Re: Flags - Sysoev's and Khanzhekov's
In Response To: Re: Don Cossack flags/banners ()

Regarding Sysoev's and Khanzhekov's regiments and their flags, I have some doubt they saw use in the field. In Viskovatov the illustration appears to be of a flag in perfect condition. And cossack regiments were not permanent but rather disbanded after doing several years of service, so I'm not sure these two units from the 1805 campaign were still around for 1812.
