It is always nice to find an exception to the rule.  It makes me want to paint up this battalion.  They would look really colourful.

Incidentally, a while ago I was trying to establish which regiment in a combined grenadier battalion would provide the colour party and I wasn’t able to find any definitive answer.  Do you have any thoughts on the matter?

Initially, I thought it would be provided by the senior regiment numerically (ie. the lower-numbered regiment). Now, however, I am inclined to think it would be the colonel’s regiment that would carry the standard (and so form up in the centre in the case of a battalion formed of three regiments).
