The army parades past the King on their return

The Prussians did well holding of the French at Partizan on Sunday and made an orderly withdrawal to avoid being outflanked.

On their return the army marched past the King who saluted their efforts from the walls of the capitol.  Leading the parade were the heroes of the day, the dragoons of the von Kleist Freikorps.

von Kleist Frei-Dragoon regiment.

15 battalions of infantry led by I/IR 15, IR6 and III/IR 15

 Bringing up the rear, HR5 von Reusch

The troops are now all back in barracks awaiting the next campaign and further chances of glory or an opportunity to redeem themselves.

  2. Very impressive parades!

  3. Super pictures! Always enjoy a visit here and a chance to see your work.

    1. Thanks David, and it was nice to say hello on Sunday.

  4. The state infrastructure was inefficient and lazy, while the army was disciplined and efficient. Policemen in the street were overweight, unshaven, and unkempt - they traveled in banged up pickups. Soldiers, on the other hand, were lean, well groomed and smartly dressed.guarantor loans
