Re: Flag question (not for the faint-hearted)

Hi Steve

That's great thanks. Thanks for letting me know what happened to the heart in 1816. So, between 1804 and 1816, it is likely to have been attached to the flag of a regiment. I don't think it can have been the 34th DB, however, as that unit didn't go to Saint-Domingue or Cuba and I don't think it had a special connection to Noailles. The 31st did participate in the campaign, and had formed part of the garrison at Le Mole under Noailles. But I can't find any evidence to pin the heart of the general to that flag!
