Request; photographs of my French flags in action, please.

I think I've spotted my French flags in action on a Russian wargamer's blog here: but otherwise have yet to see them in use. If anyone does use them for their French SYW army, can you let me have a link to a blog/website with pictures or send me photographs of them in action, please? (You can contact me via the contact form on the blog, in the left column.)



Minden French Flags Project - Regiment Rouergue

First raised 1667, Rouergue was a 2 battalion regiment and at Minden formed a brigade on the right wing with the single battalions of La Marche and Tournaisis. It was badly mauled at Warburg in 1760.

The same pattern of colours was carried from 1671 to 1791.

And this plate shows the uniform and flags in 1757:
