Austrian IR 14 Salm-Salm

I really like the somber black facings of this Austrian regiment owned by Nicolaus Leopold Fürst von Salm-Salm, indeed it was the only Austrian regiment that had black facings. It would also appear that regulations concerning the dress of musicians were ignored as the drummers continued to wear reversed coloured coats for some time.

As a brief aside, the Prince was rather a scoundrel as he had 18 illegitimate children.
