Roger,

another great looking unit, having the grey uniforms makes a good contrast to the Swedish blue, If I could ask, where did you get the standard from?

Thanks guys. Mark I have cheated a little, I couldnt find any references to standards for Adelsfana so I have used a spare Lifeguard Standard on the assumption that it would be similar. Fingers crossed I am not too far out.

Standard of the Adelsfanan i Livland – Field red; obverse had a silver griffin holding a silver sword with gold hilt; reverse had the Royal monogram within a wreath all in gold and silver. Fringe red silk mixed with gold thread.

Hope this is helpful.

Dan I have an Ostgota Cavalry flag which looks basicly right which I think I can alter to look `correct, does that sound about right?
