Into Franconia

Just been reading the Petri Journal. Wonderful insight into the Campaign of Prince Henry. Loads of snippets of invaluable detail.

One of the Prussian columns had the following advanced guard:

Commanded by Major-General Meinicke, seconded by Maj-General Linstedt.

7 sq of Kleist Hussars
Dragoon Regt. Meinicke
Grenadier Batts. Billerbeck, Ostenreich & Lubath.
Freebattalion Collignon.

As I follow their adventure I thought a few photographs were appropriate. Fortunately I have all the said units.

ps More photos on the forum.
