Hall is correct. Fynske in green and Prins Fredrik in blue. The change to grey did not occur until the 1691 ordinance which wasn't implemented for a number of years.

Charles XII,

A list of your sources would be most appreciated. I'm sure others would benefit from it as well.

Not very far, I'm afraid. The major problem is verifying sources. My colleagues in France are working on that issue. So unfortunately, it will be a while.

As Iain has pointed out there were three Walloon regiments in the Dutch Army during the WSS. They were raised in 1702 in the Bishopric of Lüttich (Liege), hence the name Lüttich . They were: Caris Trogne, 1705 Delspuerche,, 1710 Spaan Jamaert, 1712 Lynden I am not certain what Iain’s source is for C...

Yes, but uniform information is a bit more difficult to come by. No idea when it will be ready. I'm also working on Dutch Infantry Colours 1668-1675. I have two plates completed, but am still waiting on information that I have requested to arrive.

Edward, If you contact me off forum, I would be happy to send you a copy of the bibliography that I am compiling for the period. On the plus side, many of books are available for download from Google Books. There is little in English, but Child's book on the Army of Charles II should help with your ...

Rob, I believe what Charles XII is saying is that Massei is a corruption of Maffei because reading German Fraktur the f and s are very similar and often confused. There was no regiment Massei, only Maffei. I don't know who started the whole Massei mess, but it appears to be an error that is continuo...

Ray et al, The booklets cited by Mats were privately published by Jean Belaubre in the 1970s. All of them, except for the Dutch are covered in the Robert Hall Books and CDs. They are also available on the Golberg CDs; although these are in German. Golberg was a collaborator with Jean Belaubre and Dr...

Giorgio,

I believe the Reiver site is in error. There was to the best of my knowledge no infantry regiment Massei, only a Maffei I know Reiver Rob is on this list. Perhaps he can tell us the source for Massei.

Hope this helps.

Mats, I have no doubt that Bolsey's regiment was recruited and formed in the Netherlands, but they were a Brandenburg regiment and certainly not in Dutch service throughout their short history.

Rob, Thanks for taking the time to post your references. This is a difficult period to investigate, as there is little in English. I have located a number of books and articles, mostly from the 19th Century, on the war in French, German, Dutch, Swedish and Danish, but little of value in English. The...
