Grenadiers de France, 1st and 2nd BTN

Grenadiers de France, a four battalion regiment numbered 40,  which was created in 1749 from the grenadier companies of  regiments disbanned after the WAS. In fact each battalion was called a 'brigade' and consisted of 12 companies. Each brigade was commanded by a maréchal de camp so this is was a regiment top-heavy with senior officers. Additionally each pair of companies was commanded by a colonel so a single battalion/brigade had a further six colonels!

All figures are by Front Rank and the remaining 2 battalions/brigades will be shown shortly.
