Re: Regiment Bois D'avid, Luneburg-Zell

Gentlemen, According to Sichart, “Geschichte der könglich hannoverschen Armee”, Vol.1, the two battalions of the Guard Regt were both Calenberg-Hanoverian. Lüneburg-Celle did not have a Guard infantry unit. The Hanoverian Guard Regt was formed in 1690 from Infantry Regt Ohr and the Schloss and Garde...

Re: Pikemen at Fleurus

I spoke too soon. I've located an online source for most of the maps and plans from Beaurain. It contains Fleurus, Leuse and Neerwinde. Unfortunately, the two plans for Steenkerke are missing.

Re: Pikemen at Fleurus

Thanks. As I feared. I believe there are some 151 maps associated with them work. They are possibly in a separate folio. Maciek indicated that the Gallica editions have maps, but when I checked, only the 1690 and 1694 volumes had any maps, and they were maps of Flanders and a few camps. The battle m...

Ray,

I could be wrong, but I believe both Guard battalions were Hannoverian.

Re: mounted dragoon query

Barry, I apologize. This will be my last shot on this subject. Mr. Turrabear, I stand by my assertion that Saxon dragoon regiments had a kettledrummer, and that they participated in combat. Whether or not you wish to believe it, is your business. However, the sources you cited are a bit questionable...

Re: Regiment Bois D'avid, Luneburg-Zell

The information below is taken from August Kühn's “The Subsidy-, Imperial- and House-Soldiers of the Elector George Louis of Hanover-Calenberg and of Duke George William of Lüneburg-Celle, later united in the Army of the ELECTORATE OF HANOVER”. I believe a copy can be purchased from Caliver Books. U...

Re: mounted dragoon query

A ketteldrummer was common in most cavalry regiments of the period. He was part of the regimental staff. He was less common in dragoon regiments; although Saxon dragoon regiments did have a kettledrummer as part of their “Etat” or table of organization. This is confirmed by the 1701 “Etat” for Saxon...

Great! Let me know if it has the maps. The Google edition does not.

Re: Pikemen at Fleurus

I am unaware of any books post -1960; Pre-1960 there are the following: Jean de Beaurain, “Histoire Militare du duc de Luxembourg en Flandre”.or the German version, “Feldzüge des Marshalls von Luxemburg oder Militärgeschichte von Flandern in den Jahren 1690-1694.

Re: Pikemen at Fleurus

Maciek, I believe the statement originated with David Chandler in his book, The Art of Warfare in the Age of Marlborough. On pages 67 and 68 he writes, "... at the battle of Fleurus, it was widely noted that several German battalions using firearms alone had proved capable of repulsing French cavalr...

Re: Pikemen at Fleurus

The 1689 date for the abolition of the pike in the Brandeburg infantry is a bit suspect. Curt Jany in Vol.1 of his “Geschichte der Preußischen Armee“, page 590 indicates that the pike was officially abolished in 1698; although, the process began some 8 years earlier. Here is what he had to say: “Als...

I'll wait for an European distributor though
Peter Berry of Baccus6mm will carry it in the UK and Europe. It should be available from him at the same time.

Re: Danish Cavalry Uniforms & Banners

Mark,

Churchill pretty much covered the uniforms. You might also look at Robert Hall's Danish plates available from the Pike and Shot Society. The standards of the cavalry regiments in which you are interested are available on these plates.

Re: German Regiments in Anglo Dutch Army

Mark,

Get yourself a copy of Sapherson's "The Dutch Army of William III."
It is available from Caliver Books. It contains the names of the subsidy regiments along with some basic uniform details.

Re: German Regiments in Anglo Dutch Army

Günter and Wienand, My research on the Saxon Army Army indicates the following: Only two Saxon cavalry regiments, Bünau and Reibolt, were in Dutch service from 1694-97. The Saxons provided a considerable force, most of their army, to the campaigns on the Upper Rhine 1688-94. Thereafter, their forces...
