Re: Where the Colours of the 69th Foot Went

Hmmmm, Dutch units carried no official colours during the 100-Days campaign, so it must have been an unofficial one if indeed it was Dutch. But the Dutch had no regimental flag captured during the day by French cavalry whatsoever, so I doubt the claim of it being Dutch.
On the other hand, if the flag was orange which had faded to yellow, it might have been, since almost no records exist of the unofficial battalion flags, so it might have been a unit-design....

What happened to that one?
