I was hit by another bout of insomnia last night, so i decided to pull out some Perry Prussians to paint. I completed half a battalion(including the command) and realized I had no flags to use for them. so I set about looking for suitable bits to make my flags.
the research is a little sketchy. i was mostly relying on pictures on warflag with a few places cross referenced.
|1st east Prussian infantry, 2nd battalion?|
The first 2 flags I've done are teh 2nd battalion of the 1st and 2nd East Prussian Regiments( 1st and 3rd infantry regiments, respectively), i think. The 1st battalion flags(Avancier fahne?) seem to be essentially inverted colours. so the 1st east Prussian 1st battalion flag would be white field instead of black, teh eagle would be gold, with the white around it black.
|2nd East Prussian Regiment, 2nd battalion?|
Unfortunately I'm currently unemployed so my sources are a little lacking at the moment. any help anyone can give would be greatly appreciated.
