Kreisinfanterieregiment Mengersen

This regiment was raised by the Bishopric of Paderborn from the Lower Rhenish Circle. Figures are again from Eureka and it is worth noting that these three recent regiments have grenadiers wearing bearskins in the Austrian style. The flags are conjectural but as the Bishop was Clemens August of Bavaria the blue-white checky is appropriate. The coat of arms of the bishopric was red/white so I have given the officer a sash of those colours as well as the drummer.
