Hi Bandit,

I also thought that German and Hungarian regiments were not combined in grenadier battalions but I have checked in Enrico Acerbi’s ‘The Austrian Imperial-Royal Army 1805-1809’ and his information for Mayblümel / Locher tallies with what you have found.

Acerbi’s work is on Napoleon-Series and is available here as a pdf: http://www.centotredicesimo.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/ACERBI-The-Austrian-Imperial-Army-1805-09.pdf

If you don’t get an answer here you could try the General de Brigade forum where Dave Hollins posts replies on all matters Austrian.  He has been kind enough to help me on a couple of occasions in the past.
