The Royal des Vaisseaux and La Sarre Battalions report for duty

My on going WSS project has two more battalions added to it. The Royal des Vaisseaux and La Sarre.  The nice thing about these two units is their coat and cuff colors are exactly the same.  The flags are the only things that distinguished them.  Below are some photos I took of them.  The flags have been hand painted.  Again the colors all come from Robert Hall's book "Flags and Uniforms of the French Infantry under Louis XIV 1688-1714".


  1. Sure the coat and cuffs were the same color, Vic. BUT...the cut of the coat pockets and arrangement of the buttons were different :) Just kiddin, nice work again!
