Friedrich August I. wrote:AFAIK there have been no commandflags for the French Brigade, Division or Corps Commands. Eagles and other Standards have been given to Line Infantry and Cavalry Regiments but not to the Artillery as those Regiments of Foot or Horse Artillery never fought as a unit but in single Batteries of different Regiments.
I don't believe that other nations in the Napoleonic Aera had such flags.
As a Saxon Army "Lover" I know that the Artillery Flag of the Saxon Artillery has been removed before the 1810 Reorganisation. It can still be found in the Fortress Koenigstein in Saxony.
Hope that helps,
Many thanks Günter, for your reply.
The issue arose from the consideration that in the Orders of Battle of the French Army, Artillery is indicated as "reserve" it is allocated to the Divisions or Corps, not to individual Regiments. Ditto for the Guard.
The same holds for the British and the Prussians. Source: Osprey book dedicated to Waterloo.
But as you tell me that the Corps and Divisions do not have their own flag, then this could be for the "Reserve Artillery".
We will have to deploy our Artillery Commands without Standardbearer.
Do You behave in the same way?
