Mounted jäger of the Württemberg Feldjäger zu Pferde

Raised 1759, at a strength of 2 squadrons. Served in Hesse and Saxony in 1759 and 1760. Disbanded 1768.

Württemberg troops served with the French and Austrians until 1760 but I do not know exactly where the cavalry, including the Württemberg Feldjäger, served. There was also a company of foot jäger, dressed very similarly (except for yellow lace on the hat, white breeches and smaller cuffs with 3 or possibly only 2 buttons), who were disbanded in 1765.

Thanks, Bill. Yes, they are indeed - always rather liked jäger uniforms. :-)

Appreciate your comments - I know I can rely on you to say something encouraging when I post and it's good for morale...

All the best,

David.

I, too, like the green uniforms and jaegers.

Love the colour of these uniforms. Green & Red always works for me.

Thanks, FB and Steve. :-)

Think I might do the Württemberg foot jäger too, even though there was only a company of them... More green and red! ;-)
