic after the Revolution.
3) Lt-General duc de Sourches. I have not been able to find out much about this chap.
4) Lt-General duc de Fitzjames. Due to his Stuart bloodline he gets a full wiki entry
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles de Fitz-James
although he was quite active in the WAS he was getting quite long in the tooth by the SYW.
The last pictures shows some brigade commanders (Marechal de camp) although one of them, Rougrave, wears the yellow/blue of his cavalry regiment.
