Flags of the Dutch St Amant Regiment

Post by Natholeon » Wed Oct 10, 2018 12:01 am

Hello chaps
I'm back after a lengthy absence from the early 18th century with a new project - The Spanish Succession War in Spain. As part of this I've decided to recreate the Dutch Regiment No. 6 St Amant, which I believe were actually a Marine battalion. What I'm missing is any information on the standards carried by the regiment. I don't have the Robert Hall CD, and I'm not keen to shell out $100 NZD for one standard that may not actually be in it. I'm wondering if anyone knows what the standards looked like and if they can describe them to me - I'll hand paint them based on any description given.

Cheers
Nathan

Thanks Phil
Nothing showed up and I've tried to PM you since. I've reviewed my settings and they're all green light for PMs. A bit weird.

Thanks to Phil for his help. I thought I'd post a picture of the finished unit with my conjectural flags. St Amant's personal coat of arms features a snake coiled around a sword on an azure background, and three stars on red. I dispensed with the stars and just used the snake and sword, which were much cooler. :D
