Re: Saxon uniforms in NYW?

Is there any evidence for drummers and officers uniforms? I know there's an artillery officer earlier in the thread but I mean other than that? Thanks in advance. It was common in the Saxon Army that Officers and Drummer wore the same Uniform as the common Soldier. Only that Officers wore a Sash ar...

Re: Saxon Rifled Muskets

That is not entirely true. There have been "rifled" Firearms far earlier than the System Minie describes.
Minie presented his patent 1849 while the question about the Saxons carrying a rifled Musket refers to Minden 1759, so 90 Years before that.

Re: Russian uniform

If there is a jungle within Russian Uniforms for the 7YW Period...

Re: Saxon Rifled Muskets

I believe that this might be difficult. Even as Saxony boast one of the most complete Military Archive in Germany, dating back to the end of the TYW, Saxony was twice occupied by Prussia, stripped of all Battle Honors by Frederick, and ravaged several times by Wars, i.e., TYW, GNW, 7YW, NAPWA. Each ...

Re: Saxon Rifled Muskets

The Time of the 7YW saw Saxon Troops split up into to different Groups, payed and Equipped by their "Hosts". One Part served in the Army of Austria while the other Part was with the French. This said, the Saxons have been equipped in France so the "Rifled Muskets" may have been of French Origin. It ...

Re: Saxon uniforms in NYW?

Small addition to Dan's information's - The Boarspear was not only used by the Saxons but also by the Electorate of Brandenburg (Prussia) for the same reasons - give the Foot Soldiers some protection against Cavalry by building Chevaux de Fris after removing the Pikes.

Not sure if that helps...
But Re-Enactors of Bavarians at Hoechstaedt(Blenheim) are most likely the best source :wink:
