3rd French Foreign Infantry Template - Fusilier of the German Regiment Alsace


A very old regiment, raised in 1656, Alsace saw much action in the SYW, and was present at Hastenbeck 1757, Cassel 1758, Bergen and Minden 1759, and Warburg 1760, to name only the most famous actions.

It was one of the first regiments to wear lapels, in the very narrow form shown here.
