Cavalry Sqn Size

A question reference the size of Cavalry Sqn's in ULB. In WSS rules used by Warflag in the states a infantry Battalion is 12 men and a cavalry sqn is 2 men.

The Period 1660 - 1721 Required/Recommended Reading

This is a great period and everybody knows the works of Chandler. What else is a good read for our period?

Horse Guards and Horse Grenadier Guards

Is it me or does anybody else fine early British lineage hard to follow. William III has Horse Guards which is 1 to 5 troops at times and Horse Grenadier Guards with 1 to 4 troops at times.
