    Default What Napoleonic Regiment Is This?

    Can anyone tell me which Regiment these soldiers were? They appear to be mostly Irish and used by the British in their Spanish campaign.

    It starts at 3:26 in the episode " Sharpe's Battle "

    I have never heard or seen any images of this company before. What are they?

    its just a household/palace guard for the king of spain i thought. May even be a fictional regiment. And its definetely not meant to be a british regiment

    AND THIS ONE, Someone knows? I fear it's the 95th rifles (as sharpe vid above) or the king german legion, in that case I think the shako is wrong... Perhaps the symbol on the shako may help...

    I think the same: spanish troops. The type of bicorn is typically a spanish one.

    Did you not watch the actual ruddy episode? They're the Spanish Royal Irish Company.

    Surely you guys have ears and eyes?

    They were born in Spain to Irish parents, people who left Ireland in the 1700s because of Penal Laws, I doubt they were too happy fighting with the Brits.

    Those are KGL Light Infantry, not Silesian Schuetzen. Silesian Scuetzen look quite different to them.
