Danish battalion showing the regimental yellow flag I have created
from the Vinkhuizen collection illustration. Figures are mostly 18mm
Old Glory SYW Austrians.
may wonder why some of the uniform details differ from the plate. The
plate is dated 1761 so, besides the introduction of lapels in 1760,
the coloured trousers disappeared (as they did in many other
countries ) to be replaced with white or buff. So the unit in the
1740-50s still probably used blue trousers and waistcoats. The only
other mystery concerns lace colour for the tricorne. This regiment
had gold lace for officers and NCOs but did the other ranks have
white or yellow. Sources differ on this but I have gone for white a
la Prussian model rather than the Hanoverian model.
