Flags and uniform of Prussian Ex-Saxon Regiment IR 58

The penultimate ex-Saxon Prussian regiment flags!

Formerly Saxon Regiment Prinz Clemens Infantry, after the surrender at Pirna in October 1756 this regiment became Prussian IR58, and was made  the garrison of Halberstadt.

Its commander was Major-General Count E. B. von Flemming, January 1757 to October 1757.

Having had many desertions in 1757 the regiment was disbanded in October that year and the surviving troops absorbed into the Pomeranian Provincial troops at Stettin.

[Again the short account is taken from details in Kronoskaf.]

Once again here are two versions of the flags, the ones below with the new improved eagle.


And this was the uniform in 1756:
