And here is the last French Infantry Template for today - a private of regiment Béarn. During the SYW the 1st battalion stayed in France and was mostly employed on coastal guard duties. The 2nd battalion went to Canada in 1755; it was involved in the capture of Fort Oswego in 1756, the capture of Fort William-Henry in 1757, the battle of Ticonderoga in 1758, the siege of Quebec and the battles of Montmorency and The Plains of Abraham in 1759, the battle of Ste. Foy and siege of Quebec in 1760, and it surrendered at Montreal in September of that year. The uniform is very similar to that of Berry (below) except that it has only 3 buttons on the cuff.
