Regiment de la Sarre
Regiment de la Sarre
 

This was one of the regiments sent to America to take part in the French and Indian Wars. I particularly liked the combination of red and blue in the uniform (waistcoats were red, while cuffs and collars were blue), which was the main reseaon I chose to model this regiment!

Regiment de la Sarre

Plate, French in Canada, La Sarre Infantry, 1755-1760, by Eugene Leliépvre, James C. Tily 1961, Parks Canada CollectionsThe flag is a rather sombre brown and black, which is certainly not the brightest flag on the battlefield, but is still very distinctive.

As with many of my other units, the drummer wears the royal livery, consisting of a blue coat with red and white lacing.

Like the Regiment Belsunce, this unit features one of my favourite figures made by Front Rank Miniatures, the officer with his spontoon (shown below on the right). I've also included another officer, whom you can see near the flags, hat and sword in hand, exhorting his troops to advance.
