First of the New French Infantrymen - Regiment Artois

And here is the first of the French infantry, a private of the Artois Regiment. The 2nd Battalion was part of the garrison of Louisbourg in Canada and was captured when it fell to the British in 1758. The 1st Battalion mostly served on garrison duty in France during the SYW. Distinctive features of this uniform are the cuffs with 6 buttons and the pocket flap with 9.
