crimea help

Hello,
I search informations for organization of a british foot regiment (generic) for crimea era and the distinctive colors of the regiments of heavy brigade cavalry.
Thank you.
Rene Dave.

Re: crimea help

Hi Rene, Heavy Brigade colors etc basically were the same as Waterloo for Union Brigade.
British Infantry organization was terrible.Too many sick/diseased soldiers invalids.On paper battaklion strengths looked good 950 strong, but battlefield effectives were often down to 60 per company.8 Companies per battalion one grenadier and one light(skirmish) company.
