Salzburg Infantry Regiment

The Bavarian District supplied a regiment to the Reichsarmee during the Seven Years' War. This regiment's book strength consisted of 2 battalions, including 1 grenadier company and 2 battalion guns for an initial total of 1,170 men. There were contingents from the Bishopric of Salzburg, from Regensburg and Passau. Some of the contributions were tiny – for example Niedermunster Abbey contributed 8 men. Each company supplied a flag so there was a wide variety and these four samples are shown on Kronoskaf.

Figures are from Front Rank and make a pleasant change.
