Infantry of the United Provinces army of the Netherlands at the battle of Fontenoy.
The Dutch Line and guard battalions did not incorporate their companies of grenadiers ?
Because we find in the order of battle of the Pragmatic Sanction army four Dutch battalions named “Unnamed Grenadier Units”, the Combined Grenadier Battalion Van Dorth and the Combined Grenadier Battalion Van Rijssel which would make so that 60 companies of grenadiers coming from 60 battalions!?
If I understand correctly, these sixty companies would come, among others, from the Dutch national battalions (including those of the Guard ?) of the German and Walloon battalions present at Fontenoy? (no Scottish battalions in the Army of the Dutch Army in Fontenoy)
But there were only 21 or 26 Dutch battalions present …
In conclusion, there are 10 different uniforms per battalions of Grenadiers in the Army of the Dutch Army of the Netherlands?
Do you know what regiments came from the companies that formed the Van Dorth Combined Grenadier Battalion and the Van Rijssel Combined Grenadier Battalion?
