Re: Flags - Sysoev's and Khanzhekov's

RE: Source 1 - Sysoev must have been a real tiger. As a lieutenant general during the Polish Revolt of 1831, he was wounded twice with bayonets, once by a saber to the head, once by a lance in the arm, and once by a bullet in the leg.

RE: Source 2 - Says that in 1869 the 1807 Sysoev and Khanzhenkov flags were given to Don Cossack Regiments Nos 2 and 3 respectively, and an inscribed metal band [skoba] added to the poles. By 1869, cossack regiments were permanent, although the men still passed in and out as they alternated periods of service and periods of home leave.
