Siege of Stettin 1677, Swedish garrison

Dan Schorr kindly shared with me data about Swedish garrison from: Wimarson N. Sveriges krig i Tyskland 1675-1679. H. Möller, 1897.

According to Musebeck (Musebeck E. Die Feldzüge des Grossen Kurfürsten in Pommern, 1675-1677. Herrcke & Lebeling in Stettin, 1897. p. 95) Swedish garrison was of 5 foot regiments (1,900 men), 300 cavalry & 1,800 Burger militia in 11 coys. Wimarson's data is much more accurate (see below). According to him Swedes had 38 coys of infantry (2,370 men), 14 coys of reitars (599) & 163 artillerymen. Wimarson doesn't mention Burger militia. I assume that it was close to the Musebeck's data. So, totally Swedish garrison under GM J.J. von Wulffens was 3,800-3,900:
Infantry:
- Osgota Foot, 8 coys, 724
- Jonkoping Foot, 8coys, 488
- Jamtland Foot, 5 coys, 203
- Skane-Blekinge Foot, 3 coys, 153
- GM v. Wulffens Foot (enlisted), 8 coys, 421
- Ofverste P.Creimer (enlisted), 6 coys, 348
Cavalry
- Ofverste H.A. v. Uchttritz Rytter (enlisted), 6 coys, 279
- Jamtland Rytter, 4 coys, 189
- Skanska skvadronen, 4 coys, 131
Artillery - 163 men
Burger militia - 11 coys, 1,800
