RP No 158 FrenchNYW Chevauleger regt Noailles



It may well be all over but I've not had the time to post my last entry into Curts Challenge,not including the bonus rounds of course!!
For my 11th entry I've gone back to my 15mm Nine Years War French. The regt is another Chevauleger (Horse) regt. Noailles Horse was raised in 1689 and fought at the battles of Fleurs, Namur and Steenkirk and is the only Chevauleger regt dressed in red cuffed red!
I do have a few more to go then I can hang up the 15mm NYW brush for a while at least??????
