Swedish colors taken at Lesnaya, 28 September 1708


# 1 Karelska Rytter, company standard
(drawing by D. Schorr)

Recent I found an article by Bolotina & Novoselov which includes a list of Swedish colours taken at Lesnaya. I compared them with data about colours from Hoglund’s book. Drawings are made by D. Schorr & used with his kind permission.
I don’t identify 3 units (## 15-17). Their names are given as in original text (see scan in Russian)

# 2 Skogh Dragoons, company standard
(drawing by D. Schorr)
(1)    Hoglund writes that “Standards m/1686 were never issued to the regiment. Through Poltava the regiment carried those issued in 1684 (reconstruction) — feuille-morte field with lion, numbers, wreath, monogram and crown in gold, and palm branches in silver”. The regiment lost at least one company colour of m/1684 at Erestfer. Evidently after 1701 it got a new set of colours. By the way, Abo Infantry had red colors.

# 3 Schreitefelt Dragoons, company color
(drawing by D. Schoor)
(2)    Hoglund mentions that “Colors were identical with d'Albedyhl/Schreiterfelt” (unit # 5)
(3)    Hoglund mentions that “Company colors blue with blue fringe. The arms of Uppland, Skaraborg, Södermanland, Närke, Västmanland and Elfsborg”. Skaraborg & Sedermanlands companies lost their colours at Erestfer.
(4)    The previous set was red & was lost at Dorpat in 1704. The new one was blue
(5)    Hoglund mentions that “the original color suite [lost at Hummelshoff where the troop was ruined] was perhaps quartered blue and yellow with crown and monogram”. Evidently the new set made 1702-03 was the same.
(6)    Hoglund mentions that “Colors unknown, but possibly like those of C.R. Stackelbergs bataljon [blue]”.
(7)    Hoglund mentions that Stackelberg’s regiment in 1708 had company colours of m/1686. Their upper half was blue, inner – yellow. The colour was decorated with Bjorneborg lans arms. Four such colours were lost at Poltava.  
(8)    Colours m/1686 were lost at the capitulation of Mittau in 1705. Evidently the new colours made in 1705-06 were the same.
# 4 Narke-Varmland Tremmaning Foot
company color
(drawing by D. Schoor)
(9)    Osterbottens: Hoglund mentions that “colors issued 1682 and 1703”. The illustration presents m/1686 color.
(10)  Maybe Smålands tremänningsregemente?
