In Response To: Re: Guard of Paris 1807 ()

Greg, Robert,

I don't know when the "garde de Paris" Rgt joined Mortier's 8th Corps, but according to the source : SHAT, MR 657, Historique du 8e Corps d'Armée, 1806-1807", the composition of the 8th Corps, on the 1st of june 1807 was as follows :

1re div. (Dupas) :

4e Rgt d'inf. légère
15e de ligne
58e de ligne
Garde de Paris
1re Cie d'art. légère hollandaise
1re Cie du 1er Rgt d'art. à pied
1re Cie du 5e Bat. bis du train

2e division polonaise (Dombrowsky) :

2e Rgt d'inf. polonaise.
3e idem
4e id.
artillerie polonaise (6 pièces)
1re Cie de sapeurs polonais
1er Rgt de cav. polonaise

Cavalerie :

2e Rgt de cuirassiers hollandais

Parc de réserve :

During the battle of Friedland (14th june 1807), the "Garde de Paris" occupied the village of Heinrichsdorf with the 1st bat. of the 4th light inf. Rgt.*

The casualties were :

Off. : 1 KIA, 5 wounded
