5th French Infantry Template - Regiment Royal Roussillon


This was an old regiment with a distinguished history. Both battalions of this regiment had a fairly eventful time in the SYW. The 1st battalion arrived in Canada in 1756 and fought in various major engagements including Ticonderoga and the Plains of Abraham before returning to France in 1761. The 2nd battalion fought in Germany and was at Rossbach. The uniform had 6 buttons on the cuff with the common horizontal pocket with 3 buttons.
