Hi all and happy Easter, I would like to know If the flags carried by the Dutch Blue guard were the same as they used in the Franco Dutch war of 1672 ... I Have the ones made by Warfare MIniatures. Thanks in advance :)

Hi, I wouldn't say so because the English imagery would not have been relevant - star and garter/St Georges's cross etc. I have a book about the siege of Naarden in 1673 which shows the uniform to be roughly the same (facings yellow instead of orange coat dark blue grey but it does not detail the standards.

Thanks Barry ! I may use them anyway... or use the one shown in Sapherson's list, captured at Seneffe.

Cheers

Barry
Not wanting to high jack this thread, is there any chance of getting the flags in 20mm size ?
