  • All,

    Was working on an OOB containing the 2nd. Reserve Korps for the Austrian Army. Grenediers and Heavy Horse. Since we don't have Kuirassiere,(yet), I was doing up the Dragoon Brigade. One of the Regiments is called the Wurttemberg Dragoons. It is the only reference I have ever seen to them. None of my other information lists them or even has Wurttemberg as a previous name. Anyone have anything on this? Appreciate it.

    Yes, but that would require me to actually DO something. ;)

    owner of the regiment was duke of württemberg, later Vincenz Freiherr Knesevich (reg. number.: 3) they looks like other dragoons (+red facings)

    one mere note regarding topic:

    some of austrian chevaulegeres regiments was wearing white uniforms like dragoons instead of green: nos.: 3,5,6 (according to napoleonistyka)

  • Pangi and Born,

    Pangi - OOB is from "Crisis on the Danube", Duetches Armee, 20 March, 1809.
    Yes, was aware of the occasional Green Jacket among the White-coated Dragoons. Have Napoleonstkya booked-marked for reference online. I figured Wurrtemberg had been the Patron/Owner of the regiment at some point. It doesn't show up in the 1809 or later registries. Thanks for the 1809 name.

    Born - Been there with spellcheck. ;)
