Regiment de Concise

Most of the men from this regiment were from the town of Concise on the shores of Lac Neuchatel. They seem to be townsmen who are in need of exercise although their drill seems second to none.

The standard is a rampant red lion on a white background. The uniform is Prussian blue with yellow facings and blue stockings (yellow for officers), the hat has a yellow lining. The drummer wears a yellow coat with blue facings and yellow stockings. The drum is red with white ropes.
The battalion only carries one colour.
