New French 1812 Cavalry Flags from Flags for the Lads

As ever Salute is bringing lots of new product announcement for us Napoleonic fans!

This time it's from Flags for the lads with a timely release of flags for 1812 cavalry.

Available in 15mm and 25/28mm scales!

The 1812 French range is the Grande Armee that invaded Russia in 1812. These are the 1811 pattern flags for the Guard, and the 1812 pattern for the Line officially only carried by the 1st battalion of the Regiment, the rest carried fanions. Not all Regiments followed this rule and there was no official design for the fanion, although the fanion colour was laid down. A large number of foreign units are included in this range as part of the organisation of the Grande Armee, and as such they carry the style of flag for the 1812 period.

Sheets NFC7 to NFC15 contain flags for the cavalry regiments of Napoleon's I, II and III Cavalry Corps for the 1812 campaign.
