    Hi JG,

    For some reason, Facebook won’t let me post the link to your website (someone was asking about information on Russians).

    Regards,

    I’d wondered what had happen to 3rd Selenginsk – very useful, thank you

    Thanks again for all your hard work in putting your page together, Jonathan.

    Might I just ask, in all your research have you come across anything relating to Russian Hussar regiments distinguishing their battalions (or squadrons) by the colour of pompoms c.1812. I’ve come across vague references to troopers of the first battalion having white pompoms and those of the second, red, but nothing concrete.

    Regards,

    Splendid work – I like the way you keep the mounted officer for the stand with the Eagle

    I must buy Dominic’s piece, but in the meantime, I’d be delighted if someone did know when the Selenge/Kapor exchange took place

    I understand that the Selenguisk and Kaporsk exchanged at some point, but I believe the latter were in 3rd Division for the battle of Valutina Hill.

    To make matters worse, many Skandic historians insist on a Viking Age, which precedes the middles ages!

    I am very grateful for all your hard work, Jonathan, especially as I intend to do 3rd Infantry Division c.1812 in 2016. 

    Am I correct in reading that Russian squadrons were not half the size of western ones as previously thought, i.e. a Hussar regiment would have ten squadrons each at c.140?

    Thanks again

    It’s fine to be critical, but it’s hard to read Kevin’s Amazon review as anything other than his taking the usual umbrage at someone being less than complementary about Napoleon and Napoleonic France. The same sort of nonsense is going on over on PMT at the moment, but directed by his buddy against Baz. Pretty unsavoury stuff, but par for the course. Anyway – onwards and upwards

    Agreed, but it is not unreasonable to test such research, especially when the findings have been presented without the full evidence. I too look forward to reading more of John’s supporting data in due course.

    I fear that, in this field at least, I must rest also on the laurels of others. However, I hope that does not preclude me from participating in discussions here – or indeed on TMP.

    Did you have anything in particular in mind when in comes to casualty figures across the whole division, Jonathan?

    Okay, so I’ve now found the original thread that this was posted in response to – it is on a different forum!

    Please, if you want to continue conversations here that start elsewhere, then at least provide a context.

    I can imagine that a haphazard spread of a large number of cannon balls could cause a body of horse some difficulty, much like longbowmen digging numerous small pits in front of their position at Crécy.

    If you don’t mind me, saying, whilst a demanding exchange can help hone one’s argument, it’s always challenging to remain cool in the face of ignorance, but descending to their level never helps. However, it’s hard for them to counter someone who continues to calmly state the facts without rancour.

    Keep up the good work, John, it is much appreciated

    Would an example not be found amongst the combined arms corps of the AWI, such as the Queen’s Rangers’ attack on the Stockbridge Indians?
