SW101 Swedish Line Infantry Shako, advancing (10mm)
This pack contains thirty six Swedish Line infantry wearing Shako. It is designed to represent a Swedish Infantry Battalion which had four companies. The light troops in Swedish battalions tended to be removed from their parent battalions and formed into specific light units. Each battalion had a single platoon of light troops in it, so that the removal did not significantly reduce the size of a battalion. This was increased to a company between 1806 and 1813 but then reduced to a platoon again in 1813. From the research we have carried out so far, Swedish infantry only carried one Standard throughout the entire period.
The figures included are; thirty three Centre Company figures, one Officer, one drummer and one Standard bearer.
