Infantry Regiment Dillon
Part of the Irish Brigade, this regiment was employed mainly in Spain and later in Italy before seeing service on the Rhine towards the end of the War of Spanish Succession. A "must" in any French army with its distinctive red coats, the brigade stands out well amongst the mainly grey/white ranks of the French infantry. In BLB they would usually be rated as elite. Again the figures are mainly Foundry with the odd Dixon thrown in. Flags by GMB.
